Child rights baseline 2009. To support the realizing child rights thematic programme plan 2008-2011

The Realizingn Child Rights (RCR) Thematic Programme Plan (TPP) is a relatively new TPP at Save the Children that is designed to strengthen civil society participation in attaining children’s rights through strengthening adults and children’s child rights networks, and strengthening the capacity of duty bearers, most importantly the State, to deliver on their obligations towards the rights entitlements of children.
The primary objective of this study is to provide pre-programme (baseline) values for outcome indicators of Objective 3 of the RCR TPP. This indicator refers to enhancing the networking and advocacy capacities of marginalized children’s groups. The baseline also provides data on current values for the impact indicator of attainments in child rights which refers to the goal of the RCR TPP.
The baseline was conducted in six districts where Save the Children, Child Rights Core Group members and the Child Rights Advocacy Network (CRAN) intend establishing Children’s Child Rights Networks. The sample consisted of 600 children and 75 adult stakeholders from state agencies and community groups from village to district level.
The biases of the sample are that the locations comprise the most marginalized communities in Sri Lanka, and are, by virtue of this fact, where considerable nongovernmental intervention is visible. In this sense, the sample reflects programme locations of most core members whose mandate is to work with most marginalized communities. Therefore, the data does not represent Sri Lanka as a whole, but is
valuable in its ability to elaborate on the condition of most marginalized groups.
