NEW DELHI: A random analysis by National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) covering over 600 NGOs running child care institutions showed that going by FRCA data on the quantum of donations in 2018-19, the average amount received per child in these CCIs ranged between Rs 2.12 lakh and Rs 6.60 lakh.
The analysis covered 638 NGOs across Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Telangana and Karnataka that housed around 28,900 children at the time the NCPCR commissioned the social audit in 2018-19.
On why these five states were chosen, NCPCR chief Priyank Kanoongo said the audit in 7,163 homes in 2018-19 found around 2.56 lakh children in CCIs. Of these, over 1.63 lakh were in five southern states. NCPCR decided to analyse trends in foreign funding by taking these five states first, an official said. The NCPCR plans to study the trend further and extend the analysis to other states too.
“We are not alleging anything but yes, we want that whatever money is coming into the country should be used for the benefit of the child as these CCIs are under the Juvenile Justice Act,” the NCPCR chief said.
The random analysis was carried out by picking NGOs running CCIs audited by the Lucknow-based Academy of Management Studies in 2018-19. Kanoongo said they took the FCRA data available on the home ministry’s website (www.fcraonline.nic.in) for the year 2018-19.
“The calculation was carried out with the receipt of foreign contribution by NGOs running CCIs against the number of children staying during the social audit,” he said, adding that the expenditure per child per annum, including all recurring expenses, came to about Rs 60,000.
