About This Cause

In 1988, Mira Nair's film Salaam Bombay rendered a raw depiction of the vulnerabilities of living on the streets….. It struck a chord in the hearts of compassionate citizens, who identified the mine of potential in India's street children. This small group lost no time to create a space in the form of a Trust where young street boys and girls could feel secure and could breathe hope. Keeping in tandem with the nature of the children, the name 'Salaam Baalak Trust' which literally translates into salute the child seemed befitting.

For the past 30 years, Delhi-based Salaam Baalak Trust (SBT) has been dedicated to the care and protection of street children, regardless of caste, color, creed or religion by living or working in and around railway station, at crowded bus stops, slums, congested business and tourist areas. From 3 staff and 25 children on a balcony of Ground Reserve Police at the New Delhi Railway station, SBT has now grown to over 250 staff, providing support services in Delhi & NCR region. SBT currently functions through 13 Contact Points/ Day Care Centers and 6 Shelter Homes, which provide a holistic child development package. SBT also manages 1098- emergency Child helpline a toll free number to reach out to children in distress at any point of time.
