VIKALP was conceived to lend much needed support to Childline and to enable the needy people to find alternatives to problems. At that time, Childline - an emergency helpline service for children in distress was still in its explorative stage in Goa. Accordingly, Vikalp was constituted as a Public Charitable Trust on August 1, 2000 and registered at Margao under No. 1979.
VIKALP, a term of Sanskrit origin, means Alternatives.
Disadvantaged sections of society in all terms, irrespective of caste, creed, religion or colour. Special focus on women and children in distress.
