During these three years, DF has directly reached out to 23.1 million people through the Unmukt India project. Under this awareness and mobilization campaign about child begging, our founder, Ashish Sharma, the Foot Soldier covered more than 179 districtsduring his foot march across India. We are focusing onthe development of a mass  awareness tool so that  entire India can get benefits with cost effective ideas.

Why the issue of Child Begging?

After rescuing and rehabilitating nine children involved in begging,Ashish sharma, the founder of Duayen foundation felt the grave need of working towards the eradication of the issue from its very roots. He realized that the best way to do this is through framing of suitable policies which will require involvement of people from all responsible government departments on the ground level.

DF works for the empowerment of children involved in begging because these children are disproportionately affected by poverty and child trafficking; are pushed into rag picking ,child labor and are made the victims of  genetic research and several other criminal practices.They suffer fatal abuse and violations due to their lack of realization about their rights, and entitlements and also, restricted access and control over resources. In fact, we know from experience, that when equipped with the proper resources, these childrenhave the power to help the whole families and emancipate the entire community from poverty, marginalization and social injustice.
