14-Year-Old Naga Boy To Address the UN’s General Assembly
An Imphal NGO called the Big Sisters’ League Manipur has picked a 14-year-old boy alone to represent the entire north-eastern region at the 70th United Nation General Assembly (UNGA). 10 other children from the rest of the country have also been selected.
Konkham Lamjingkhomba, son of visually impaired Gangarani (who lost her husband in a firing incident few years ago), will be addressing the UNGA to shun violence, as violence affects lots of innocent children like him.
Local organisations have been helping his family over the years by providing rations, financial aid and free education for the two brothers.
Konkham Lamjingnganba is the lone representative from the entire northeastern region along with nine others from the rest of the country to speak at UNGA.
The organization works for prevention of sexual abuse and rehabilitation of the victims.
