Putting Child Sensitive Social Protection into Practice in Dungarpur, India

Child Sensitive Social Protection (CSSP) is a Save the Children initiative in South Asia aiming to reduce vulnerability and poverty of children by ensuring that social protection measures lead to meaningful investment in children. Currently the programme is being implemented in Bangladesh, India and Nepal.

The CSSP project in Dungarpur, India, is based on a set of interventions that are closely interlinked to achieve the project objectives:

  • Reduce child labour and increase school attendance and retention;
  • Improve care for orphans and other vulnerable children; and
  • Reduce malnutrition

The CSSP project was initiated in Dungarpur in 2011. It is based on the understanding that many of the vulnerabilities faced by poor children can be curbed by improving access to and delivery of social protection programmes for children and their households, while simultaneously working towards enhancing sensitivity towards children’s needs and rights among parents and other adults responsible for children’s well-being.
