The first ever Conference of Partner NGOs is being organized by the Ministry of Women and Child Development (WCD) on October 9 in the national capital.
 
The subject of the conference is “Implementation of Policies, Schemes, and Programmes for Women and Children: Challenges and Way Forward”. 
 
The conference will be inaugurated by the Minister of Women & Child Development, Maneka Sanjay Gandhi.
 
The aim of the conference is to sensitize partner NGOs across the country for the implementation of various WCD schemes and to give them an opportunity to share their experiences and insights. The challenges confronted at the grassroots level for the welfare of women and children will also be deliberated upon.
 
Two hundred and fifty NGOs across the country, line Ministries and experts have been invited to participate in the conference.
 
The conference will be based on the broad themes of Violence Against Women: Prevention and Facilitating Access to Justice; National Policy for Women: Policy Interventions for Gender Parity; Trafficking of Women and Children: Role of State Institutions; Cyber Crime and Children: Prevention and Harm Reduction; Implementation of JJ Act: Structural Challenges and Mainstreaming of Children.
 
"Ensuring prevention and wellbeing of women and children is not only a constitutional commitment but is also absolutely necessary for natural growth and development. The Ministry has made various interventions and created legislative and supportive institutional mechanisms for preventing crime against women and facilitating access to justice. Similarly, measures have also been taken by the Ministry for the safety and protection of children.
 
"The WCD Ministry has been partnering with several NGOs at various levels to facilitate NGOs working in the area of women and child development," an official press release said.
 
The expected outcome of the conference is to ascertain the existing problems and drawbacks in the present set up of delivery system at the grassroots level; to develop ways for constructive policy formulation and programme implementation by assessing the lessons discussed during the conference; to increase engagement of these organizations for advocacy on women empowerment and child safety and security.
