Joyful Learning – Courtroom skit
This project intervenes in deep rooted social practices that hamper a child’s wellbeing. The logic for the setup of this hotline comes from the plight of those suffering child abuse, child marriages etc.

Right to Information
Tamil Nadu was one of the first States in which the Right to Information Act was enacted successfully. The Act applies to all States and Union Territories of India except the State of Jammu and Kashmir. Under the provisions of the Act, any citizen may request information from a “public authority” (a body of Government or “instrumentality of State”) which is required to reply expeditiously or within thirty days.
However, those in the isolated rural parts of the State such as those that we seek to help, are unaware of this provision and its benefits towards them and are often victims of information abuse.
The fundamental objective of the project is to empower and educate the local communities through innovative campaigns, capacity building workshops, and creating widespread sustainable awareness and education on Right to Information Act.
