DEVISE aims to facilitate the inclusion of the children, from the underprivileged and marginalized sections of the society, into the larger arena of education by equipping them with an appropriate understanding of English. Their objective is to transcend the barriers of socio-economic inequalities within the education system, which in return would open up myriad avenues and opportunities for the students, to traverse and excel at.
In pursuance of their aim to provide inclusive education to all, we have launched a blog on Child Rights. It is a platform to discuss various issues related to child rights ranging from the Right to Education to the Juvenile Justice Act, 2015.
About DEVISE’s Child Rights Blog
Through this blog, they aim to build up a repository of sound research on child rights which is accessible to all. In order to ensure wider accessibility, they translate all their blogs to four other languages which are Malayalam, Telugu, Hindi, and Punjabi.
The blog welcomes submissions from law students, academicians, and activists.
