Leher is a child rights organization, working to make child protection a shared responsibility, aiming for a society where caring families, alert communities and responsive governments come together to ensure the rights and protection of all children.

Leher works on preventive child protection in communities and builds local community engagement program that prevents children from being abused or exploited. The program equips communities with awareness, understanding of their situation, skills to mobilize themselves, demand and monitor child protection.

Leher’s strategy to achieve scale combines demonstration and learning, creation of knowledge and toolkits for communities, and building capability to assimilate community based preventive child protection solutions into larger existing institutions of government and civil society.

In their flagship field lab covering 36 villages, Leher has been able to drastically reduce child marriage, increase completion of schooling and has set up preventive community structures involving 700+ members.

Over the years, Prerana has impacted 22,000 children and 1487 girls between the age of 14 to 17 have been rescued from the sex trade since 2013.

Centre for Policy Research

The Centre for Policy Research (CPR) has been one of India’s leading public policy think tanks since 1973. CPR is a non-profit, non-partisan independent institution dedicated to conducting research that contributes to the production of high-quality scholarship, better policies, and a more robust public discourse about the structures and processes that shape life in India. CPR’s faculty regularly serves on numerous governments, national civil society, and international committees.

The Accountability Initiative (AI) within the Centre for Policy Research has been working on fiscal policy and governance processes since 2008. In 2009, Al started its flagship project called PAISA (Planning, Allocations and Expenditures, Institutions: Studies in Accountability) which undertakes large scale expenditure tracking studies. PAISA is widely acknowledged to be the country’s largest and only citizen-led effort to track social sector finances.

Over the past 13 years, Accountability Initiative has thus become a “go to” research group for work on budgetary analysis, expenditure tracking surveys and institutional studies to strengthen governance and accountability.
