Aangan Trust

Grant amount: $139,302

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.

Grant amount: $28,080

Aangan Trust aims to prevent child harm due to slavery and trafficking, and to prevent re-trafficking of children rescued from trafficking and child labour. The Trust will undertake this work in four high risk communities in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Individuals empowered through the program will reach out to other parents and community adults in order to alert them to the risks of child marriage, child labour and trafficking, actively engaging them to prevent and respond to slavery and trafficking in their communities. These individuals also spread awareness about government assistance, schemes and programs so that families can access such assistance. The program provides data and insights which are shared with the state government to enable action around key child protection issues.
