Groupe Developpement, an international human rights organisation (www.gd-southasia.org), invites amateur and professional photographers to document issues of social security of children and adolescents in South Asia.
Groupe Developpement intends to promote the work of upcoming and talented photographers on issues of child protection in the region. The objective of the programme is to promote awareness on the social and political contexts that affect the security of children in India, Bangladesh and Nepal. At the same time, Groupe Developpement intends to support and promote interests of social documenters on issues of child rights.
The works will be exhibited to local, national and international audiences in various ways through a variety of innovative tools and media.
About Groupe Developpement:
Groupe Developpement’s child protection programme works towards elimination of child abuse, violence and exploitation and supports education, training and protection of those children who are particularly vulnerable to violence. In India, Bangladesh and Nepal, it works in partnership with child rights organisations – both in rural and urban areas of these countries.
Some of the at-risk groups of children and adolescents we work with include:
(a) rural adolescent girls who are potential victims of trafficking and unsafe migration that happens in the garb of work and marriage;
(b) street and railway children who are disconnected from their families and living on their own;
(c) children living in red-light areas who are vulnerable to second-generation prostitution; and
(d) children and adolescent victims of trafficking, sexual abuse, exploitation and violence.
