Tough childhoods

Some 430 million children live in India. The country is developing swiftly, yet 40% of children have tough lives. They grow up in poverty and have no chance to be children.

Poverty, lack of proper education and cultural norms push many children to work at an early age. They work as house hold help, in mining, agriculture or fishing. Boys and girls are exploited in prostitution and child sex tourism. Child trafficking also occurs.

Many girls are forced to marry young. This way their families no longer have to take care of them and have fewer money worries. These child brides are often abused. We fight against child exploitation in India.

We also remove children from working in mines, the sex industry and other dangerous job situations. We provide them protection, care, education and legal support. We take action with governments and educate communities about children’s rights. Join our fight. Stop child exploitation in India.
