Have women employees as the support staff and bus drivers/conductors in schools and screen educational films on child sexual abuse, suggested union minister Maneka Gandhi.
 
Gandhi spoke to union HRD minister Prakash Javadekar and called for popularising POCSO e-Box and Childline 1098 through NCERT publications and having strict norms for employing the support staff.
 
The ministries of Women and Child Development and Human Resource Development will hold a meeting tomorrow on safety and protection of children in schools. The meeting takes place following the murder of a class 2 student at a Gurgaon school.
 
The ministry of women and child development has already started its outreach campaign for protection of children through electronic as well as social media.
 
Gandhi said that the basic objective of the meeting of the two ministries is to develop a set of guidelines and protocols which schools must follow so that the children remain protected from any kind of abuse or physical/ mental harm.
 
The WCD Minister further stated that the parents, guardians and teachers should remain vigilant about the children as well as their behavior and any suspected situation should be reported immediately on the Childline No.1098 and the POCSO e-Box.
