In November 2014, ADMCF and Prerana, a Mumbai based partner NGO, launched Aarambh India, India’s first online resource portal against Child Sexual Abuse (CSA). The initiative acted to provide needed education on CSA and to support the implementation of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
Its vision is that of a country where children are protected from sexual offences, victims are rehabilitated and offenders brought to justice by the State. Towards this goal, Aarambh India advocates for protection of children from sexual offences through promotion of best practices, research, training and systemic change. The initiative benefits from Prerana’s 30 years of experience as well as ADMCF’s previous ‘Break the Silence’ work.
In 2017 Aarambh India received the National Award for Child Welfare 2016 from the government of India.
