Bachpan Bachao Andolan
Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA) started in 1980 as the pioneer people's movement against child and bonded labour in India. BBA’s vision is to create a child friendly world, where all children are given quality education and are free from any exploitation. Working endlessly for holistic solution to child labour, BBA is actively involved with the community at many levels–from grass roots to advocacy for policy change with policy makers.
BBA has rescued more than 80,000 child labourers so far. In addition, BBA has transformed 317 villages in India into Bal Mitra Grams (Child Friendly Villages), rehabilitated over 5000 rescued children in its three rehabilitation centres and affected major policy changes through campaigns and judicial interventions.
