We are dedicated to finding missing children and protecting children from all forms of violence and exploitation.

Roshni Helpline, is Pakistan’s first non-profit organization devoted to the cause of missing children. We operate a 24-hour nationwide helpline for reporting missing children cases, and conduct search and recovery operations through our network of volunteers and in collaboration with law enforcement agencies.


What we do 

We have a wide variety of programs aimed at providing critical support to missing children and their families as well as preventing children from going missing. Find out about how Roshni Helpline works to protect children throughout Pakistan.


Search and Recovery of missing children

We recover and reunite missing children with their families through an innovative neighborhood early warning system.

We have developed a vast network of thousands of volunteers working in a wide variety of public spaces, including street vendors, workers at roadside shops and restaurants, PCO operators, imams of local mosques, and members of the Khwajasira transgender community.


Gender Based Violence Survivors Helpline

The GBV Survivors Helpline aims to provide support to adolescent girls, especially those who go missing as kidnapped, runaway or lost.

Roshni Helpline provides the GBV survivors and their families with counseling, helping GBV survivor separated from family maintain contact with family members and with the help of referral partners providing them shelter, legal, financial and rehabilitation services.


Police Training and Capacity Building

We are commited to training and capacity building of law enforcement agencies with regard to missing children. In particular, we aim to strengthen police reporting and investigation of missing children cases. We have already conducted over 40 police training sessions throughout Pakistan and have trained more than 3,000 police officers.


Educating Parents & Children

Giving children the knowledge and practical skills they need to look after themselves are as important as teaching them to read and write. To ensure that children are learning these skills, we regularly conduct child safety training sessions in schools throughout Karachi. The sessions are age-specific and focus on a range of topics including stranger safety skills, cyber safety and assertiveness training.



Have you seen any of these children? If you have any information about them, please call us immediately. Our 24-hour nationwide Helpline number is 1138.
