CAWM has started a discussion topic in the Facebook Group (Child Abuse Watch Maldives) to muster volunteers for a possible initiative to engage at the local community level for the rights of children. The proposed objective is to create an caring environment in the local communities for children. The CRAG Initiative is a response from CAWM to suggestions by members to move to the next level; from being a cyber lobby to a meaningful advocacy and action group at the local community level.
We would like to call upon those who are interested to register your intention and interest to participate as a volunteer / member in your local community in starting a Children’s Rights Action Group. You can also support the effort by giving your contribution to the development of the CRAG concept.
CAWM is an online community solely for the purpose of creating a platform for concerned persons in the virtual world. Yet, it is a fact that child abuse is an everyday occurance in the Maldives, and action is needed to combat the issue at the grassroot level. CRAG will hopefully provide that platform.
