Rachel interviews our India country director (watch below at 02:40 minutes)
Rachel Bonnetta sits down with Belinda Bennet, CCFC’s country director in India, to discuss issues she sees children and youth face every day and what we’re doing to work toward solutions.
“There’s a project we call child-friendly accountability. It’s a tool for change,” said Belinda while explaining how CCFC is working to improve the lives of children in India. “This particular framework simply means empowering children to know their rights, so when there is something wrong in the system, there is a mechanism in which they can address it in a systematic way.”
