                                    St. Columbus School
Rotary Club – Seminar on “Child Mortality”
Child mortality, also known as under-5 mortality, refers to the death of infants and children under the age of five. In 2011, 6.9 million children under five died, down from 7.6 million in 2010, 8.1 million in 2009 and 12.4 million in 1990
Child Mortality Rate is the highest in low-income countries, such as most countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. A child's death is emotionally and physically damaging for the mourning parents. Many deaths in the third world go unnoticed since many poor families cannot afford to register their babies in the government registry.

Four students of Interact Club of our School attended the seminar - Himani Kapoor (President), Akanksha Arya (Vice President), Kaushal Nagpal (Secretary) and Rajeev Chaturvedi (Interactor). It was as per them was a very inspiring and motivating seminar on a very sensitive issue – “CHILD MORTALITY”.
             All the speakers were able to connect with the audience and spreading the concern regarding the situation. Overall the seminar was great and really helped in creating awareness about this increasing problem.
