ABOUT THE PROJECT
Homelink Network System (HLK) is on the world wide web and proprietary software to capture the information of children at risk across India to assist and restore them to the safety of a Home. The YaR forum has two web related services for the young at risk: www.homelink.in and www.missingchildren.net and they are executed through 277 Homelink partners. These Network Partners are NGOs, Govt. Homes hosting children, Police, CWC, etc. spread out in 15 States & UTs of India.
Homelink is a web based service maintained by Don Bosco YaR forum to facilitate their work for the young at risk, enabling them to maintain and share up to date information on child related issues, across the country. The system generates instant reports based on child profile, missing children, staff centres, and various analyses of reports at local and national level. It is a software tool for documentation.
To help find the missing children, the network Partners use the other website:www.missingchildsearch.net. Created in association with UNICEF, the site has become a real boon for parents and organizations interested in locating or restoring the missing child.
The moment a center gets the details of the missing child , it is placed on the website. The site immediately generates a search in a local and national database, which has the registration of the missing children complaints. Homelink Network Partners at various locations in the country are alerted and they swing into action for locating or restoring the child. Families and agencies get in touch with Homelink centers either in person or online and sometimes missing children are located within hours.
