Right to Play
The charter on children’s Right to Play has been developed by concerned members of the civil society to promote children’s “Rights to Play”. It sets out a vision for sports and play, aims to be a catalyst for individuals and organisations to examine, review and improve their provision for children and young people’s play and informal recreation.
With the aim to emphasize and highlight Children’s “Right to Play” CINI for the last 5 years has initiated an event of joyful and unrestricted play for half a day on a winter weekend. The event gives the children an opportunity of free mixing cutting across the barrier of class, caste, and religion. This year the Right to Play event was celebrated on 10th January, 2015, at Rani Rasmoni Road at Dharmatala. Close to 1000 children from slums, streets, red light areas and mainstream schools took part in this event in this year. The day was celebrated with games and fun-filled activities. The children played our forgotten street games like guli danda, bicycle wheels as also participated in Bratachari and music and dance. Elite school children from Loreto, Our Lady of Providence, St. James, Mahadevi Birla Girls school, Assembly of God Church and few other schools also took part in this event. Many eminent guests were present there to grace the event and enjoyed playing with the children.
