WHAT CHANGED

Wide Angle (Social Development Organization) Manipur was registered in 1984 and started working with a vision for creating productive youth by collectively enhancing health, human rights and gender equality. It has an association with CRY since 2005. There is high degree of vulnerability of children in the age group of 12 – 18 years to sexual abuse, substance abuse, trafficking and child labour and the children in this age group have the highest number of school dropouts across the villages in the intervention area. Wide Angle has been efficiently intervening in the critical districts of Manipur. It is committed on child right issues and has in-depth understanding on child rights with a holistic approach. Over the years with its expertise, Wide Angle has brought about significant changes in the lives of children affected with HIV/AIDS.
