MoU signed between BBA and RPF to protect children from trafficking
Under the MoU, 'Bachpan Bachao Andolan' will support RPF by sharing appropriate communication material, creating awareness through voice messages and video clips etc. These messages and video clips will be played regularly in trains and at stations.
