Save the Children India
In the lead up to the 2019 General Elections, Save the Children India appeals to all the political parties to give significant attention to issues related to child health, education and protection, and thus ensure that children have a Safe, Healthy, and Happy childhood, enabling them to be engaged and productive citizens of the future.
Keeping children at the centre of the demands, Save the Children has looked at evidence on ground, key policies and implementation gaps to arrive at and propose recommendations that will ensure children survive, learn, and are protected from harm and abuse. In a parallel process across 10 states, children representing various social groups were consulted. This included children from different castes, tribes, gender and other vulnerable groups. The aim was to listen to, understand and include children’s voices and views on the India they want. The combined demands formulated by Save the Children and by children themselves will help influence and inform the political leaders and manifesto committees of various political parties.
