Child Protection

Fighting to end the scourge of child labour and sexual exploitation, the most horrible of crimes.

Grant Portfolio

In the last few years, the child protection portfolio has evolved to focus on strengthening the available child protection ecosystem and services. CIFF’s investments will prevent abuse and exploitation of children, encourage child participation, and strengthen existing systems of safety and care by building capacities along the continuum of care.

In India, our child protection investments are premised on government priorities and policies and therefore aim to:

  • Prevent all forms of violence on children (online and offline e.g.) and strengthen the continuum of care (psychosocial concerns, alternative care etc).
  • Provide demand driven technical support to National, State and District administration including autonomous bodies to strengthen systems (e.g. child budgeting, tracking systems) etc.
  • Strengthen existing systems and build capacities of community-based mechanisms, such as, child protection committees at block, village, and district levels and other stakeholders to recognise and prevent violence on children



Current multi-year investments can be explored below.
