Development indicators for Rajasthan have improved in past decade. However, when SARA initiated rural development work in the project area, status of women and children was beyond imagination. Status of nutrition, education, child right and prospects of overall development of children and especially girl child was very poor. Situation of children among marginalized and tribal communities was meager. SARA contributed initial years of its work towards education and health of children. Organization had worked exclusively with marginalized and tribal population to enhance fundamental rights of children. Children Parliament and Bal Panchayat were some of the initiatives of SARA to bring children in to social mainstream.
