The Regional Children's Theatre Project in South Asia

Karin Markensten
A Review / Sida has commissioned a mid-term review of the regional project "Children's Voice".The project aims at developing and establishing a professional children's theatre in India and in Bangladesh. The Swedish International Theatre Institute/ITI is the Swedish counterpart. The project is financed by Sida with SEK 16 200 000.
In summary, the result of the project for the first part of the project period is very positive. The project activities are furthering the project objective that a professional basis for children's theatre is on its way to be established. There is also evidence that the project influences positively the development objective, the situation for children.
