The objective of the National Meet:
o To provide a platform at national level for children to articulate their issues, identify
solutions, and formulate demands for addressing the same.
o To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of CHILDLINE, in a manner, which will help, deepen and strengthen CHIDLINES's work with children in emergency situations.

169 children from 57 cities and towns from across the country attended the meet. The National Meet provided an opportunity for the children, to share their concerns in the areas of health, education, labour, trafficking, protection, institutional care and housing and basic services.
The meet concluded with an interface between the children and the allied system, and recommendations such as forming children's forum and electing a child representative in the parliament who would bring their problems into focus were put forth.

CHILDLINE launched the jingle "Dus, Nau, Auth." on this occasion.
The jingle was a huge hit among the children and adults alike. One could just not help but dance to the song.
