Many long-distance trains go through Jaipur, making it a hub for tourism and trade and an attractive destination for young runaways.

In collaboration with other NGOs and the railway police, FXB tries every day to intercept these children upon their arrival at the station.

They are then placed in temporary care facilities while contact is made with their families to arrange for a reunification. If the negotiation is successful, the children are returned to their hometowns and cared for by protection committees set up by the government to ensure that reunification takes place in the best interests of the child.

If family reunification isn’t possible, FXB and its partners work to place them into government programmes.

The Shelter welcomes 20 to 40 children from the streets and slums around the city every day. More are in need of support. Help us help them!
