Childline team does a lot of Outreach work to bring awareness about their work with children, so that if a child needs help, they know that they can get it from child line. During the past four months, child line team went to aaganwadis, schools, colleges, Panchayats, communities, etc. They met with students, children, parents, panchayat members, aaganwadi workers, teachers, professors, street children and families living on streets, etc. Through their outreach they met around 16800 people and spread awareness about ChildLine.

In all the areas where we have Balsena teams, we have Child Protection Samitis who meet each month. During these months, Child line team facilitated more than 50 Child protection committee meetings and more than 125 children and 320 adults participated in these meetings. During these meetings child rights overview, right to survival, right to protection from abuse and discrimination were discussed. Apart from that child line team also gave information about different schemes about children to the members. They also discussed about different misbehaviour and violence that children face, etc. Parents and children also discussed about the issues children face in their communities and together how can we solve them.

Case Studies:

During one of the Outreach in the school, the principal shared with the child line team that many girls have either dropped out or are not coming to school after the lockdown. The child line team asked for detail of these girls to find out about the issue. When the team visited their homes, many girls shared that they did not have access to smart phone or internet to study, so during the lockdown they couldn’t study, and some who had access shared that they did not understand online studies and videos. Hence, they dropped down. The child line team gave assurances to girls that the teachers would help them learn what they missed, and regularly visited their homes did counselling of them and their parents to continue their studies. At last, the girls agreed and started going regularly to the school and focus on learning.

Child line team received a call that a woman had found a boy who was about 7 years old. He wouldn’t talk with anyone. The team went to the child and patiently waited with him, and the child started speaking. He shared that his father sold alcohol and consumed it also, and used to hit this child a lot. The child line team took the child for medical examination and found the impacts of many beatings the child had received. The child was presented in front of the Child Welfare Committee and was given to shelter home for his protection. After couple of days, the father came with the lawyer to take back the child, but with intervention of child line team, the child remains protected in the shelter home and further case and investigation is on.
