Aangan works with children who are vulnerable to trafficking, hazardous or exploitative work, early marriage, violence and neglect. These children live in isolated rural settlements, urban unauthorized bastis, impoverished migrant communities – by the riverside, garbage dumping grounds, railway tracks, and have little or no access to services such as anganwadis, schools, police stations, and hospitals.

Aangan works at creating a safer environment for children – where every child is free from harm. Our child harm prevention model builds local community capacity and strengthens formal child protection systems in hotspots across highrisk districts. At the center of this work are a group of 10-12 trained community women volunteers who reach out and set up child and adult safety circles, bringing together local community knowledge, mutual trust, and accountability of government officials through a collaborative effort.
