Bhartiya Jan Utthan Parishad (BJUP) aligning with Goal 5 of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) makes a difference in children’s lives in Bihar & Jharkhand through its child protection work. We believe that all children have the right to be protected from abuse, neglect, violence, and exploitation so that they can survive, learn, participate, play, and develop. Bhartiya Jan Utthan Parishad has been working in Child Protection for more than two decades. We aim and continue to provide children who are survived either without parental care, are living independently or are at the risk of losing parental care. We offer a value chain of standard services that go beyond childcare solely, but we also ensure a diversified sphere of child development. Our long-term care interventions appear like a basket of care solutions in which we attend children who are without parents but living with the nearest relatives; living with mother and father or not having either of the parents and not even with the nearest living but siblings are living alone. As this project heads to the holistic development, protection and nurturing of the child, it also covers child labour, which is often defined as work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential, and their dignity, and that is harmful to physical and mental development. BJUP has been able and consistently working to transform the lives of children who were bereft of basic amenities. By contrast, where children are protected, their health, education and well-being are improved as well as their ability to contribute to society as future citizens.

Some major achievements under Child Protection:
  • Enrolled more than 20000+ children (never enrolled/dropout/irregular) were mainstreamed with the school.
  • BJUP is working with 400 vulnerable children in 17 slums to create a conducive Child-friendly environment for children who need care and protection and child marriage.
  • A community-based safety net has been developed involving parents, community leaders, religious leaders and other stakeholders for real-time reporting of child abuse, harassment and early child marriage cases.
  • Different child club has been formed involving vulnerable children to create a bridge between vulnerable children and CWC and DCPU.
  • 323 children have been enrolled in their age-appropriate classes in government schools.
  • 123 children have been taken out from child labour in the Mica mining area by mainstreaming with the education system.
  • Establishment of Balwadi and Bal Sansad to energise leadership and confidence amongst children.
