Little Humans Campaign | Child Rights Organization | Leher NGO in India

Started in June 2014, and inspired by Humans of New York‘s wonderful ability to make us relate to people we would never know otherwise, we started our own campaign – Little Humans. An attempt to provide a space for every little face, a voice for every choice they make, whether it’s their favourite food or their worst nightmare.

We began with the belief that sometimes the littlest people have the biggest stories to tell. But how could we know that for sure? We didn’t. Until we stepped out, and began to talk to little children from all walks of life and with varying degrees of privilege to realise that these photo stories collectively expressed what it means to be a little human today.

Why are we doing this? Because, we are a child rights group who want nothing more than to create a safer/better world for children. Having shifted the tide towards prevention and not just protection, collecting such stories only helps us deepen our understanding of children and their needs, better still through new lenses. Yours.

Saanya (name changed), a 10-year-old girl, was rescued from begging in Mumbai, back in May 2016. Today, she and her sister study in a Municipal school in Ghansoli, Navi Mumbai. She is regular at a school and is good at her studies. In conversation with @Prerana’s social workers, she recalled the challenges she had faced while she lived shelterless along a roadside in Ghatkopar with both her sisters and parents. The family’s makeshift toilet meant four bamboo sticks on four corners tied together by tattered pieces of cloth and plastic. #LittleHumans #LittleHumansOfMumbaiStreets Leher Prerana Anti-Human Trafficking

Sixteen-year-old Akash (name changed) dropped out of school after his father’s death. He was 12 then. While he studied in an “ashram-school” (tribal residential school run or supported by the State) in Solapur, the situation compelled his mother to ask him to beg and later do menial jobs to make ends meet. Prerana under its Sanmaan project is now trying to reintroduce education in the life of this child. #LittleHumans #LittleHumansOfMumbaiStreets Leher Prerana Anti-Human Trafficking
