INTRODUCTION

In Western Orissa children’s vulnerability and exposure to violation of their protection rights are  multiple in nature .The manifestation of these violation are various ranging from child labour , child trafficking and many other forms of violation and abuse .Migration and trafficking of children continues to be a serious problem in this region. Acute poverty compels community to migrate. 45% of thepopulation of migration prone Belpada block go outside namely Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu  , Gujrat etc to earn their livelihood for 6-9 months. Government schemes and facilities reaches hardly to the people. In this year out of 1202  children (6-14 years) of Kapani Panchyat of Belpara  Block ,458 children has migrated to brick kiln with their parents,relatives.131 children  are staying at villages with their relatives(survey and micro planning database YCDA February, 2011)  . Children who have migrated or are staying with relative somehow deprived of their basic rights like education, health as well children staying in village without love and affection of parents just to fulfill their dream of continuing study .Children are tortured mentally and physically and starts their life as a child labour from very childhood .We hardly expects that the children will get an opportunity of living a decent life .

Major thrust of this programme is to address Child protection issues at village level through Community level leaders and provide need based Support to orphan and vulnerable children.

Case Study

Rasmita Rekindled the Hopes
A mentally challenged father, a run away mother & death of grand parents after prolonged illness etc are all the ingredients that contributed to the cause of “drop out from school recipe” for Rashmita. This Nine Year old girl was severely beaten by her father who lived in Kapani Panchyat of Bolangir district. Extreme poverty compelled to think of survivial first & education later. She started her education late & the chain of education broke by the time she was promoted to class 2.
YCDA in collaboration of CORDAID started to implement integrated child protection project with an object to ensure the child rights and child protection. With regular family counseling, individual care planning, various need base supports provided by the community and the child protection committee promoted under the project along with the local teacher, other children of the village encouraged Rasmita to rejoin formal education.
Now, Rasmita is in class three & this mainstreaming effort has rekindled the hope in Rasmita to achieve greater things in life.
