Aangan Trust promotes safe communities for children, building up child protection mechanisms in its working areas. With regard to modern slavery, working in districts of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, Aangan Trust strengthens the capabilities of communities and government agencies in giving help for recovery and reintegration to children who have been rescued or who have escaped from situations of violence and exploitation.
Built upon the belief that parents and youth are powerful resources in the community, Aangan Trust creates community freedom groups, parent networks, girls groups and boys groups that engage the wider community in preventing trafficking and exploitation through providing information on risky migration and forced labour, knowledge of laws and assistance schemes, and skills required to access these rights and services.
All the community groups work with government officials, and Aangan is establishing Community Help Desks to ensure that groups can activate government systems of support.
