We believe that it is only through creating awarenss we can ensure EVERY RIGHT FOR EVERY CHILD. We at CRT try to create awareness among individuals through Trainings and Workshops
Workshops and Training Programmes
CRT conducts a wide range of workshops and training programmes from brief one-hour and half-day orientations to three-day workshops. These include a comprehensive coverage of all aspects of child rights and emerging child protection issues designed for officials of various government departments, NGOs, teachers, lawyers, colleges and students of social work, police, railway police, children and parents.
Training of Trainers
Training of trainers is one of CRT’s ultimate objectives in order to extend training outreach on Child Rights widely and rapidly. Along with Child Rights we also train individuals on POCSO, RTE, JJ, NPC, CMPA, Anti trafficking, Child Labour (Regulation and Prohibition act) etc.
Disability and Child Rights
Along with organisations targeting child disability rehabilitation, CRT also did workshops and training courses for youth activists aligned with APD, ADD and other organizations who work in the field of disability development and child rights, self-development, communications and disabilities issues.
Theatre – both street plays and proscenium plays – are used as a means to reach out to the trainees and the masses, thus initiating discussions on the infrastructure and services available, and the need for taking care of children from the rights perspective.
The activity has reached out to about 60 youths directly and more than 5000 villagers. The experience has been very enriching for both CRT as well as the trainees.

Every now and then we see a tale on violation of Child rights in media. A keen surveillance reveals that, lack of respect towards children and their rights or awareness on laws pertaining to Children among the Public is the reason behind radical increase in violation of Child Rights. Hence we sense that, there is a need for sensitization on Children, Child Rights and Laws among all of us.
To keep our children safe, these days Govt is coming up with new laws, policy, acts, and discussions pertaining to children. Complimentary to this, to disseminate child related issues to public, Govt is also organizing various programmes at state, Districts, taluks and at Panchayat levels. But there is huge dearth of Resource people to disseminate the information, train people or to conduct research on Child related issues.
On the other hand, we perceive that individuals working for children or with the children also lack knowledge about Child Rights and allied issues; this could be because of lack of training. Most of the time social workers though interested to get the training on Child Rights for many organizations/ NGOs training staff is a costly affair. To meet the dearth of resource persons and also to train individuals, students, NGO personnel in the state CRT has come up with Training series called From Concept to Realisation. We are offer two days Residential training in an affordable price on Child Rights and allied issues like
