Butterflies is an Indian organisation established in 1989 that protects and empowers the most marginalised and economically vulnerable children, in particular street and working children in India. Two key values that underpin Butterflies’ work are children’s participation in decision-making processes and deinstitutionalisation of children’s care.  The project aims to prevent violence against children from homeless and vulnerable families by establishing a sustainable child social protection system.
