This paper seeks to examine the role of Bachpan Bachao Andolan in protection of Child human rights in India. This work is based on secondary data mostly officials reports of Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA), National Commission for Protection of Children Right and National Human Right Commission. BBA is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) formed by Kailash SatyaRathi in 1980. Its main aim was to create a child friendly society, where all children are free from exploitation and receive free and quality education. Its main focus is on ending bounded labour, child labour and human trafficking, as well as demanding the right to education for all children. BBA became the first organization in India to highlight the issue and spread the wider south Asia coalition on child Servitude (SACCS). This paper also deals with the constitutional safeguard for Children in India as well as the various schemes for welfare of children. According to National Commission for Enterprises in unorganized sector (2007), the potential child labour pool in the country remains high as 45.2 million children. The non-governmental organization estimate the number of child labourers cumulate to 60 million, which is 6% of the total population of India.
