“If you find any child in distress, immediately dial 1098”

Asansol Burdwan Seva Kendra as a Collab of CHILDLINE completed seven years of its existence in Burdwan District. Through 24-hours free emergency phone service 1098 for children in need of care and protection ABSK has been able to reach every block and panchayat under its area of operation and covered almost 4000 cases in approx. In partnership with CIF under Ministry of Women and Child Development, Govt. of India, ABSK is included in the national and state net works which provide immediate response to children in distress and facilitates rescue and restoration of children to their families or to different homes for children. Since 2011, ABSK has started working with CHILDLINE to provide shelter or rescue the children in need of care and protection. Suffering children are segregated in two categories- one is CNCP i.e. children in need of care and protection, who are produced to CWC (Child Welfare Committee) for restoration and another is JCL i.e. Juvenile in conflict with law, who is produced to Juvenile Justice Board for mainstreaming.

Besides the legal support, ABSK also provide moral support to the children, such as any emergency medical care, educational support etc. ABSK is also giving a key focus on bringing to an end of Child marriage in the working areas and with the support of local police stations ABSK has succeeded to prevent so many child marriage cases. It has been a great learning for ABSK that so many children are in need of care and protection and with CHILDLINE; we have been able to help these children in years.
