CHILDLINE History - The Journey from 1 to 346

CHILDLINE 1098 SERVICE » History » The Journey from 1 to 366!

  • A humble beginning in 1996, has now become a national Child protection service.
  • A project initiated in Mumbai is now operating in 34 states / UTs & 372 cities across India.
  • CHILDLINE has responded to 36 million calls since its inception (June 1996 - as of today).

The critical question

How many children are a part of our target audience?
How many children do we effectively touch each year?

CHILDLINE History - The Journey from 1 to 366The scale of the problem is staggering - almost 200 million children need help. Ideally we should be targetting to reach 10 million children a year- that would represent a do-able goal and also end up ensuring a wide and positive impact on India's children. Needless to say, children who grow up with the security of knowing that help is a call away might grow to be more productive members of society.
