Indian children face the highest instances of online child abuse in the world
#SOS is a heartfelt intervention by anti-trafficking NGO Save Missing Girls and CyberPeace, supported by PVR Nest, to arrest the galloping pace of child online abuse in India.
It is an initiative to make children and their parents more aware and informed about the issue and offer them assistance and support. It is an effort to bring this horrific issue out in the open by sparking dialogues amongst students, parents, schools and to engage experts from varied fields like cybersecurity, governance, psychology, sociology, art, humanities and education.
It is a call to you, to join hands with us, and become an interventionist.
Because the children of India deserve better.
India’s children are no longer safe in their own homes and schools
Mobile screens turn our children into easy targets no matter where they are.
We are harnessing all possible media to highlight the shocking statistics and urgent need for intervention.

Build Communities and Start Dialogues
Online inappropriateness is often a precursor to offline sexual abuse. Either way, it robs our children of their innocence and trust, leaving lifelong scars that run deep. As parents, we cannot afford to look the other way. As schools, it is our responsibility to check this. As friends, relatives and family, we need to support the child but report the issue, to prevent the spread. As a community, and a country, we need to come together to address this crime our children, and create a support system that will tackle this issue with compassion, strategy, technology and legislation. No one can do this alone. Let’s do this together. At #SOS Community.
