More than 10 organisations from different parts of the state observed the week (Nov 14-21) through different programmes related to child rights under the supervision of Right Track.

Different activities were organized at the organizational level like leadership trainings, sit and draw competitions and film festivals.

General Secretary of Right Track said, "Childhood is the most valuable period of human life. It is meant to proper education and entertainment and healthy growing."
