The alliance MPLSSM has worked well in terms of taking on programs under joint leadership of a coordination committee which has met several times throughout the year by self initiative and drive. The idea of collective leadership within alliance has remained a unique feature and proved to be quite effective and efficient in driving alliance strategy in MP. The MPLSSM has also built up a good rapport and credibility with mass media, other network groups and alliances working in MP and shown its visibility as an emerging State alliance working on child issues. The alliance has been able to mobilize people, civil society groups and other stakeholders to take up Child Rights issues at the state level. In last few years, MPLSSM has been very successful in raising child education and related deaths issues at regional and state level and build pressure on government.
