Abstract: Child abuse and its myriad forms often go undetected due to the geographically distributed and widespread nature of the crime. The process of reporting is also long and is often used as an excuse to allow the proliferation of these activities. To prevent the crime from going unpunished, this paper introduces a browser based web application and a mobile application called Project Jagriti that uses the power of Crowdsourcing to ensure justice for the child victims. All reports of child abuse filed using the platform are forwarded to the Child Welfare Committee (CWC); a body constituted by the Government of India to oversee child welfare and expedite the process of recovery and rehabilitation of the victims. The platform also provides anonymity for encouraging users. � 2014 IEEE.
