OSC staff Chambuan Bariam spoke on ‘Every child is different’ as a resource person in the awareness programme.

Bariam pointed out that children and adolescents with disabilities can be vulnerable to violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect. The frequent 'institutionalization' of children with disabilities, denying them the right to grow up in a family environment, can further impact their full potential and can increase their vulnerability, she added.
