Priyanka Chopra inspires teenage girls to aim high with UNICEF
 
01:57
To mark International Youth Day 2014, Bollywood Actress and International Recording Artist Priyanka Chopra visited young women in Chandrapur, India to witness how their lives are being transformed through the Building Young Futures Deepshikha programme, which is run by UNICEF in partnership with Barclays. In India there are around 243 million adolescents who are facing rising youth unemployment. Life can be particularly hard for young women as they face the challenges of limited economic opportunities and access to training and employment, which reinforce broader issues of discrimination, early marriage, violence and poverty. Priyanka Chopra has been supporting UNICEF’s adolescent work in India for eight years. During her visit she met young women from the programme and saw how they are being empowered to help fulfil their potential. Building Young Futures is a global partnership between Barclays and UNICEF that aims to unlock the potential of young people from disadvantaged communities. Through the programme in India young women are receiving peer to peer support in developing the life, enterprise and financial skills they need to overcome the challenges they face to become strong, financially independent women as well as agents of change in their communities. Priyanka Chopra said: “Girls have the ability to transform their own lives, develop their own enterprises and help grow India’s economy. The Building Young Futures programme being implemented by UNICEF in collaboration with Barclays is giving them the vital skills and support they need to make this happen.

Silent Scream: Understanding nutrition crisis among India’s tribal children
 
06:44
India is home to 104 million Tribal Peoples. For centuries, forests nourished them. In the last 70 years, they lost their forests, their habitat, livelihood and social identity. Today, every second Tribal child is chronically undernourished. The loss of land and livelihood is a major cause of undernourishment. Financial and social insecurity aggravates the problem of premature marriages and early pregnancy. 70 per cent of Tribal women become mothers before the age of 20. 47 per cent of these mothers are undernourished. Poor sanitation and lack of public services exacerbates Tribal Peoples nutrition crisis. The nutrition crisis and neglect needs to end. It's time to correct the historic wrongs. Underserved and under nourished, the Tribal Peoples have been left for too long out of the India’s growth story. We need to realize... They are not 'they'... They... are Us #iCOMMIT to change the situation...

Let The Tribal Peoples Voice Lead - Virginius Xaxa
 
04:17
Historically, Tribal Communities have best flourished in their own domain, where they had ownership of land and forests, which they protected prudently. Sadly, when they are displaced because of dams, industries or other infrastructure, often there is either no or inadequate rehabilitation, resettlement and compensation. In Odisha and Jharkhand where poverty among adivasis is highest, displacement has also been maximum. Weak governance is the main reason for poverty and chronic undernutrition among tribal children. Tribal Peoples rely heavily on forests for their livelihood and close to half of their daily food intake comes from the forest. It follows that restricting their access to forests has a direct impact on their lives, nutrition status and therefore the overall quality of health. In the past, when Tribal Peoples lived in the forest, a wide variety of foods ranging from vegetables, fruits, milk and animal products were available. But after moving out of their habitat, poor income has restricted their ability to buy a variety of foods and this has had an adverse implication on their lives. Families also find it difficult to adjust to the new food practices; unsurprisingly therefore, there is considerable deficiency in food intake. The Constitution provides protection along with the provisions for development and implementation of welfare programmes and schemes for adivasis. However, there has been too much concentration on the development part but the protection part has not been taken care of. All the affirmative action programmes of education, health and employment gets countered by the larger issue of the political space that actually throws them out from their livelihood and where their voice is unfortunately missing or unheard. In order to make a difference to their lives, it is important that for some time, the larger trends in political economy of development are altered to ensure that Tribal Peoples are really able to develop. The constitutional guarantee to provide protection to Tribal Peoples must be ensured along with the effective implementation of the different affirmative action programmes and schemes. The larger questions relating to land and forests should be addressed by giving Tribal communities their entitlements to land, forests and other kinds of resources. If they have their own voice, possibly a state of their own, and autonomy over their territory, they should be better able to articulate their needs more forcefully. Therefore, the real issue is to change the paternalistic mindset of the government that something good for the people being done to ensuring voice and space is provided to them. This will help in regaining their right to a better and productive life. - Professor Virginius Xaxa, Deputy Director, Tata Institute of Social Science, Guwahati

Meet Barmer's E-ASHA
 
02:08
While the typical ASHA moves around with pen and paper 'collecting information', Barmer's E-ASHA provides counselling with the help of fancy tablets. You heard it right! In 2006, the Ministry of Panchayati Raj named Barmer among India's 250 most backward districts. In addition to economic challenges and the daily hardships imposed by a life in the desert, women and children in Barmer have limited access to quality health care and counseling services. The infant and maternal mortality rate in the district is among the highest in Rajasthan. The people living in villages in this district, like any other district in India, rely heavily on ASHA workers to provide counselling on pregnancy and newborn care. In April this year, the community health mobilizers of Barmer witnessed a drastic transformation in their roles when they were equipped with tablets to support their work of counseling mothers and pregnant women on issues related to health, nutrition, sanitation and best hygiene practices. Besides significantly improving their counseling capacity, the tablets helped the health workers to keep a tab on the health of mothers, pregnant women and children. A large credit for this innovation goes to the young students like Vivek Agarwal and Vaibhav Bahuguna from IIT Jodhpur who have worked hard for the idea of E-ASHA to be successful. Join us in congratulating these students and also wishing Barmer's E-ASHAs like Pushpa Devi all the best for their work in Barmer. Watch this video to see how ASHAs has incorporated the tablets as one key element in their day-to-day work.

