In February 2015, I started my project on Anti-Child Labor as a part of a school program on social justice. I have persisted with this project for over 18 months with the key highlights being:
- Poster and Hoarding designs that I put together were the lynchpins of a nation-wide police campaign,
- A Website I designed (www.childsright.in) was recognized and adopted by Mumbai Police at an event where I was felicitated,
- A Citizen’s Online Network that I created and administered on a platform called Local Circles became a platform for citizens to voice their opinions on laws and report incidences of illegal child labor to the Police and
- my efforts were appreciated by none other than renowned ‘Save the Childhood’ activist and Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Kailash Satyarthi.
