In 2021, our team in India reached out to nearly 39,000 children across 7 states, addressing child labour, child marriage, child sexual exploitation and gender-based violence.The team also faced the severe second wave of COVID-19 and its after effects. Cases of child exploitation were on the rise, education was affected, and families plunged deeper into poverty. This further increased their vulnerabilities, specifically access to proper health care.
We adapted our project activities to suit the circumstances, working harder to stop child exploitation, all while ensuring emergency COVID-19 relief, and recovery. Our mass vaccination and awareness campaign was our biggest highlight this year, which reached out to over 400,000 people. Our team work, dedication and unending care for the children helped us in our efforts. We thank all our partners and donors whose support has been invaluable. This report highlights our work over the past year and we are happy to share it with you.
