Act for Children
Act for Children is an initiative by ActionAid India to ensure children in marginalised and vulnerable communities have access to their basic rights especially education, healthcare and protection. The initiative is aimed at creating an enabling environment for children so they may enjoy a childhood all children deserves.
ActionAid India works with grassroots allies to address issues related to the protection, nutrition and education of children, while supporting rescue and rehabilitation of children who are victims of crime. We work to empower communities to remain vigilant against the risk of child sexual abuse, child trafficking, child marriage and child labour while facilitating shelter, counselling and education support.

Testimonials & Success Stories
My dream is to become a doctor, but I had to quit school due to lack of money. Thanks to ActionAid and Antaranga, I’m back in school after passing the entrance exam at Odisha Adarsha Vidyalaya Samiti (OAVS).
I am able to participate in many activities at school ever since I joined ‘Bal Manch’. (‘Bal Manch’ are children forums formed and strengthened by ActionAid to help children address their issues and also become confident.)
