PROJECT NAME: Protect 1,500 children in Orissa, India from abusePROJECT LOCATION: Bolangir District, Orissa, IndiaPROJECT PARTNER: Adhar
This important project has so far enrolled 35 children in the Community Childcare Centre; linked 10 children, aged 0-6, to the Integrated Child Development Services, a government scheme that provides supplementary nutrition, immunization, health check-up, referral services, pre-school non-formal education, and nutrition & health education; and enrolled 12 children in primary school.
Adhar has so far established one of the five proposed Community Care Centres (CCCs), which will serve as a pilot for the remaining four CCCs. The CCCs are meant to be multi-purpose, community run centres, which provide support to vulnerable children. The centres will serve as day care centres for young children, drop-in centres for older children, particularly those living and working on the streets, and crisis intervention centres, which provide support to children and families at critical times e.g. domestic violence, child abuse and family breakdown.
The CCCs aim to ensure protective mechanisms are available to safeguard vulnerable children from neglect, abuse and exploitation. The future paths of children supported by the centres will vary widely and may include returning to school, recovering from trauma, learning vocational skills, gaining employment, starting a business, or reuniting with their families. The centres will support them towards their chosen future.
