Challenge

The gap between funding, planning & execution of child rights projects in India is often due to field staff not being aware of child centric local & national laws, programs & procedures. They fail to provide effective case management or to lobby for children in need of care and protection. Children in difficulties have a right to be in the hands of better equipped social workers. Grassroots level NGOs need informed and trained field workers with updated knowledge & methods to help children.

Solution

CRT will equip 180 grassroot activists in 6 districts of Karnataka, India, with skills to reach out to 5000 children in difficult conditions. The participatory programmes conducted in the local language give updated information on child rights, laws, interventions, risks and procedures to protect children in tribal, rural and urban areas. They will empower the field staff with awareness on child rights & methods of enabling them thus creating an ecosystem that upholds child rights.

Long-Term Impact

NGOs with well informed and equipped field workers on Child Rights can be effective in protecting children in difficult conditions. They can deliver quality service without wasting precious resources and time. They can develop better networks with other service providers from communities, Government and corporates. Trained members also build self-learning and self-motivated teams with a synergy to uphold rights of children in rural, tribal and urban India by linking to better service providers.
