On December 19, 2022, the 'Mor Mayaru Guruji' program of Chhattisgarh State Commission for Protection of Child Rights was awarded silver SKOCH Award at the national level by The SKOCH Foundation at a program organized at India Habitat Center, New Delhi.
- The award was received by Women and Child Development Minister Anila Bhediya and Commission Chairperson Tejkunwar Netam.
- Chhattisgarh Housing Board and Forest Department Balod also received awards in this honor ceremony.
- Anila Bhediya said that this program has been started with the aim of making the teachers behave with the children after understanding the mentality of the children.
- It is noteworthy that the National SKOCH Award is a very prestigious honor which is received only after passing the step-by-step process of 7 steps. This award has been given for the innovation of 'Mor Mayaru Guruji' program in the field of child protection in the category of Women and Child Development.
- It is worth mentioning that through the 'Mor Mayaru Guruji' program of The Chhattisgarh State Commission for Protection of Child Rights, teachers are given training in an interesting way through sports and other activities to protect child rights.
- The Commission has so far trained about 2000 teachers at various district and state levels in this programme and plans to expand it to the district level in future.
- This program has been designed in an interesting way. Its duration has been kept only 2 to 3 hours, so that teachers can easily accept it.
- The Commission believes that the relationship between a teacher and a child lasts from 5 years to 12 years and in the meantime the personality of the teacher has a profound impact on the children. Keeping this in mind, all these topics have been included in the Mor Mayaru Guruji program, including child rights, what to emphasize and what shortcomings to be corrected while interacting with children and teaching.
