Founded in Kolkata in 1974, Child In Need Institute's (CINI) work is guided by an integrated approach that seeks to ensure sustainable development through multiple strategies in the fields of education, protection, health, and nutrition with a focus on women and children. The organization has wide experience in developing pilots and low-cost approaches that have, in several instances, been adopted by the Government of India and replicated in broader systems. CINI has previously received a MacArthur award to implement a project with youth in schools and in the community to deliver sexual and reproductive health information and services, and to prevent child marriage in four districts in the state of West Bengal. With this tie-off award CINI is continuing to implement the intervention in two districts and sharing results of the project so that it may be more widely adopted.
