Working with Children: The Processes and the Model and Its Replication

  • Asha BajpaiEmail author


Following the rescue of children from gross abuse, neglect, and exploitation, Project Chunauti initiated a rehabilitation program in 2012. Interventions were designed and implemented based on the needs of the children. The project aimed at making children as independent as possible. A replicable, adaptable socio-legal model of intervention emerged. The Hon’ Mumbai High Court directed the State Government to replicate the project in all the 19 Homes for the intellectually disabled. It is currently being replicated across Maharashtra.
