Engaging With Taliban A Must To Support Afghan Children: Kailash Satyarthi

New Delhi: Nobel Laureate and newly-appointed advocate of Sustainable Goals Development by the United Nations, Kailash Satyarthi is strongly of the view that strife in Afganistan will have severe repercussions on Afghan children and it’s time for some concrete steps taking into confidence the ruling establishment – the Taliban regime.

“We have to consider that Afghan children are our children and collective, prompt and sustainable efforts should be made to ensure education, healthcare and protection of those children. That is not possible without engaging the ruling groups,” Satyarthi told ANI.

“Children have never been responsible for wars insurgencies, violence and poverty, yet they’re the worst sufferers of problems we create. Afghanistan is one example. Afghani children are going to suffer the most if we don’t take concrete action now,” Satyarthi added.

The Nobel Prize for peace winner added that children should be given a share in budgetary allocations. “It is my mission, not only in General Assembly, but also in future, that children must be given priority. They must get their fair share in budget reallocation, overseas development assistance, social protection programmes,” he said.

And Satyarthi elaborated, “It’s unfortunate that most marginalised children and their issues have not been put in priority in global political, social and economic agenda. They have to be given fullest opportunities to grow and to be educated.”
