Poverty impacts the child in critical stages of life-span. Children face many risks, including exploitation, abuse, discrimination, violence, and neglect. Having among the lowest HDI status areas in the state, some very specific challenges and disproportionate impacts on children and adolescents, undermining their rights. The progress against basic indicators of child health (infant mortality, immunization status, and malnourishment), access to education, and protection has been dismal in the region. The factors contributing to this situation include inadequate access to services for the children like education, and lack of livelihood options for the adults. On the other hand, traditional values, norms, social practices, weak child protection mechanisms also contribute to the poor child rights situation in the region.
Given this, Meebha has been making efforts to device strategies and mechanisms to ensure an enabling environment for children so that they have an improved access to developmental opportunities. Our interventions are focused on ensuring that there is a favorable policy environment for children that exist at local, state and national level. Started with a small intervention to ensure access of primary education to the girl child, Meebha has now expanded its work around the core elements of child rights and child protection programme programming. From protecting the right to life of a girl child who is not even born to ensuring that children have a better access to developmental opportunities, Meebha has specific interventions. To reinforce these processes and to enable a better policy environment for children Meebha has joined hands with a number of state and national level networks working on the issue. Particularly, the issues of child protection need an immediate attention. Specific issues such as child labour in most hazardous processes including mining and brick kiln are being addressed.
