Towards Education and Ensuring Lasting Change for Children!!

CHILDREN WATCH was established and registered by child rights workers and grassroots women workers in 2006. Children Watch commits itself to ensure that all children especially marginalized children achieve thru their mobilization, education, expression of themselves, and active participation on the aspects that concern children, women and the larger society. It opted to work all over Tamil Nadu; however restricts itself to work in Kanchipuram and nearby districts around Chennai. Children Watch works with families of Irula Tribe, Dalits who face exploitation, and discrimination at the hands of age old caste system that exists for centuries.

We believe the following strategies to facilitate the development of the target families, they are;

• Mobilization of target families into groups
• Strengthening the office bearers’ knowledge, skills and competencies to enhanced their skills in facilitation & governance
• Educate the target communities on bring positive changes in the lives and livelihoods of them by working with the communities that keep the target families under exploitation.
• Sensitize the communities, families, individuals on gender perspectives, child friendlier practices, eco friendlier day to day practices and behaviour.
• Target families become agents of social reformation, and change to ensure that all are enjoying the fruits of development, inventions and the natural resources.

Our Beliefs:

Dalit and Tribe Communities: We believe that every member of the marginalised Dalit and Irula Tribe Community deserves to attain their basic Education and Human Rights

Children: We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to attain their rights, stay in school, continue their studies and move to other levels of education and to protect his or herself from all sorts of exploitations and abuses.
