The Child Friendly Village Planning exercise of UNICEF has been very successful in Krishnagiri district largely due to the involvement and commitment of about 20-30 panchayat level youth volunteers (male and female equally). Now we have planned to redesignate this team as the Village Volunteer Force. The change will not only be in nomenclature, but also in the scope of their activities. These youth will be trained in first aid, disaster management, water and sanitation, literacy and of course they will be the pillars of strength for the "Out of School Children" tracking and monitoring system.
