Though founded to act as a pressure group, the network is committed to the survival and development of the young child (0-6 years) and women working in the informal sector.
The core vision of FORCES is that every child has the right to early childhood care and development including crèches and childcare services. And also that it is the state’s responsibility to ensure such services for all children, especially those of women working in the unorganized and informal sector.
