mobile-appComputer engineer Shashank Singh and his colleague have developed a mobile application that traces lost children and re-unites them with their families.

Reportedly the initiative called ‘Helping Faceless’ uses technology such as ‘Face Recognition’ and data analytics to combat child trafficking and help a lost child connect with family.

Singh says, “We want to help the vulnerable street children with the help of data and technology.”

The mobile app, which can be downloaded from the Google Play store and installed by volunteers, aims to help vulnerable children by clicking their picture and guiding them to the nearest police station.

The volunteers work on a short and long term basis to help the needy children.
