CRRECENT Research and Documentation/Information Bureau
CRRECENT seeks to fill a gap in data and information on children from civil society perspective to support evidence-based advocacy and other interventions for children.
CRRECENT undertakes surveys, studies and evaluation in partnership with stakeholders into issues of children and youth. Information so generated from the surveys and studies on children are used to plan interventions for them.
