Childline at 15: Watching Over India’s Children

Childline, India’s first free, emergency helpline for children in need of care and protection turned 15 on June 20, 2011. What started as a simple helpline for street kids to call when in trouble in Mumbai has now expanded to 150 plus locations, across 26 states of India including the far south Andaman & Nicobar Islands. Childline processes over 2.5 million calls annually.
