Rescuing 9000 Children From The Streets In India
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Almost 25000 children land on the streets of Bangalore city every year. It's hard to imagine how much these children suffer on the street. Many children enter in to antisocial activities either willingly or unwillingly to survive on the streets. There is lots of vulnerable abusers on the streets to take away these children as and when they land up on the streets and make money out of it. This project will benefit more than 9000 children on the street.
How will this project solve this problem?
"Child safety Net" is based on the innovative concept street presence through which BOSCO personnel maintain clock wise vigilance to meet each and every child whose rights are violated on the streets of Bangalore. The preventive aspects of street presence ensure immediate rescue of the children who needs a care and protection with the support of caring communities and send him/her to a safer environment.
