The work of Vidiyal is recognised by the Indian government, the police and agencies such as UNICEF for its work on the rights of children. Due to the experience of working within the slum communities, Vidiyal is operating “Childline” Madurai, which rescues children from forced marriages, child labour, trafficking and violence.

Vidiyal operates a Reception Home which is used to house and care for rescued children until a solution can be found to their situation. While at the Reception Home there are opportunities for play, study and life skills, while the love and acceptance they receive often has the biggest impact on their troubled lives.
