Situation

Young children on the streets of Delhi are homeless, often without their parents, hungry, sick and mostly abused. Jamghat makes a positive difference to their lives by providing shelter, nutrition, education and recreation and an opportunity to lead a dignified life. The project will offer street children a better future through rescue, education and vocational training.

Solution

We will run foster care homes of 15 residents each for rescued boys and girls. The children will attend school, participate in play and hobby classes. All children will benefit from the round the clock mental and emotional support, a healthy diet and proper medical care. The vocational unit will give training opportunities for the older residents to pursue new skills for future employment and regular participation in theatre will provide a platform for creative expression and communication.
