PCVC Andhra began in 2007 with the objective of scaling up and replicating the PCVC models for intervention with child labour. The first geographical area selected for intervention was Guntur District – a rural coastal area where children are engaged in key occupations like fishing, agriculture and working in factories.
A first baseline survey was conducted in Bapatla (Guntur District) to gather information on out-of-school and working children in the area. The data was presented to the Education Department, as a result of which our first shelter was opened in the State.
In 2008, PCVC was asked to participate in a rescue operation with the Labour Department in Hyderabad. Thus started our urban program for vulnerable children.
PCVC AP is one of the fastest growing programs of PCVC, having successfully expanding interventions internally to urban communities in Hyderabad and rural blocks in Guntur District including Guntur City. The Disability Program in Andhra Pradesh continues to strengthen each year, successfully resolving over 500 cases pertaining to children with disability. In addition, Child Line was launched in Karimnagar District in partnership with our team last year, and this partnership has continued to thrive.
2015-16 Coverage: 7,538 children covered across Hyderabad City.
