Inter-Generational Communication – Fostering Parent Child Dialogue
The Centre for Catalyzing Change for the past two decades has worked with young people, strengthening their life skills and agency through several in-schools and out of school programs. Promoting Parent Child Interaction and Communication Project is a one of a kind model program that reached out to primary caregivers and adolescents to help them communicate better on physical and physiological changes that occurs amongst adolescents. The intervention design of this model program, supported by Ford Foundation and Population Council, is based on the organizations past experience of working with adolescents across urban and rural settings, that reflects the need for parents to be better empowered and aware on adolescent growing up issues. The program has reached out to 1000 parents with adolescent children aged 13-17 years in 13 villages of Aarah block of Bhojpur district in Bihar.
