An analysis of media reports on crimes against children that appeared between January and December 2017 were analysed to understand issues related to safe schools and safe childhood. These findings were later shared with multiple stakeholders – including children, teachers and school management committee members as well as civil society representatives. The analysis of media reports can be read here.
