Artist(s): Syed Umair Qadri Organization: Youth Parliament of J&K Description: Twenty years of violence have deprived many children in J&K of their basic human rights: the security of a home, attending school regularly, and the joys and comforts of family. Children constitute about 38% of J&K’s population but life for thousands of them has been a constant battle for survival, especially in the militant affected areas of Doda, Uri, Kupwara, Rajouri, Poonch and Sopore. Of these children, 5-6% are orphans, destitute or neglected children, who do not have their basic needs fulfilled in the present turmoil.
