Kolkata: Child in Need Institute (CINI) celebrated its 50th Foundation Day and its ‘Commitment to the Children and Communities’. To uphold the concept of ‘Child Friendly Communities’ and to encourage child participation, 4 boys and girls from 4 states of India chaired as the ‘Chief Guest’ of the programme.
Capturing 50 Years of dedicated initiatives and journey of the Organization, CINI also released a Book titled ‘Tomorrow is too late’ on the occasion. The book presents the remarkable journey of half a century of partnering vulnerable children and communities, government institutions, service providers and other actors to help turn child rights into development practice.
Sujoy Roy, National Advocacy Officer, CINI said, “For nearly half a century, CINI has been at the forefront of efforts to uplift vulnerable children in rural and urban communities across India. Our unwavering mission encompasses ensuring that children and adolescents have unfettered access to essential services and entitlements, including health, nutrition, education, protection, participation, and a safe living environment.”
The CINI Support Group Members from all over the world also shared their experience and association with CINI. Historical photographs and an audio-visual documentation related to CINI’s 5 decades journey were exhibited during the program.
