Every Child has certain basic rights granted under the Constitution of India. 

Each Child has the Right to Survival, Life, education, Health and Play. 

However Children are the most Vulnerable of all. 

We are committed to work for Child Protection and Ensure that, Whatever the Circumstances, -

Each Child has a Safe and Secured environment 

Each Child has a Home to be with

Each Child is in School

No Child is Abused by any

No Child lives in Fear and Abusive environment

No Child is forced to Beg or indulge in an abusive activity

The Task is Herculean but Our Commitment surmounts the same.


We are a not-for-profit born in 2004 out of a personal commitment of the Founder, a Sociologist by profession. We came into being with the vision of Empowering the neglected segment of our population, i.e., the women and the children. We wanted to capacitate them to an extent that they can secure a dignified and secured life for themselves. Therefore we began with Literacy and Education as a Tool of Empowerment. Gradually we realised that Violence and Abuse in the life of women and children can damage their entire efforts to bring up their life. We realised that Freedom from Abuse and Violence is fundamentally crucial for their economic and social empowerment. Thus began our journey  with Child Line.   We felt an urgent need to save thousands of those innocent childhoods whom we all know are the future of our civilisation.  

We are at it, Come forward to Strengthen Us so that we can Enhance our Reach and Support all those who need us!

Thank You for your support!
