To sensitise civil societies on the situation of orphan and vulnerable children in the absence of parental care and various alternative care models and ensure peoples’ participation in implementation of different laws related to child protection under the Juvenile Justice Care and Protection Act and Integrated Child Protection Scheme (ICPS), a district-level workshop was organised by the NGO YCDA at Boudh on Wednesday.
