Vidiyal strongly believes that children are present and they are too citizen’s of this country. As young citizens children have every right to participate in every decision affecting them right from the family to the governance of this country. This belief led Vidiyal in the direction of sharing authority with the children who are the primary stakeholders in its operation. Vidiyal has moved a long way from ‘deciding for children’ to deciding with children in the development paradigm. Adults tend to decide for children claiming that it is done in the ‘best interest of the child’. In contrary to this Vidiyal believes that the concept of best interest sprouts just from ‘listening to the voices’ of children and we strongly believe that ‘informed choices’ and ‘informed decisions’ are part of such process while engaging with children.
