In 2002, Suparna Gupta founded Aangan, with the commitment to protecting the most excluded, isolated, vulnerable groups of children. In 2006, she developed a unique model to partner with state governments across the country to make Aangan the first non-profit to access hundreds of state-run institutional facilities for rescued, trafficked and other vulnerable children all over India. In 2009, Suparna extended the organization’s work to identify children in dangerous situations with a view to preventing occurrence and recurrence of serious child harm. By 2014, this had been developed into an integrated model for child harm prevention and is currently implemented in 39 locations across the country. She has co-authored reports (Changing Spaces 2006, See You Again if I Survive 2007, A Real Opportunity for Change 2010) and led the development of training/empowerment tools for parent/caregivers and children.
