Our History

Railway Children India was established in 2013 as a non-profit organisation under Section 8 of The Companies Act, 2013 with a vision to ‘create a world where no child ever has to live on the streets.’

Across the world millions of children are forced to survive alone on the streets. In India, every five minutes a child arrives alone at a railway station. Immediately, they face violence, exploitation, trafficking and abuse. These children make money any way they can, scavenge for scraps of food and sleep huddled together in groups for safety. Their lives are typified by violence and often cut short.

We are working to change this. For good.

Our vision is to create a world where no child ever has to live on the street.

NGO Child India

Our Approach

Our mission is to ‘create and enable sustainable changes in the lives of children living on the streets’. We are currently working at seven railway stations across five states in India where we race to reach these children as soon as possible. Whether they are on trains or have just arrived at the stations, our early intervention can keep them safe and prevent them from slipping in to street life. Then we work with the child to find the best possible long-term future for them, whether that means being reunited with family or settled in a child care institute.
