CSC delivers regular workshops in order to help build our network members’ knowledge and capacity.
Topics are varied and have included child protection, fundraising, social media and advocacy depending on the needs of our network members.
Since 2012 CSC has been responsible for delivering two workshops a year – one in London, one in Delhi – to share learning from the Realising Rights project which supports children who live and work on the streets in Delhi and Agra. The project is funded by Comic Relief and is delivered in conjunction with CSC network members Chetna, an Indian based NGO and Hope for Children.
In 2012 the workshops explored the issue of juvenile justice. In May, the workshop in Delhi explored this issue specifically in the Indian context and in London in November the workshop explored the challenges of violence against street children from a global perspective, as well as successful programmes to counter violence.
In 2013 workshops were held to explore government support for street children. The London workshop in November focussed on ‘Strengthening government policies and programmes for street-connected children’ and speakers presented case studies of the situation in: India, Brazil, Tanzania, UK, Syria and Uganda. Highlights from the workshop are captured in this short film.
