Child Development Focus

Child protection & Development plays a central role in CDECS responses to children immediate need, but also continuing the organizational focus on long-term development. In Tonk district, where CDECS works under Integrated Village Planning with UNICEF established a visible program by training 760 village youth volunteers to conduct a birth registration campaign, promote Exclusive breast feeding, promote hand washing, consumption of iodized salt, promotion of ORS, Immunization & promoting institutional deliveries. Birth registration provides an official record, which will safeguard the child from infanticide, enable school enrollment and, in later years, help protect against forced early marriage. The focus on child protection is woven into the fabric of CDECS initiatives for child development. Whether in the initiatives for development CDECS works in a manner designed to support children who are among the most vulnerable in the world. One of a child’s fundamental prerogatives, brought to the forefront by CDECS, is the right to express his or her opinion freely. Youth in the project area both in rural and urban areas felt that they had something to say on issues affecting their education. In response, CDECS enabled schools to form children’s committees (Bal sansad), made up of elected class representatives. These representatives honed their leadership skills by meeting with fellow students, asking them to help identify problems at school and offering potential solutions. Among the issues were overcrowded classrooms, along with social problems.
