Butterflies

Building a community-level child protection system

India
2015 - 2018

Butterflies was established in India in 1989 to protect and empower the most marginalised and economically vulnerable children, in particular street and working children. At the core of their approach is a belief that children’s voices have to be listened to seriously. Children’s participation in decision making processes is central to Butterflies’ work ethos. HDF’s grant supports the establishment of a community-level child protection system in five communities in Delhi through the formation of Children’s Development Centres, Child Social Protection Committees and Child Rights Clubs.
