Story

In India, a child goes missing every 8 minutes (NCRB). In Odisha alone 100s of children runaway everyday and land up at railway platforms only to become potential targets of Child Trafficking, Sexual Abuse, Child Begging, Child Labour and Drug Peddlers.

The consequences are quite evident:
  • Increased Vulnerability to child trafficking
  • Increased Vulnerability to child labour
  • Increased Vulnerability to child beggary
  • Increased Vulnerability to drug addiction
  • Increased Vulnerability to flesh trade
Some indirect consequences:
  • Children are easily prone to Health Hazards
  • Children are easily prone to mental and physical atrocities
  • Children are easily prone to antisocial activities
  • Will increase illiteracy and poverty
Project Rakshyak of SOciety for CHildren (SOCH-a registered non-profit organisation established in July 2012) is intensively working towards rescue and resettlement of runaway, missing, abandoned and abducted children focused on Railway Stations. As per the figures till 30th April 2018, the project has rescued 4210 children from its operational Districts of Khordha, Ganjam and Puri; out of which 2958 children have been reunited with their loving parents. Based on our records more than 80% of cases reason for over trivial issues that leads to a fatal future.



This is quite alarming as in spite of regular intervention the problem still persists. Hence, based on the statistics, there is a need to intensify the activities with more resourceful approach. Rescue-Resettlement process intermediates child and parent counselling, child nutrition, first aid and cloth support, family address tracing of the children, Govt. formalities, child resettlement, Stakeholder awareness and sensitization meetings and follow-up.



The Rescue-Resettlement cost for each child accounts to 4000/- (INR). Any humble contribution is a step forward. So join hands, participate and be a part to "help a child go back home".
