Tring Tring…! CHILDLINE Ringing

CHILDLINE is a national, 24x7, free, emergency, phone outreach service for children in need of care and protection, linking them to long term rehabilitation. Any child/concerned adult can call 1098 to access the CHILDLINE service any time of the day or night. Our ambitious endeavour to reach out to every child in need of care and protection begins with small undertakings, adding up to a series of well devised projects and plans across the country.
In a bid to allow every child access to an emergency helpline service, CHILDLINE continues to expand exponentially, each day. CHILDLINE 1098 initiates dialogue with children in need of care and protection and acts as a tool for change in the Child Protection arena.
CIF not only plays the role of listening to the voice of the child, but also plays the role of strengthening, molding and filling in the gaps of existing national child protection mechanisms.

A humble beginning in 1996, CHILDLINE has now grown into a national child protection service. Today, CHILDLINE operates in over 300 cities/ districts in 33 States/UTs across India. Read on http://bit.ly/1MplgXv
