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.
