Numerous activities were organized across the globe to mark this day. The realization of felt need and the shreds of evidence based on the applied practices, CWCN came up with an idea that the Young people need more role-model to fully realize their capacities. Hence, CWCN decided to conduct an event where children and youths were allowed to spend a day with an inspiring public figure. The event entitled “let’s get motivated with Raman Nepali” was held at the head-office, Nayapati.
The day motivational session was dedicated to inspiring the young state of mind to start quality imaginations. Mr. Raman started the session with the quotation “Yes I Can” and the children, youths, staffs and the volunteer were given an opportunity to realize the potential, talents, and the creativity as a source they truly have. He also demonstrated how young people can make effective application of these sources for a constructive engagement in the society. The session was followed by the audio-video session, meditation, success stories, group work, creative thinking and the physical exercises. The children, youths, and the staffs had a quality time and the positive impact of it is visible in terms of actions and behavior.
Mr. Raman Nepali is a motivational speaker and a trainer who has established himself as an inspiring youth figure and had almost reached and inspired 100 thousand diverse national/international individuals and groups.

‘The Child Guard’ is a campaign that CPCR has been introduced since January 2016 by inviting a general public to voluntarily providing a safeguarding for children. The program also aims to develop child rearing skills and basic children rights according to UNCRC. After the program has been launched, it received a positive feedback from many sectors and set a wake up call to build a caring society for children. To emphasize the program objective, July 9th, CPCR conducts an event of ‘Assembling the Child Guard: You Can Do It’ at Esplanade Cineplex Ngamwongwan Khae-rai by inviting many partners and volunteers who have the same goal. For example, Child Safety Promotion and Injury Prevention Research Center, Ramathibodi Hospital, conducts a ‘Road Safety for Children Workshop’. Many volunteers make DIY teaching tools such as English alphabets game box and delivery to children from 10 Child Protection Communities both in Bangkok and regional areas. There is also a seminar by CPCR President, CPCR Executive Director and representatives from Ramathibodi Hospital and Ministry of Public Health who acknowledge the idea of ‘the Child Guard’. There are many famous people such TV spokespersons and celebrities also share their experiences of how to be the Child Guard. The event ends with a unique closing ceremony – Planting the Child Guard Seeds. CPCR now wakes up the spirit of the Child Guard inside everyone because CPCR believes that everyone can be ‘the Child Guard’.
June 18th, CPCR conducts a workshop for selected teachers from Child Protection Schools in Chiangmai Province. ‘The Teacher Classroom’ is a program that CPCR Child & Family Development Unit develops for teachers to gain more confident and be able to delivery an effective teaching method to their students. Last year, CPCR has introduced ‘the Positive Discipline’ to Child Protection School Program. This technique has gained a positive feedback from many teachers. However, some teachers believe that this method would be able to change student’s behavior completely. Since some students still act with the same manner, some teachers has gave up and gone back to use the old technique – such as punishing students by using a stick – to control their classrooms. CPCR believes that using ‘the Positive Discipline’ will be beneficial for students and teachers. ‘The Teacher Classroom’ would train teachers to build a good environment in the school.
In rural areas of Cambodia, knowledge of hygiene, health, prevention of diseases and the appropriate usage of drugs are limited. People do not follow the doctor’s prescriptions or medicines but simply buy it at the grocery store in their village. This is all due to a lack of information and the neglect of health and hygiene education in the community.
Bandos Komar conducted campaigns and raised awareness through training organized twice a year by children’s councils to make parents understand the importance of hygiene and health and to improve health of children and their families. Many messages of hygiene, water, health and prevention of certain diseases caused by the contamination, feces and mosquitoes, etc. were broadcasted to community by children council. The messages were delivered in the form of parent-child questionnaires and attractive posters so that the community could easily understand and remember them.
