It is well established fact that school and disadvantaged children are most vulnerable in disasters. Giving the due importance to safety of the children, Saritsa Foundation has identified “Safety of Children” as one of the priority dimension to reduce risk from disaster and impacts of climate change since 2000. Saritsa Foundation has evolved ways and means with focused realities of strengths and challenges, which provide simple and analytical guidance to school and disadvantaged children in Rural and Urban area by reaching at their “Door Steps”.
Towards the above mission Saritsa Foundation conducted workshop for Naik Darshan Singh Mahaveer Chakra hostel inmates (school children) at Fatehgarh Cantonment Uttar Pradesh on 8 February 2013.
Education and training including practical skills imparted by the team members of Saritsa Foundation was an important aspect and focus for the children to develop safety awareness about disasters.
The warden stated that “methods of imparting such an education are very simple yet, effective. This techniques have helped children to learn to prepare themselves for disasters and help others”.
