We build together a world fit for children

About Us


Our site is about neighbourhood-based Children’s Parliaments.

Edwin M John is the intiator of this process since 1998. It is being done through Neighbourhood Community Network (NCN).

The efforts of NCN culminated in forming Tamilnadu-Pondicherry State Parliament of Children (TPSPC) in 2007. It had its swearing-in-ceremonies in 2008, 2009 and 2010 at Chennai, Trichy and Salem,

We as members and ministers of NPCs of TPSPC had been actively involved in addressing and finding solutions to our problems since 2007.

Hence our TPSPC received a global UNICEF San Marino Alexander Bodini Award for the best child-led organization for child rights action in 2009.

Our NPCs are massively organised, empowered, sustainable, grassroots-based and well-federated, child-led participatory structures. We constantly keep responding to the needs disadvantaged children in our neighbourhoods.

We have exclusive child ministers for health, hygiene, environment, human rights, child rights, disability, education, peace, justice, sustainable agriculture, poverty eradication, climate change, and for whatever concerns that affect us.

We have more than 10,000 NPCs in Tamilnadu. We have NPCs in 23 states in India too. We have NPcs in Malawi and Tanzania.

This site is about NPC at the grassroots and their multi-tier federations at global levels. We invite you to become an active participant of this process.
