Community Work

Community is the base of all social work that IPER is doing. In the early years when IPER was working with children especially child workers, street children it was felt that the services that are organized in IPER with the children often do not get fully utilised as the communities and the families are not involved.
With this learning since last three decades the work of IPER has assumed a much larger area namely the family and the community that the children live in.
IPER has taken up community mobilisation in partnership with the Municipal bodies in maintaining infrastructure built in the community like toilets, garbage disposal system through behaviour change and training of the users.
With the CHILDLINE Project of IPER community campaigns are done on such social issues like child marriage, child labour, protection of children, rights of children. drug addiction, disability.
IPER also initiated a programme with training from British Council titled as Active Citizen to build a team of Volunteers as Active Citizens who would work as active members of the community to bring about changes according to the felt needs of the community people.
