The projects provided a combination of community-based child protection mechanisms, quality formal education, accelerated learning programmes (ALP)/special training programmes (STP), vocational and life skills training, cotton field-related health interventions and linking with various social security schemes to target vulnerable families. Children in the age group of 3-6 years (pre-primary school), 6-14 years (primary school age) and 15-18 years (adolescent) age groups were targeted under group-specific interventions. The projects also strengthened civil society networks to strengthen implementation of the Child Labour Prevention and Regulation Act (CLPRA) whereas in Gujarat they had set up an inter-state migration network to improve monitoring and coordination mechanisms to reduce intra and inter-state migration.
In addition to this, the project also involved training of government officials to improve awareness on child rights and strengthen coordination mechanisms across departments.
