An online course in child protection aimed at capacity enhancement of stakeholders and widening of horizons of those working in the field, with the help of information technology, was launched in Jodhpur. The course module was evolved with the help of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

The Centre for Child Protection in Sardar Patel University of Police, Security and Criminal Justice has launched the course in collaboration with the UNICEF. Inaugurating the course, University Vice-Chancellor Bhupendra Singh said it would be offered free of cost to everyone interested in promotion of child rights.

Dr. Singh said the trainees, living anywhere in the world, would be able to interact with the teachers as well as other students on different aspects of child protection on a discussion board uploaded at the web portal of the course.

“The course will be especially helpful for the police officers who are unable to attend regular classes due to paucity of time and work pressure,” said Dr. Singh. It would be available on all electronic gadgets such as mobile phones, laptop computers and tabs.

The Vice-Chancellor said children up to the age of 18 years comprised 43.6 per cent of the population in Rajasthan.

Since India was a signatory to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the course would strengthen the country’s commitment to children’s welfare and protection of their rights, he added.
