Abstract:
Issue: Our NGO has been actively working in the field of HIV/AIDS and Childcare for 10 years. We work in West Bengal, one of the biggest states of India Republic, devoting our attention to issues affecting adolescent male and female children between 13 and 19 years of age. Description: This is a very crucial period of life in an adolescent's life. Our duty is to give these children right choices. We encourage them to do something constructive. A few CDs of our ideal heroes, their struggles in life to do something constructive, definitely inspires them. Our style of work is ICE - Information communication through entertainment. The Project: Several workshops have been conducted to raise direct consciousness; about child labour, atrocities against women, immunization, childcare and adolescent issues, among the general masses of our society, with the help of folk songs and musicians working in the rural areas across several districts of West Bengal. Lesson Learnt: All workshops have elicited a positive response from participants of our orientation camps who are particularly excited and enthusiastic about the concept of using art forms and music as a media for promoting awareness. Recommendation: At present we are working with the NCC (National Cadet Corps) boys and girls who make up a large portion of the teenage population. A strong and bold step has to be taken to continue to educate them.
