CARPED reunites missing children with family

Hundreds of children go missing every day in the country and Andhra Pradesh accounts for 4 lakh every year. Most of the children go missing due to abduction by family members and others. Children who run away from home and those who get lost too form a major chunk.

Out of the whole lot only 30 per cent get a chance to be reunited with parents but not all are lucky. Maximum children are often exploited and abused.

The unlucky ones get into the trap of smugglers and drug dealers. These children are invariably inducted into prostitution, drugs and narcotics smuggling. Some are forced to become beggars and are employed in brothels.

NGO Centre for Action Research and Peoples Development (CARPED) is committed to reunite misplaced kids with their parents. Till date CARPED has reunited 150 children

There are also a great number of children who run away after facing difficulty in schools and homes. Bringing cheers to the parents, a NGO Centre for Action Research and Peoples Development (CARPED) is the committed to reunite misplaced kids with their parents.


“we feel happy after saving children from exploitation and we reunite the children as per Juveniles Justice Act after informing and obtaining permission from child welfare committee”, said M S Chandra, Director of CARPED.

A twelve-year-old Taqvim of Murada Nagar in Asif Nagar had gone missing when he went to pray in mosque on May 21. His parents tried a lot to find the boy but their efforts proved futile. In this backdrop, Chandra traced the boy in a hotel at Gulbarga. This is not a case of Tagvim alone CARPED rescued and reunited 150 children with their parents. Chandra says “it is a difficult task to trace out missing children as parents provide inadequate information.

The Vijaynagar colony corporator Mosin Parveen has helped us a lot to trace Taqvim. The kid’s parents and grandmother are in jubilant mood after having phone conversation with Taqvim.” He added that he convinced the hotel management and arrangements are on to reunite the boy with their parents soon.

When a child goes missing, police do not register FIR as cognizable offence. CARPED reunited as many as 150 missed children with their parents so far. The NGO raided a circus company in Chittoor recently and liberated 29 children including nine Nepalese.
