"We saw that the orphanage, where only 20 children live, is, of course, in a very difficult situation. And although we did not find any signs of abuse on the part of the administration, it is obvious that children should not be brought up in such conditions," he said. head of the HRC. According to him, there is not enough childcare there.
“The fact is that the management of this orphanage simply does not manage to establish a comfortable life for the children. We saw that there is also a violation of sanitary and hygienic rules, although the employees of the orphanage are trying to take care of the children in the orphanage. But, unfortunately, it does not work out very well , - added the interlocutor of the agency.

“And I am convinced that human rights should be a red thread of the entire school curriculum from the first grade to the last. Because a child in his future adult life may or may not face the need for knowledge in the field of, for example, astronomy. But knowledge in the field of human rights he will definitely need, because it concerns everyone, the head of the HRC emphasized.
He also talked about visiting a school for children with deviant behavior, where children who have committed crimes are under the decision of the courts.
