Over the years a number of laws and policies related to child protection have been made or amended to protect the children of our country. However, implementation of child protection laws remains a challenge for various reasons — lack of clear understanding, poor capacity and awareness among both the implementers and the beneficiaries and more. As a result, many laws remain on papers, funds in various schemes remain unspent, and many children are still subjected to child labour, trafficking, child sexual exploitation and other forms of abuse and exploitation on a daily basis.

The Training and Capacity Building Division of the KSCF Global Policy Institute for Children aims to address the lacuna through conducting training and capacity building workshops across the country, to strengthen the law implementation mechanism and generate awareness among citizens which will lead to proper protection and care of the children.

Knowledge and skills are imparted at national, state, district and village level through innovative, practical, hands-on training sessions on child protection laws, policies and programmes.

We also develop comprehensive and easy-to-understand learning resource material on child rights and child protection.
