Care and Share is pioneering
a new concept of children’s Parliament to ensure better
governance and child rights. Its purpose is to ensure children’s
participation in the development process through governance
structures, making them aware of their rights, motivating
them to fight against child rights violations, protecting
them from all forms of abuse and trafficking, ensuring the
enrollment of every child in the schools and preventing dropouts.
It also develops the leadership qualities of the children
which will give way for enlightened future citizens, having
social consciousness and responsibility. Presently we have
about 75 children’s parliament, each having 30-35 children
living in the neighbourhood. Care and Share is also part of
the Neighbourhood Community Network (NCN) movement which has
about 350 NGOs in TamilNadu.
