Children are an integral part of any society. Their dependency on others for the fulfilment of their basic needs like food, shelter, education, safety and security makes them a vulnerable group. Society is judged on its ability to provide for the needs of the vulnerable. Provision of each of these needs is the responsibility of primary caregivers but requires assistance from multiple agencies working at the national level to ensure an effective delivery. Children’s rights can be defined as “the rights, which are concerned both with the protection of the individual child and with the creation of the conditions in which all children can develop to their full potential.” [1] The larger domains in which these rights are usurped are those related to education, health, neglect, abuse (physical, emotional, and sexual), corporal punishment, and child labour.
