- Bal Panchayat/ Leadership
- Child Banking
- Child Education
Bal Panchayat (children’s parliament) is an idea to bring the children together to strengthen their voice and leadership, to provide a platform where they can reach the duty bearer and change-agents in order to prompt their attention towards issues which affect children directly or indirectly. The motive behind forming and facilitating Bal panchayat is to promote the right of participation so that children can speak the unspoken and their unheard voices may be heard.
The Sahyog care for you runs Remedial education centres for children living in slums where children are provided with education. However, Sahyog believes that education, though important, is not enough to help the children concerned, and hence has created Bal Panchayats. Sahyog has 5 groups with 54 children in different slum areas of Delhi. In these Bal Panchayats, children practice the right of participation by expressing their view on issues that affect them and by making plans on how to go about resolving these issues.
Not only the children of Remedial but also children from formal schools and from within the locality are encouraged to form a part of the Bal Panchayats where they can present relevant issues before their teachers, family and community.
All the children from the Remedial education centres and locality are brought together and they are explained to about the importance and benefit of being united. Following this, the children who want to participate in the Bal panchayat come together in a meeting where the name of Bal panchayat is decided by the children and the children are informed about the working core group. The children decide how many will be in the working core group and the members of the working core group is decided by election. Children who want to become part of the committee address the Bal panchayat and explain how they are suitable candidate, election is done under the supervision of an adult representative of Sahyog.to form a Bal Panchayat in schools, permission is sought from the school authority.
Every Bal panchayat is oriented on leadership, team work, unity and is sensitized on issues related to them and other social issues. A monthly Bal panchayat meeting is organized by Sahyog on the date decided by the Bal Panchayat. All the Bal panchayats of different localities are brought together and a district Bal Panchayat and working core group are formed by election. The district Bal panchayat conducts quarterly meetings.
In the meeting of the Bal panchayat, members discuss about the issues they are facing in their area and then they discuss how these can be addressed. They also seek suggestions from members as well as from the adult facilitator present in the meeting. After discussions they prepare an action plan for the same and in further meetings they plan for follow up.
During events such as World Day against Child Labor, National Anti Child Labor Day, World Environment Day and others; Bal panchayat organize rallies, human chain etc. to spread awareness about relevant issues. For example, on World Environment Day, Bal panchayat organized tree planting, they also participated in different Campaign which has helped in increasing the coverage of campaign.
