What is 'Desh Ka mentor' Program

Ground Report | New Delhi: What is 'Desh Ka mentor' Program; A child rights body has called for a halt to the Aam Aadmi Party's 'Desh Ke Mentor' scheme which 'connects children with unknown people'. The body has claimed that the scheme also 'exposes children to danger'.

The agency also added that "it will suspend this program until the problems are resolved." In response to the statement, AAP has said that 'hindering an innovative plan shows the superficiality of the BJP and its government machinery'.

Noting that the response mentions that the interaction between mentor and mentee is through phone calls, the lead child rights agency said: “It should be noted that crimes involving children can also be initiated through phone calls. For example, children are likely to be trafficked through phone calls. Is there any mechanism to prevent the origin of cybercrime and child trafficking?

“The response also features parents of enrolled trainees completing their consent forms to allow their child to join the program. Indeed, parental consent is an essential prerequisite for engaging children in such activities," the commission added.

The NCPCR said this, however, does not help prevent any abuse of violence against children, adding that the responsibility for preventing children from such situations lies with the department. The commission further said that parental consent cannot be used as a cushion in case of any adverse incident.
