Challenge

The Trust aims reach out to as many vulnerable children as possible through outreach activities and rescue operations. Upon authentic tips, SBT's team carries out rescue operation with support of Childline team. Teams of social workers scout railways station, bus stops and crowded market places to find children in vulnerable circumstances. The child is encouraged to come to the Contact point where food, medical aid, counselling and fun learning activity services are provided.

Solution

Teams of social workers also work on a preventive mode in urban slums where children are vulnerable to becoming street children. Here work is carried out in sync with families & community leaders for the welfare of children. Children are encouraged to come to Community Contact points where education, healthcare, counselling and vocational training services are provided.
