Organisation Description

Established in 2002, Aangan is an independent non-profit that works on preventing the occurrence and recurrence of child harm through a community based prevention model. The model aims to build protection systems geared towards increasing resilience of adolescents in most vulnerable locations or situations, reducing risk of harm from child marriage, child trafficking, hazardous work and abuse. Aangan implemented the program in 75 hotspots across the most-backward districts in six states (Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, West Bengal and Odisha). The work revolves around preventing child harm and keeping children safe from trafficking, labor, violence and exploitation in any form.
