Child Participation is a process rather than an event, with varying degrees of involvement - from being consulted on a predetermined issue to children and youth choosing their agenda, making their own decisions and taking them forward.

SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION TO ENSURE FOOD SECURITY

RCPDS in partnership with BMZ (Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development, Government of Germany) and Kindernothilfe, Germany launched a new program to benefit at 8,860 families directly inclusive of roughly about 16,304 children from nine panchayats of Tiruchuli and Narikudi Blocks of Virudunagar District, Tamilnadu. The families earn their living either on their own land or on leased land in the form of peasant farming or as landless farmers working on other people’s land or as labourers in other economic sectors.  Key emphasis is laid on improving common property resources with appropriate localised management system focussed on single women/women headed households and dalits (especially landless agri labourers).  A special component of community based sanitation as well introduction of erosion toilets for individual households aiming to reduce incidence of sexual abuse on adolescent girls, incidence of snakebite and other hazards to the weaker section.  Bird’s eye view of the project ....
