Publications

'Publish or perish' is a new dictum. CSR recognizes that publication is an effective medium of awareness creation and sharing of experience and expertise. It is a medium for consolidated documentation of all the activities and to transfer the techniques to other NGOs and the public. The following are some of the important publications.

Experience in School Enrolment

The Project, 'Campaign for Enrollment and Elimination of School Dropouts in Tuticorin District' was implemented during the year 2001-2003. The various activities carried out, the different strategies adopted, the useful impacts created, and the hard experiences gained are well documented in this publication.


Child Labour System

The Child Labour Eradication Awareness programme was implemented by CSR from 1996 in 12 villages of Thovalai Taluk of Kanyakumari District with the active participation of CBOs. The book described the experiences of CSR in eradicating Child Labour in the villages. The objectives of the programme, problems and issues, the strategies adopted, the impacts of interaction and the lessons learnt were vividly documented. The implementation of the project had led to evolve a model of intervention with maximum participation of the people. The model is sustainable, cost effective and replicable. A report of the assessment study of this model in three districts of south Tamil Nadu with the technical support of 'Pro-Vision' is given in the publication.
