Aarambh aims to make child protection a collective responsibility by focusing on building expertise of citizens and agencies through intensive trainings, case management and providing access to information on child sexual abuse.

Aarambh is a centralized platform where one partner with innovative ground programs, share work & knowledge, and connect to national and international experts for taking the cause of child sexual abuse prevention to a tipping point.
