Kolkata: Child in Need Institute (CINI), one of the leading Non-Government Organisations of India celebrated its 50 years of ‘Commitment to the Children and Communities’ on Thursday. To uphold the concept of ‘Child Friendly Communities’ and to encourage child participation, 4 boys and girls from 4 states of India chaired as the ‘Chief Guest’ of the programme.

Indrani Bhattacharya, CEO of CINI, described the five decade long journey of CINI with the people and the Central and State Governments of different states and also shared that how from a weekly clinic at a school room, CINI is now serving 1 crore people of six states of India every year.

Sujoy Roy, National Advocacy Officer, CINI said, “For nearly half a century, CINI has been at the forefront of efforts to uplift vulnerable children in rural and urban communities across India. Our unwavering mission encompasses ensuring that children and adolescents have unfettered access to essential services and entitlements, including health, nutrition, education, protection, participation, and a safe living environment.”
