At the programme, 150 children from eight slum areas participated. Different performances were given by the children. They also recited poems on ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ and on cleanliness along with dance performances and street plays.

Information about “good touch and bad touch” was given by Wasim Iqbal, director of Aash. He also expressed his views on how to make Indore city “child-friendly”.

MP Shankar Lalwani, Child Welfare Committee president Pallavi Porwal, additional DCP Manisha Pathak Soni, assistant Labour commissioner Meghna Bhatt and senior social reformer Chinmay Mishra were present as special guests at the programme.
