Shri Dattatraya said that due to Covid-19 pandemic, children have to face many problems for the last two years. “Children were deprived of various activities being carried out in the District Child Welfare Centre. It is the responsibility of all employees of HSCWC to implement all programmes effectively for their physical, mental and educational development,” said Shri Dattatraya.
The Governor said that under the learning facility at Bal Bhawans, Mini Bal Bhawans in the State, children should be developed according to their interests by enhancing their skills and activities related to pre-training. There is also a need to increase their rehabilitation and counselling activities.
He said that children’s talent can be further honed by providing them with a good library facility, craft centre, coaching classes on Sundays and regular classes for the children at Bal Bhawans on a regular basis to bridge the gap caused by Covid-19. “If we can fully develop the future generation of the country, then surely India will become stronger and more developed,” he said.
The Governor also gave instructions regarding keeping cleanliness, maintaining filing and keeping other details updated. Shri Dattatraya said that lack of funds would not be allowed to be a hurdle in the matter of development of children. All round development of children will be ensured with the cooperation of the State government, said Shri Dattatraya.
