M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation, Madras (India).; Indian Council for Child Welfare, New Delhi (India).
Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have demonstrated effectiveness in a spectrum of activities, including outreach to the poor, action against gender discrimination, and relief services. Partnerships between government and NGOs offer unique opportunities for progress toward sustainable development. In the context of some recent government directives in India, there is speculation in the NGO community that responsibility for conducting the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) programs in some areas will gradually be handed over to NGOs. This document summarizes a consultation on NGO-Government Partnerships for Child Care, during which the experiences of successful partnerships were shared and issues affecting the expanding role of NGOs were raised. The chapters of the proceedings are: (1) "Building People's Capacities" (Sarala Gopalan); (2) "Learning from Success Stories" (Chandra Ghariyali); (3) "Evolving Appropriate Structures" (Khin Sandi Lwin); (4) "Critical Issues in Partnership" (Adarsh Sharma); (5) "Child Care--The URMUL Experience" (Sanjoy Ghose); (6) "Child Care--The RASS Experience" (G. Munirathnam); (7) "Partnership for Literacy--The Arivoli Experience" (V. B. Athreya and Sheela Rani Chunkath); (8) "Women and Credit" (Anita Praveen); and (9) "MYRADA [Mysore Resettlement and Development Agency]--A Background Note" (E. Swaminathan). The proceedings also includes a discussion of outcomes, and a list of participants. (BGC)
