CHILDLINE City Coordination

In 1996, CHILDLINE India Foundation (CIF) launched CHILDLINE, the country's first toll-free tele-helpline for street children in distress. As of March 2015, total of 36 Million calls since inception have been serviced by CHILDLINE service and operates in 366 cities/districts in 34 States/UTs through its network of over 700 partner organisations across India and DISA is one among them to fight for the rights of children Gorakhpur.

Today, throughout the world, around 250 million children work, many full-time. They do not go to school and have little or no time to play. Many do not receive proper nutrition or care. They are denied the chance to be children. More than half of them are exposed to the worst forms of child labour such as work in hazardous environments, slavery, or other forms of forced labour, illicit activities including drug trafficking and prostitution, as well as in armed conflict. Despite the efforts taken by governments and other voluntary organizations, in developing countries, with high poverty and poor schooling opportunities, child labour is still prevalent. India is home to around 13 million child labours according to the census statistics.

DISA is the Nodal Organization of CHILDLINE, Gorakhpur since January 2006. We join with PGSS, Gorakhpur, the Collaborative Organization to manage the city coordination for the rescue, rehabilitation and other operational aspects of CHILDLINE program. This year CHILDLINE, Gorakhpur has attended.
