ChildLine is a government initiative about protecting children from or against any perceived or real danger to their life, their personhood and childhood. The larger objectives are:
reducing their vulnerability to any kind of harm – social, psychological and emotional.
ensuring that no child falls out of the security and safety net
if they are in danger making sure that they receive necessary care and protection and are brought back into the safety net.
We have observed that the majority of children who are provided assistance by CHILDLINE 1098, live without parental support and their families do not have dependable means of earning an adequate livelihood. Calls for help come from workplaces, railway and bus stations, streets, homes and neighbourhoods, and child care facilities.
