Situation

With approx 200 street children in this area alone, there is a real need to provide an opportunity for these children to escape the dangers of the streets and offer them the chance they deserve for a happy and fulfilling life. Life on the streets presents a world of problems, with these children often subject to abuse and exploitation; turning to begging, stealing, prostitution and drugs to survive.

Solution

Our Sansar's home for street children will provide more than just shelter. With children who have had to face so many issues and hardships at such a young age it's really important that we provide the support of psychologists and social workers to allow them to work through these issues. We will ensure the children have the opportunity to gain an education; providing skills training alongside this will encourage these children to see options away from the money they make on the streets.
