Railway Children

  • About

As a child rights organization, Railway Children India works for and with all children, with a focus on vulnerable children who traverse through & around railway stations across India. Over the last 25 years, we have protected more than 100,000 children across 35 railway stations and institutionalised child protection within the Indian Railways.

OUR VISION: We believe in a world where no child ever has to live on the streets.

OUR MISSION: Create and enable sustainable change for children living alone and at risk on the street.

  • Currently, our work involves direct intervention across 4 railway stations and 1 bus station across 3 states protecting 4000 children and getting them back to family.
  • Preventing 1400 children, across 5 slum communities of Delhi NCR, from slipping into street life.
  • Creating a safety net across the Delhi Howrah railway network, spanning 66 railway stations and 35 districts, that can protect 35000 children in the next 5 years.
  • As a resource organization for the Indian Railways, a key feature of our work includes training and sensitizing their staff on child protection, building a community of 5000 child protection champions, annually.
