Rehabilitation of Street /Vulnerable Children through Residential Home
We often come across children loitering in the streets, train/bus stations, Signal joints, under the bridge in the cities and towns. These children are either orphans or neglected by their own families for various reasons. These children, especially girls are vulnerable to considerable risks like trafficking, molestation, rapes, child abuse, child labor etc.
These children do not have a safe shelter, often living on the walkways and platforms. They lack nutritious food, proper clothing, sanitary facilities, hygiene and education. Their physical and mental growth is compromised as the diet is not balanced. They are vulnerable to diseases living in the unhygienic conditions. They are ignored, abused and considered menace to the society. Unfortunately, these hard living situations affect their psychological development badly and they end up indulging themselves in criminal and illegal activities eventually.
The children we try to rehabilitate often come from the families with very difficult home situations that are not conducive for the child’s comprehensive growth. We run the home in the govt. school premises to help such children, providing all basic amenities and a secure environment. They enjoy all the benefits of being inside a regular school, including the activities and interactions with more privileged peer groups. This positive environment enables each child to grow and reach his/her full potential. As the name suggests, Sukanya Ghar is a home for the girls working towards uplifting their self esteem, self confidence and shaping their future by providing them the right atmosphere to grow, nutritious food, clothing and the right education. Sukanya Ghar ensures safe and happy childhood for these vulnerable girl children who were living on the street.
