Child Awareness Project started as a campaign to find a missing child. To reflect our beginning, our first focused awareness campaign, launched in December 2016, will tackle the issue of child abduction and trafficking. It is called #LostNotForgotten – a hashtag that will also accompany all posts relating to this campaign.

This campaign will have an active presence on our social media sites: Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.15390720_1451790034849985_6896129570141150995_n

As part of this campaign, CAP Interns & Volunteers across the country, assessed pre-existing views, spoke to experts and carried out campaigns.

Our interns, from across India, for this campaign included Aswini Ramesh, M Manasvee, Harsha K R, Aditya Chopra, Akhila V & Sakthi Priya.

They first set out to emphasise the need for such as campaign with poignant posts:


The next stage of this campaign involved assessing public views and beliefs about missing children. We did this by asking people across India 3 simple questions:

  1. How many children, do you think, go missing in India each day?
  2. What would you do if you saw a photo of a missing child?
  3. What would you do if a child you knew went missing?

Meanwhile, a couple of interns compiled information from various sources to prepare a guide for parents, teachers & children, with information about how to be safe. This was published into a guide.

Then, we set out to meet experts to find out what should be done when a child goes missing.

We have started a petition to request the Government of India to implement a child abduction alert broadcasting system, similar to the AMBER Alert, in India.
