A VOICE FOR CHILDREN: INFLUENCING THROUGH ADVOCACY
ARVI advocacy initiatives are focussed on creating an environment - societal, legislative and temporal - that facilitates every girl and boy reaching his or her fullest potential. While rights awareness and rights education at the grass roots levels help communities claim what is rightfully theirs, national level advocacy around issues of children, especially those in crisis, are focussed on bringing about equitable implementation of policies as well as influencing policy debates.
ARVI advocates for the children at the highest policy levels of the country. ARVI has been made a member of various Government working groups and committees at the national and district levels. Some of the key memberships at the national level.
