Secondary Prevention - Family Support (Part 2)

Anuja Bansal discusses the importance of everyone working together to prevent family separation

In this video, Chrissie Gale is speaking to Anuja Bansal from India.

Anuja is the National Director of SOS Children’s Villages India which is one of the largest of the SOS member organisations. Anuja has committed her career to social development and has over 20 years’ work experience. She has worked extensively with children and on issues of children’s rights and women’s empowerment as well as helping to strengthen the governance of relevant child protection organisations.

Anuja describes how the family support programme she is responsible for in India identifies particularly vulnerable children who may be at higher risk of separation from parental care. She explains how this programme takes an holistic approach to addressing the different concerns a family may have including those of health, finance, education, and nutrition. She speaks about the manner in which the child is at the centre of all their work and the importance of everyone working together to prevent family separation.
