PROJECT NAME: Protect & Support 2,000 Children in Orissa, India

PROJECT LOCATION: Bolangir District, Orissa, India


International Childcare Trust has working in partnership with Adhar, a grassroots NGO based in Orissa, India, since 2011, supporting Protect & Support 2,000 Children in Orissa, India.

This project aims to protect vulnerable children from risk of abuse and exploitation and reduce incidences of infant mortality, malnutrition and child hunger by mobilizing support from the government and the local community, through:

(1)   Increased protection of vulnerable children from abuse, exploitation and harm through community-based safety nets including rights awareness and family reintegration leading to better safeguarding of children;

(2)   Increased access of families and children to available government health entitlements through effective community monitoring and advocacy leading to reduced incidence of infant mortality, malnutrition and child hunger.

Although the full amount of money required to run this project has not yet been secured, the small amount which has been raised so far will be put towards establishing one of the proposed five Community Childcare Centres (CCCs). Located in five different areas of Bolangir district, these centres aim to protect 350 vulnerable children in total before their effective reintegration into families and communities. They will be run by management committees, composed of community members and women’s self-help groups. Community members will be trained on child protection and will form child protection committees in each of the CCCs.

Vulnerable children identified through Adhar’s dedicated outreach team will be provided with temporary shelter and protection at the centres before they are reintegrated with their families or if reintegration is not a viable option, alternate living solutions will be identified. Once reintegrated, children will be mainstreamed into schools or provided with vocational training as per their age, interests and preferences.

We are extremely excited to at last get this project off the ground! Stay tuned for updates!!
