Training and Capacity Building


At Agape Blessed Foundation Trust (ABFT), we are committed to enhancing the knowledge and skills of law enforcement agents through regular training programs. Our initiative addresses a critical gap in awareness and understanding among case workers, Child Care Institutions (CCI), and police personnel, particularly those at the lower levels, regarding the provisions under various laws pertaining to children.

The Need for Training

Children in Need of Care and Protection (CNCP) and Children in Conflict with Law (CICL) often suffer due to the inadequate knowledge of the professionals responsible for their welfare. The Juvenile Justice Act 2000 (as amended in 2006) is a key piece of legislation designed to protect and rehabilitate these children. Unfortunately, many police personnel are not even aware of its existence, let alone its specific provisions. This lack of basic legal information and knowledge results in unsatisfactory handling of child victims and CICL, compromising their rights and well-being.

Our Training Programs

ABFT offers comprehensive training programs aimed at bridging this knowledge gap. We provide law enforcement agencies with the opportunity to:

  • Understand the Juvenile Justice Act: Gain in-depth knowledge of the Juvenile Justice Act 2000, its amendments, and its implications for children in different circumstances.
  • Enhance Child Protection Skills: Learn best practices for handling CNCP and CICL, ensuring their rights are upheld and their needs met.
  • Build Capacity Among Various Stakeholders: Our training is not limited to police personnel; we also train social workers, staff of Child Care Institutions, and Anganwadi workers, ensuring a holistic approach to child protection.

Key Training Focus Areas

  • Legal Provisions: Detailed sessions on the Juvenile Justice Act and other relevant child protection laws.
  • Child-Friendly Practices: Techniques and practices for interacting with children in a compassionate and effective manner.
  • Case Management: Strategies for effective case management, ensuring timely and appropriate interventions.
  • Collaboration and Coordination: Encouraging a multi-disciplinary approach, promoting collaboration among various stakeholders involved in child welfare.

Our Impact

Through our training programs, we aim to create a more informed, sensitive, and effective network of professionals dedicated to the welfare of children. By empowering law enforcement agents and other stakeholders with the knowledge and skills they need, we strive to ensure that every child receives the care and protection they deserve.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children, ensuring their rights are protected and their futures are bright.

Child Rights Education and Workshops

We works towards enabling children to participate effectively, engaging with them and facilitating their participation through activity based workshops, and other forums. We believe that children need to participate in discussions and decisions that concern them. All children anywhere in the world need to have information about their rights and responsibilities. Children can express their desires, feelings and apprehensions effectively through creative mediums such as drawings, paintings and photography.

To involve children in participation, we initiated the process of Child Participation Workshops in 2021 onwards using creative art and participatory discussions as the medium in Different Anganwadis, Open Shelters and Child Care Institutions to encourage children to explore their needs, rights and responsibilities. These Kind of workshop helps the children to express themselves and also motivate them in the positive manner.
