Elaan was founded in 2004 as part of an endeavor to encourage dialogue on the issues of child sexual abuse (CSA) and incest. It functioned as a youth group for 3 years before being registered as an NGO on June 7th 2007 under the West Bengal Societies Registration Act of 1961.

Some of the issues that Elaan is addressing, and hopes to incorporate in future projects are –

  1. Parents Against Abuse (parent activism body)
  2. Education (rural and urban)
  3. Healing, Dealing and Surviving
  4. Juvenile Justice *
  5. LACSA (Law against Child Sexual Abuse) *
  6. Prostitution (adult sex workers, their rights and the protection of their children; also child prostitutes) *
  7. Human and Child trafficking *
  8. Children with special needs
  9. LGBT awareness and activism (sexual minorities)
  10. Trauma handling and disaster management
  11. Cyber crime and internet laws*
