Who Celebrates the World Day?
World Day of Prayer and Action in India: India Cares 2016
“India Cares 2016” was an event held for children between the ages of 9-15. The purpose of the
event was to encourage sharing, reflection, and action within the community.
The children told stories about their community and learned a useful mind/body self-defense
drill. This was followed by a discussion on the state of child protection services and tips from
experts on how to enforce and ensure child safety. Forms of effective citizen engagement were also discussed. Finally, the children led an interfaith prayer and a conversation with faith leaders about their responsibility to protect children.
