Samriddhi Roopwas Bharatpur
It is one of the earliest area development programmes implemented by the Kendra. This intervention was a follow up of the research study on prostitution conducted by the Kendra. Roopwas tehsil was identified as a source area of prostitution.
Two key interventions implemented here include the school Samriddhi Bal Vidya Mandir Madhyamik Vidyalaya and the community engagement focussing on Rights of the Children living in Difficult Circumstances implemented across 40 villages surrounding Roopwas tehsil.
The outreach activities cover 40 villages with around 8000 population and focus on women, adolescent, children and youth particularly from the Scheduled and excluded community of the area.
The activities focus on protecting the children especially Girls from all forms of exploitation, violence, abuse and neglect.
Awareness and community campaigns are organized for information sharing and dissemination of knowledge for improving well being of children, specially the girl children. Child protection forums have been set up at village level to prevent and take action on incidences of violence and abuse towards children.
Over the years, there has been significant improvement and behavioral change in child care practices within families resulting in more number of children attending school and demonstrating better health outcomes.
