The Concerned for Working Children
Children can make a real difference in their communities. This new manual on rights-based research from Concerned for Working Children (CWC) in Bangalore, India, shows how children can be empowered to influence their community and also local alcohol policies. The research manual is developed on the basis of activities conducted by children in Keradi in the Indian state of Karnataka. These children, with the support of adult facilitators, took all the necessary steps to influence the policy of their local government (Grama panchayat/ Grama sabha) and the social life of the village: Defining the problem they faced. Finding adequate working methods. Collecting local data. Compiling and analysing the data. Drawing conclusions. Advocacy towards adults and political leaders in the community. Getting tangible results.
