Abstract:

CHILDREN’S DEVELOPMENT KHAZANA
A research on Skill building technique: A school for learning and practicing Children’s Participation and Democratic principles

Background

Rural poor, urban street and working children constitute one of the most disadvantaged sections of societies across South Asia, living a life of extreme deprivation with few opportunities available that are necessary for their development.

The Children’s Development Khazana (CDK) is a logical evolution of Butterflies’ saving and credit union scheme and works on banking and cooperative principles. Started in April 2001 as a vehicle to empower street and working children, the project is operational in the South Asia with 119 branches in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Kyrgyzstan.

Children and adolescents are the only stake holders of CDK. Any rural poor, urban or street and working child can save money with the khazana, which is their own and is run by children like them, under the guidance of adult facilitators.

Objectives
CDK’s primary objective is to impart life skill education, supporting children to be responsible, priortise needs, budget and save.

Findings

CDK showcases a promising example of life skills based education for the poor children in rural and urban context, while encouraging the children to also complete their mainstream education as a pre requisite to a secure future. The issues of democratic functioning are understood when the children themselves manage the khazana. The CDK in turn also becomes their lifeline as it supports them with their own savings, which can be used to improve their lives by spending their money on useful things, buying nutritious food, taking care of their health and so on.


CDK focuses on empowering its adolescent members to plan for their future, build their business skills and move towards a secure and sustainable future.
