Groups of children in 80 villages of Sandeshkhali I in North 24-Parganas are helping prevent abuse and trafficking of kids hired as domestic help in cities.

From passing on information to the village authorities about vulnerable classmates to intervening and counselling parents, the children are actively involved in bringing about change. The older and more experienced among the children train the newer members.

The children’s groups, along with child protection committees – comprising panchayat representatives, anganwadi workers, teachers, health centre workers and children – and NGOs, have been able to stem the drain of minor girls to cities as domestic help, where they are often abused and tortured. Some rescued girls have also joined the children’s groups.
