In the current situation, where abuses are prevailing to its maximum, raising our voices for the little ones is a must.
All around the world, and in India children face different sorts of abuses. Child abuse, which has many forms like physical, sexual, emotional, negligence, exploitation etc keeps haunting the victim throughout his life.

The 2013 national child abuse statistics showed an estimate of 79,000 children is victims of a child abuse and neglect. Children in the first year of their life had the highest rate of victimization of 23.1 per 1000 children in the national population of the same age.
