Research Studies
Being an organization committed for the cause of children, Vidiyal has been conducting research studies on specific topics based on the need. Interns are provided with the opportunity to undertake short term research studies with the support of our staff and volunteers. The findings of a research are always useful in designing our intervention to resolve a particular issue.
In our journey down the years we have encountered with suicidal attempts by three children which led to the conduction of a study on “suicidal tendencies in slums”.

The strategies for preventing child marriages in our communities were anchored on the findings of a study on “Child marriages in Madurai slums”.

A study on ‘Life effectiveness’ of Arunthathiyar living in Theni district was conducted in the year 2008 for Arogya Agam by our President Dr.Sujatha Rita and Executive Director Mr.C.Jim Jesudoss
In the same year another study on ‘Community Perspectives on Discriminatory Practices against Arunthathiyar community’ was conducted in Theni district by our team This enabled Arogya Agam, a voluntary organization in Theni district in designing their ‘Social Inclusion’ programme for the upliftment of Arunthathiyar community.
Following the success of the previous studies for Arogya Agam, a voluntary organization in Theni district, in 2009 a study on ‘Community Perspectives on Discriminatory Practices against Dalits’ was conducted in Cuddalore district by Dr.Sujatha Rita and Mr.C.Jim Jesudoss for Arogya Agam

DISTRICT NEED ASSESSMENT OF CHILD PROTECTION OF MADURAI DISTRICT

In 2013 we undertook the “District Need Assessment of Child Protection of Madurai District” for the Department of Social Defence, Government of Tamilnadu and worked with a range of stakeholders including, children, children with special needs, parents, officials from various allied departments, teachers, police, media, NGOs, authorities of children homes etc., We were very much appreciated for the findings and the suggestions made. We have also developed a Resource Directory as part of the assessment. This study is going to be the referral document for the future plans under the Integrated Child Protection Scheme (ICPS) of Government of India.
