In the networking process, an important strategy adopted by TN-FORCES was building up of an effective partnership among the member organisations. For a team to take shape, grow and develop, the members should have clarity of purpose, identification with the cause and collective approach to address the issues. While TN-FORCES has been advocating the cause of the children and Early Childhood Care and Development, it has consciously worked to build up alliances with other like-minded organisations, operating in the State, described below:

1.Campaign against Child Labour (CACL), Tamil Nadu in their pre-election appeal to the political parties to include in their election manifestoes the issues pertaining to the children below 6 years, like pre-school education, crèches for children of women in the unorganised labour sector, Right to Education.
