National Socio-Economic Survey 2017 notes that in the City of Magelang, there were 31.7% of poor people with low education, labor status, and unemployment. Children from this poor family automatically are on child poverty condition. The problems are: (1) How do the city government and the CSR forum construct the child poverty problems, which in turn impacts the choice of CSR utilization policy—particularly in disruptive era, which is threatening labor’s job?; (2) How far is local poverty alleviation policy responsive to children?; and (3) How far is the utilization of new media in the communication strategy of poverty alleviation policy? This article aims at elaborating the design of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) utilization for poor child development in dealing with disruptive effect of information technology. The research was conducted by using qualitative method, with policy document study and interview as the data collection methods. Interpretative data analysis was carried out by using collaborative governance theory. The novelty of this research is in the study of child poverty with CSR collaboration as the sustainable pro-poor policy strategy. The research found that local government’s policy had not put child poverty in the priority of CSR utilization. Policy communication had not optimized new media as media for advocacy. The research’s contribution was the development of child-oriented local poverty overcoming policy. Further researches are recommended to study poor family’s perspectives on the alleviation of child poverty.
