They started collecting the data as per state policy of taking guardianship of the children, shared Dharel. He further said some of the children lost many years ago were found abroad.
Dharel mentioned, “It is necessary to make national child protection system strong by expanding and strengthening child helpline service and child searching service.”
Though some local levels have allocated sufficient amount of budget in the sector of children, some others have not allocated, he said, adding it was necessary to form local child rights committee as per the Act relating to Children-2075.
Executive Director Dharel opined, “A children fund should be established by appointing child welfare officer at local level.”
Similarly, Joint-Secretary at the Ministry of Women, Children and Social Welfare, Shantiraj Prasain, shared that the Ministry had been holding discussion to appoint child psychologist at local level.
