40% of India's children are vulnerable. Our goal is to reach "invisible" vulnerable children and strengthen state or community protection systems around them as well as build the child's own resilience and coping strategies.
Whether they are children living in the harsh jail-like conditions of state-run children's institutions, or children engaging in dangerous work or risky activities or facing social exclusion in urban slums, we firmly believe that only a safe, supported child can cope effectively with difficult circumstances, access healthcare, education or meaningful livelihood - thus protection is at the core of all our programs.
Aangan's work begins when laws, state policies, community or parents fail to protect a child from abuse, violence, conflict, neglect and exploitation.
