Mogga addresses and promotes Ecological Rights of Children. The concept of ecological child rights is developed around ideas of right to good life, right to ecological inheritance and right to information.
Small groups / associations (sanghams) of children are formed, which are federated at mandal level. 45 such children’s associations have been formed todate, where children meet and discuss issues which they are concerned about. The three mandal Samakhyas (federations of sanghas) of children are further federated into an apex body called ‘Mogga Samakhya’.
Through this forum, attempts are made to reach out to all the members with a strong intent that every child be made aware of her/his rights enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
The children also participate in a variety of eco-restoration and conservation activities. They are also exposed to good practices of organic farming. Towards this, the sanghams identified suitable plots of land in their villages, got permission from their elders and initiated their own organic vegetable gardens.
Children’s spaces in the villages have also been developed with each unit having a small library, equipment and materials for science experiments and environment camps as well as gardening and play materials.
The children’s sanghams currently have 2,062 members in the age group of 10 to 14 including 986 girls.
