Child Rights Fellowship.



The Child Rights Fellowship is a strategic collaboration between Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) and Ashoka University to engage young professionals in transforming the lives of children in Delhi NCR. The Fellowship aims to strengthen child rights and welfare in Delhi by driving mass impact on ground. It provides the Fellows with a platform to work on reforms, policy implementation and government stakeholder engagement. The Fellows get an opportunity to innovate interventions and leverage data to strengthen child welfare initiatives and resolve implementation bottle- necks. In the first year of the Fellowship itself, the Fellows have made a landmark achievement by launching 10+ projects across our three focus areas of Education, Health & Nutrition and Juvenile Justice.
