Child Right – An Essay on ‘Child Right’

An Essay on Child Right

Generally, child right means the right that the children get by birth. It also refers to the confirmation of children to save them from insecurity, illiteracy, exploitation, etc. Children are supposed to enjoy some rights such as the right to shelter, right to food, right to health, right to education, right to play, and so on. Children can’t live properly without child rights.

In the context of Nepal, there are still many children who are deprived of education. Their parents are compelled to send their children to work because of poverty. Some children are deprived of a balanced diet because their parents cannot afford them due to poverty. Some children are orphans and wandering in the street. They are not getting simple food to eat, rooms to live in, and clothes to wear. It means to say that they are deprived of their basic needs. Their life is very miserable. Some are working in hotels, restaurants, garages, factories in low salary just to fill their bellies. Some children are made to engage in crimes. Even the children of rich parents are not allowed to play games for a long time or to watch TV. Every time they are forcefully compelled to continue study against their desire.

Nowadays, many NGOs and INGOs are working in the sector of children. But we are not getting the expected result. There is not a sheer improvement in children’s condition. The government has also done many things for the children. The government school children are getting free education and books. Some of the children from low caste and downtrodden families are also getting scholarships. The government has established many schools to study for orphans. But these works are not sufficient. Nepal government still has to do many things in the sector of children.

Nepal government should make strict laws in the favour of children. The persons who exploit children should be strictly punished. Everybody should be aware of child rights. Every parent should let their children enjoy the child right at their home.
