Advocacy Initiatives on Child Malnutrition, Right to Education and Child Protection

With the overwhelming response of the social audit process of Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) and with support from the CSNCR, Plan India has facilitated the social audit pilot phase. This campaign has institutionalised the social audit for ICDS and has been adopted by the government. The process led to the formation of anganwadi level monitoring committees for reviewing the services of AWCs. As an impact, the enrolment of beneficiaries at the AWC level has increased by 12-15%.

The network has been capacitated with aspects of child rights and how Panchayats can be strengthened to improve the status of child protection and child development at that level.

With the support of district administration, the West Singbhum birth registration campaign was organised for all the 18 blocks in the district. AWWs, school teachers, Panchayat sewaks, Auxiliary Nursing and Midwiferies (ANMs) and other officials have oriented about the birth registration and what are the roles of each level of officials in issuing birth certificate. Through this campaign, the backlog of registration has been initiated and till date 1,200 certificates have been issued.

Through our advocacy efforts, we have capacitated the Bal Sansad members and SMC representatives on their roles of effective functioning of schools in order to improve quality education. This capacity building initiative established a relationship between the SMC and Bal Sansad. In all, 72 SMC representatives and 114 Bal Sansad representatives participated in this activity.
