Through this CSR initiative, the radio station will share real-life stories of brave survivor and plight of many other children who are still waiting to be rescued. Creating right noises for the cause, RED FM along with Mr. Satyarthi hope to eradicate child labour and child exploitation by educating and mobilizing the masses. Committed towards building support and expanding the scope for child protection, this initiative will focus on providing large-scale support for the rescued and rehabilitated children of India.

We conduct this CSR campaign every year in all our markets and stations supporting multiple causes relevant to that region like education for sex workers' children in Mumbai, installation of sanitary pad vending machines in 50 government schools in Kolkata, fundraising for abandoned kids in Delhi and this year child protection against exploitation of all kinds across India. We believe our collaboration with Mr. Satyrathi's 'Surakshit Bachpan' initiative, will effectuate a positive change in the lives of young souls, wherein we will gift them a life which they deserve to live."

Such holistic physical and mental security will protect them from all kinds of untoward incidents. This initiative will help us to push the message of child protection to the masses.
