OUR STORY

"Humara Bachpan" is a campaign on safe and healthy environment for young children growing up in urban poverty. The campaign aims at inclusion of child friendly components in the national and state urban development policies. The campaign is supported by Netherlands based grant making organisation, Bernard van Leer Foundation.
Humara Bachpan campaign traces its origin to Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India way back in November 2012. What started as an experiment in a small city has gradually emerged as a national movement spreading over 23 cities in 17 states of India reaching out directly to 35,500 children.
