In December a training for Child Parliament members was organised by NISD in Sangamner. Rani presented the various problems of children in her village and also expressed some of difficulties that she experiences while working in Child Parliament.
In January, Rani also took part in a project organised by the government’s Integrated Child Development Project, which aims to reduce malnutrition among adolescent girls. Her mother took part in the training too and began to understand how good nutrition can counter this problem.
