About Bachpan Bachao Andolan
BBA was founded in 1980 by Kailash Satyarthi and a small group of like-minded individuals. Back then, the issue of child labour was unacknowledged by Indian legislation, in public discourse and by the media. BBA undertook this insurmountable task with great zest and zeal.
Though, eradication of child labour remains one of the biggest challenges for India, BBA successfully changed the fate of over 1,00,000 + children, rescued from exploitation while initiating action and raising awareness for anti-child labor and anti-trafficking laws.
