Tanuja Khatun, 18 is Save the Children’s Child Champion from Mouli Kalitala village of West Bengal. On National Girl Child’s Day on 24 January 2017, Government of West Bengal bestowed upon Tanuja a special award for her bravery and contribution towards empowering girls in the state. The teenager has helped save as many as 32 girls from trafficking, enabled reunification of more than 15 trafficked girl children with their families and prevented seven child marriages.

Back in February 2013, poverty and adverse family conditions made Tanuja move to Kolkata and work as child domestic worker in hazardous conditions. She was rescued by the members of Save the Children's Multi Activity Centre (MAC) which she herself joined later. We provided Tanuja the required learning assistance and got her re-admitted in a formal school. MAC groomed her to become a torch-bearer of children’s rights.

Thomas Chandy, CEO of Save the Children was the keynote speaker at the launch of a Situational Analysis Report by Apnalaya India titled ‘Life on the Margin: Charting Realities'. The report highlights the case of suspended development in Shivaji Nagar, within the M-East ward of Mumbai. Conducted in 12 clusters of Shivaji Nagar through 2015-16, the survey was undertaken, to both evaluate the availability of basic amenities and food security, and assess societal malpractices, like domestic violence and child abuse, and to aid in the planning of future programmes and initiatives.

In his address, Mr Chandy said, “I am proud to state Apnalaya is one of Save the Children’s most significant partners we have in India. I have grown in my appreciation of work that Apnalaya has been doing for the last 43 years in one of the most marginalised and vulnerable areas – the M east ward. Even in our Shivaji Nagar clusters, the underweight children are down from 61% to 47%, immunization completed by 23 months up from 29% to 76%, and institutional delivery up from 60% to 94% - in spite of the closure of the Deonar Maternity Home in 2014. All this happened in the last 3-4 years. We must understand that addressing maternal and child health in isolation – or education - does not lift the communities out of inter-generational poverty”. http://ow.ly/i/qZwwc
