Along with writing books and acting in films and theater, Nandana Dev Sen tirelessly promotes the cause of child protection: for over 25 years, Nandana has worked closely with children from troubled backgrounds. As an advocate and ambassador, Nandana works closely with children and grownups in RAHI (India's first organization to break the silence about child sexual abuse), the global children’s NGO Operation Smile, and with UNICEF. She collaborates with the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) as a Child Rights Expert and Juror for Public Hearings, and has been actively fighting to stop the crisis of child trafficking in India, with organizations such as the NCPCR and Terre des hommes foundation. Nandana was recently appointed as Ambassador, Apne Aap, which provides legal support and access to welfare, as well as income generating progams to at-risk and prostituted women and children (www.apneaap.org/). Nandana is also a Champion for End Violence, a partnership launched in New York by UNICEF which has an ambitious, comprehensive and evidence-based approach towards stopping violence against children across the world.
