Instead of waiting a conflict situation to go out of control, it is the duty of the civilians and government of each country to nip the conflict problems at the root level itself without allowing it to flare up was the observation made by the participants. Civil society organizations have to play a vital role to bring harmony among conflicting countries by influencing governments. The participants observed that civil society can foster peace and establish friendly ties and bi-lateral relationships. International meeting on MDG’S and children protection held at Cochin Ms. Pasty George, renowned social activist and winner of the “Order of Canada” in her key note address said, children are losing their childhood because of parental pressure and exploitation by unscrupulous elders. In the rat race of achieving high marks in examinations children are nowadays being forced to attend tuition classes in addition to spending the whole day in school. This is mistreatment of children. With support for public education eroding, education has become big business. Students have to pay hefty donations to get admission to educational institutions. Inappropriate sex education in Kerala and other states has led to children having problems in dealing with their sexuality in their growing stage. 90% of people who molest or rape children are known to them. This may even lead the child to commit suicide. But a culture of silence prevails in Indian society. The victim must know they are not in fault for the predatory behavior of some people. This attitude will go a long way to protect the child from abuses. The content of this Regional Newsletter may be freely reproduced or cited provided the source is acknowledged.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
