A Teacher’s Handbook To Child Protection

Teachers play a major role in ensuring that children grow up with safety and dignity in a protective and nurturing environment.  The following guidebook by UNICEF and Ministry of Women and Children Development, India intends to make you as a teacher aware of the spectrum of issues that are being faced by children in our neighborhood and across the country – from child labour to sexual abuse to corporal punishment to caste discrimination etc. The handbook also spells out practical steps that you can take to safeguard children.
