Villages across 14 States/UTs have been indentified on the basis of work done in the field of health, education, protection and participation of children to become Child Friendly Villages as per indictors developed by NCPCR. The objective of Child friendly village is (i) to develop parameters of a child friendly village through consultation with specialized UN agencies including UNICEF and other NGOs. (ii)To formulate child friendly model at Panchayat level as a pilot initiative to achieve child friendly village. (iii)To ensure child participation and choices in matters and decisions affecting their lives.(iv)To document the experience for scaling up and replication.
A digitized monitoring tool needs to be developed for effective monitoring of Child Friendly villages across States/UTs currently on pilot basis. This tool should be developed in such a manner so as to scale it to all States eventually.
