DEARAH ASSOCIATION FOR SOCIAL AND HUMANITARIAN ACTION – ASHA
A Non – Profit Organization for the promotion of Child Rights & Women’s Empowerment
We take utmost pleasure to introduce our organization that has been working in order to promote and protect Child Rights with a prime focus on Child Protection in the blocks of Minakhan, Hingalgunj in the district of North 24 Parganas and in the block of Gosaba in the district of South 24 Parganas, however, we have been doing indirect intervention on the same issue in the various areas in Basirhat and Bangaon Sub – divisions along with the Indo – Bangladesh border where trafficking in persons especially the adolescents is a prevalent issue.
We as an organization believe that the issues pertaining to children are not isolated ones and they should be addressed encompassing to other issues affecting the community as a whole involving the local stakeholders as well as duty bearers, initiating a process for an amicable bond between the ‘rights holders’ and the ‘duty bearers’ that produces a group of ‘protagonists’ who takes child rights further to be ensured. Our activities involve ‘community participation & ownership’ to achieve the objectives through a designed Plan of Action in line of Awareness, Action, Access and Advocacy.
“The organization envisages a society for all those (marginalized, deprived, oppressed and lagging behind) wherein they exploit and explore their potentials in order to restore the factors responsible for their survival, development, protection and participation”.
To motivate and support children to promote their Rights;
To nurture adolescents for different processes become ‘change agent’;
To inculcate in women the sense of ‘empowerment’ and strive for the same;
To make the community responsive and participatory to the ‘development process’;
To initiate a process for bridging the gap between the ‘rights holders’ and the ‘duty bearers’;
