Suresh Prabhu launches mobile app ReUnite to trace missing, abandoned kids

Commerce and Industry Minister Suresh Prabhu on Friday launched a mobile application — ReUnite — to trace missing and abandoned children in India. “This effort to reunite parents whose children have gone missing is a wonderful use of technology to address real-life social challenges,” he said.

The app is multiuser where parents and citizens can upload pictures of children, and provide detailed description like name, birthmark, address, report to the police station, search and identify missing kids.

It is India’s largest movement for the protection of children and works along with law enforcement agencies and policymakers. It was founded by Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi.

BBA has played a very important role in the formulation of several laws for the protection of child’s rights. It began during the Nithari case in 2006 which finally culminated with the Supreme Court passing the landmark judgment in 2013 ordering that FIR has to be lodged in all cases of missing children.
