WHAT CHANGED

Pardarshita formed in the year 2005, is known for setting up of resource centers in low-income areas and enabling education for children from low-income families. The main aim of the organization is to advocate for better education system and proper functioning Public Distribution Systems (PDS). They are using Right to Information (RTI) as a strategic tool in spearheading Right to Education (RTE) campaigns. The organization has undertaken meetings with State Secretaries to present ground realities, organized signature campaigns and media advocacy to increase awareness on RTE.

Pardarshita is also mobilizing community based organization (CBOs) on implementation of Articles as laid down in the National Convention on Right of Child (NCRC). Furthermore, the CRY partner is involved in taking up issues of admission of disabled and other children who were denied admission in the formal schools earlier. It has plans to incorporate the issue of Early Child Care Education being provided by Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) along with Right to Education Campaign.