India Is Now Polio Free
 
03:48
India has not reported any case of polio since a two-year old girl got polio paralysis on 13 January 2011 in Howrah district of West Bengal. India’s victory over polio paves the way for polio-free certification of the South East Asia region of WHO. India overcame huge challenges, with a strong commitment that matched $ 2 billion allocation over the years to stop polio. Implementing innovative strategies, the programme reaches an incredible 99 per cent coverage in polio campaigns, ensuring every child, even in the remotest corner of the country is protected against polio. India introduced the oral polio vaccine in 1985 in the Universal Immunisation Programme in the backdrop of over 200,000 cases of polio annually (as per estimates of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics). In 1995, the first national polio immunization campaign was held; since then two national and multiple sub-national campaigns are rolled out every year for children up to 5 years of age. In each national polio campaign, 2.3 million lakh vaccinators, led by 155,000 upervisors, visit 209 million households to immunize 170 million children up to the age of 5 years. To immunize children on the move, transit vaccinators are positioned at bus stands, train stations, on trains, market places and important road intersections. Nearly 10 million children are immunized by the transit teams in each polio campaign, of them 100,000 on trains. Focusing on the migrant population, the people on the move in search of livelihood who miss polio immunization in view of their transient nature, the programme covers 70,000 brick kilns and 38,000 construction sites. Nearly 4.5 million children are immunized in the high-risk migrant settlements in each polio campaign. Since the start of the polio campaigns in 1995, as many as 131 polio campaigns have been held in India till date, in which 12.1 billion doses of polio vaccines have been administered.

I wish there was a way to break this vicious cycle of violence. I wish my Asha was given space to blossom into a young confident woman who can make her own choices and inspire millions of other little girls and boys in India. But I live in hope (Asha) for the future generations of India," One might think that Devi's story cannot happen anymore, that the world is today a better place than the one described above, that a woman cannot bear so much suffering on her own. This is unfortunately a realistic story and the life of millions of women and children is not far from the one of Devi and her daughters Sapna and Asha. Harmful social practices still prevail in some remote parts of India and children are the first ones who suffer: • More than 5,000 children die every day before their fifth birthday • 61 million children are malnourished • More than 600 million people defecate in the open • 80 million children will never finish primary school • 8.1 million children are out-of-school • Out of the 1.3 million schools in India, more than 500,000 do not have any separate toilets for girls. • More than 28 million children are working • 43 per cent of women 20-24 were married before 18 • More than 70 per cent of adolescents girls are anemic • 16 per cent of adolescents girls have begun child bearing However, as an Indian proverb says: "there are always one thousand suns behind the clouds". And the IKEA Foundation -- UNICEF India partnership, active for the past 10 years in India, has already clearly demonstrated that we can achieve results at scale and create a better everyday life for the many Indian children. Over the last ten years, UNICEF India and IKEA Foundation have strived to ensure that child rights are respected and fulfilled in every corner of India. Some tremendous results have already been achieved and shown that change is possible and is possible at a large scale. More than five million children are now breastfed within one hour of birth, 75 million children have received a vitamin A capsule, 32 million additional households have now a toilet, and more than 15,000 ex-child labourers are now going to school. Millions of children and adults including women like Devi and Asha have already benefited from our partnership.

Children who are compelled to work are robbed of childhood itself. The majority of child labourers are invisible and often beyond the reach of the law. Many of them are denied basic health care, education, adequate nutrition, and the protection and security of their communities and families. Combating child labour requires not only political leadership but broad-based partnerships - Ms. Yumi Bae, Chief, UNICEF Odisha. The song, ‘Sunle Maula,’ highlights inequities that affect children, is sung by Bollywood playback singer Rituraj Mohanty. The song is composed by young musicians from Odisha: Sudeep Pravu, Biswajit Mahapatra & Sameet Pattnaik. The music video, directed by a young film director, Shuvendu Ghadai is supported by UNICEF.

Every child's right to free expression is a guiding principle of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and this includes adolescents. They are as deserving of care and protection as young children, and they are as worthy of consideration and participation as adults. The Deepshikha programme works to bring education and empowerment to these adolescent girls and, in the long-term, to ensure increased participation in decision-making that affects them. Their increased levels of confidence and strengthened capabilities are challenging traditional discriminatory beliefs and practices towards women. Deepshikha was launched by UNICEF in 2008 in partnership with the Government of Maharashtra and local NGOs.There are now more than 2,200 Deepshikha groups in four districts of the state, reaching more than 50,000 adolescent girls.

From 200, 000 to Zero - The journey to a Polio-free India Before the launch of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, polio crippled an estimated 200,000 children in India each year. As recently as 2009, India reported almost half the world's cases -- 741 out of a total 1604 cases worldwide. Many health experts predicted India would be the last country to eradicate polio. Yet in 2012 India achieved a major milestone. By passing one full year without recording any cases, India is no longer considered a polioendemic country.
