Aangan works with children in dangerous situations like child trafficking, child marriage, hazardous work, and abuse. Our prevention model targets ‘hotspots’ across the country where children are most at risk – either because these are sites of hazardous child labor or are associated with harmful traditions like high rates of child marriage, trafficking, and girl child discrimination. Here, we work with parents, children and government officials to build strong care and protection systems that keep children safe.
