The Goa State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (GSCPCR) will launch its official website on Wednesday at the State Secretariat, Porvorim near here.

The website will have an innovative online complaint and grievance registration facility. It was launched in view of the urgent need to create awareness among the stakeholders on issue of child abuse in Goa, said GSCPCR Chairperson Samira Kazi on Tuesday.

“The Commission had observed that there is an increase in the reporting of child abuse cases to the Police and before the Commission and hence there is a need to develop support mechanism to assist victims and family members,” said Ms. Kazi.

The website will provide a lot of information related to child rights to all stakeholders.

“We are committed to make Goa a child-friendly and child-safe State,” said Ms. Kazi.
