Secy NFCH reviews implementation of rehabilitation of militancy affected children scheme

The Secretary of National Foundation for Communal Harmony, Government of India, Manoj Pant held a meeting to review the implementation of a programme for assistance to militancy affected children for their rehabilitation, career and skill development counseling at Srinagar yesterday.

During the meeting, the Secretary said that the organization is providing financial assistance to the children of age below twenty five years and belonging to the family with income less than two lakh per annum affected by militancy and communalism.
He said that there are 1771 children eligible to avail the assistance from NFCH.

However, he said that more than fifty percent of the eligible children from J&K are missing from the enrolment list and enjoined upon DCs and DSWOs to conduct surveys and identify the eligible children. He said these children are vulnerable and need to be taken care of and properly guided. He also asked DCs and DSWOs to identify those victim children who are pursuing different professions so that they can be felicitated and presented as role models for those affected children who are still obtaining education.

Mr. Pant asked DSWOs to open Aadhar linked bank accounts of victim children so the amount of financial assistance shall be directly transferred to them. He said they are organizing several programmes for the children in different states and national capital for their career counseling and skill development and asked officers to select five students both boys and girls. During the programmes, these children will also meet top dignitaries including President, Vice President, Prime Minister, Home Minister and others.
