History

PCVC started its work in Bihar in the year 2005 when large number of children were rescued in Mumbai and were repatriated back to their home state. In order to ensure that these children do not return back for work, PCVC started residential shelters in order to rehabilitate these children. This model was successfully run and demonstrated to the Government who then replicated this model in the state.

From here, it was realised that focus work needs to be carried out at the source front from where maximum number of children migrate for work. Along with this, it was also observed that many of the children who reside locally within the city, belong to extremely backward communities such as Musahar community, where most children are out of school and engaged in rag-picking. For this purpose, PCVC established its presence through the Focus Community Intervention (FCI) in Patna through work in rag picking communities of Musahar basti. Focus Block Intervention (FBI) is also carried out with main focus on rescue, repatriation and  rehabilitation of children trafficked for work in Motihari, Sitamarhi and Gaya, which are the high sending districts of Bihar.
