Assessment of Issues Faced by Adolescent Girls & Boys During COVID-19

Centre for Catalyzing Change (C3)

To better understand the lived realities of adolescents, C3 reached out to adolescents in four
states, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Bihar, and Odisha through a structured survey covering over 72oo
young people in April and July-August 2020. C3 has conducted an assessment in 2 rounds and
questions included young people’s COVID-19 related knowledge and awareness.


This phone-based assessment of adolescents (10-19 years) included questions on the schooling status of the adolescent girls and risk factors for school dropouts, risk factors for early marriage, knowledge, and practices during COVID -19. The team adopted the Telephonic surveys because of the need for physical distancing and to avoid any transmission through contact.
