When a child arrives in our world as a beautiful, precious new life to be celebrated, as much as we derive happiness from our perception that their future life will be a great success, that is not always the case.

Children are the future promise of any community, they are also the most vulnerable group.

Life is never completely fair or equitable for anyone. Thus, the primary goal of parents, relatives, teachers, religions and community organisations is to enable a child to develop confidence and self-esteem as they mature to handle life challenges.

All interactions, positive and negative, in a child’s environment have an enduring impact on their wellbeing.
