CfD started Child Help Desk at Kalupur Railways Station in Ahmedabad City in collaboration with Childline India Foundation in 2016. This project is a joint venture of Ministry of Women and Child Development and Ministry of Railways.

From the beginning of September 2016 to August 2017, a total of 234(183 boys, 1 transgender, and 50 girls) children have been rescued by the child line team. In rescuing children we have received the support of the Railway staff, Police force, Coolies, Rickshaw drivers, Food stall staff and many others who are regularly visiting the Railway station.

Till date, 195 children have been rehabilitated with their families across India.

Besides the rescue and rehabilitation activity, the Childline team of CFD regularly carries out activities for sensitization of common people on the child rights and child protection on the railway platforms. We have celebrated Child rights day, Children’s day organized campaigns for sensitization of people at the Railway station about the potential risks the children face within their families, their surroundings, and possibilities of their abuse and violation with them. A club of rescued 32 children is formed, where the team imparts knowledge of life skills and carry out other recreational activities in a space provided by the office of Divisional Railway Manager, Ahmedabad.
