Click Rights- Using passion of photography for building a Child Rights Movement
The power of photography in bringing about policy level changes has borne its evidence in history. Lewis Hine, an American photographer documented child labour in America for several years (1908-1912) to depict the gross exploitation and child rights violation such children were subject to. His series of photographs capturing reality were able to build policy level pressure and ultimately the child labour policy was drafted in US.
Click Rights Volunteers in East India are students, IT professionals, bankers, journalists, lawyers, film makers, and people from different segments of lives who believe their photography can bring about a change.
They capture child rights issues through their camera lens and display them in various forms like mobile exhibitions, hold discussions, get more people on board, and build a public opinion on Child Rights!
