Hotspot operations: January 2014 – January 2023
The Freedom Fund’s Northern India hotspot worked in support of government systems to reduce vulnerability of children in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. It sought to enable sustainable freedom through collective action at the community level and supported survivor movements and community leadership to prevent child labour.
The Freedom Fund ceased providing funding to NGOs in 2021 due to Indian government restrictions on foreign funders. Until January 2023, Freedom Fund consultants provided technical support to former Freedom Fund grantees. This work has now concluded.
