Challenge

In Bihar in India, one of India's poorest states, there are no developed child welfare systems, and Rescue Junction reaches out to children who have been forgotten and abandoned. These children are at risk of being involved in prostitution or criminal activities and before Rescue Junction they had no one to turn to for help or assistance. Over 500 lost missing and trafficked children have been reunited with their parents since the centre opened.

Solution

Night Shelter with food/ Children's Savings Bank/ Legal Services and Child protection officer/Free legal help/Education/vocational activities/help with finding families./Clothes and Blankets.24 hour care. The centre provides over 3,000 meals a month for children

Long-Term Impact

It is the aim of the trust to engage with the police, railway authorities, the judicial system and local government in helping to provide a child safety network in the district. This has the potential to help thousands of kids.
