Action for the Rights of the Child (ARC)
ARC is a network of organisations in Pune, Maharashtra, working for and with children. Set up in 1991, with Terre des Hommes, the network has been successful in bringing together more than 25 organisations on a common platform of children’s rights. ARC has been instrumental in easing the admission process in government schools for children without birth certificates. Lobbying for more openness in the functioning of government-run residential institutions, getting the corporation to provide shelters for street children, and being one of the founder members of the nation-wide Campaign Against Child Labour have been ARC’s other contributions. TMCP collaborates with ARC on various issues related to children in the mobile creches. At TMCP we are committed to protect the following fundamental rights of the child.
