Innovative, transformative and holistic, our award winning community-based child centric Bal Mitra Gram™ (BMG™) or Child Friendly Village model is a one-stop solution for holistic child protection working on the ground among vulnerable communities to prevent exploitation of children including child trafficking, child labour and child marriage besides addressing other cross-cutting issues of education, child sexual abuse, water, sanitation, hygiene and livelihood.

Besides rescuing children engaged in labour and playing an active role in thwarting child marriages and trafficking, the BMG™ Division has been working round the year to ensure there is no disruption in education of children by getting them enrolled in schools. The Division also ensured distribution of mobile phones to children from remote areas so that they could continue with their online mode of education.
