Railway Children, India Charity Profile

The idea behind Railway Children began in 1993 when David Maidment, Chairman of Railway Children (former Controller of Safety Policy with British Rail), was on a business trip in Mumbai. David was deeply moved by the many street children he saw at the main railway terminal, and was haunted by the image of a 7 year old girl beating herself to elicit sympathy and money. On his return he researched all organisations working to help street children and saw a gap in the market, no one was focussing on early intervention. In 1995 Railway Children was launched, to stop the abuse of children living alone and at risk on the streets, through early intervention.

Railway Children works with over 45 partner organisations with 117 projects worldwide across Africa, Asia, and the UK. Last year we helped 25,571 street children around the world.
