Providing Sanctuary

For the majority of street children, street life seems to them to be their only means of survival. As girls, they are exposed to pimps, violence, sexual abuse and communities that despise them through lack of understanding of their experiences and reasons for coming to the streets.

Rescuing children from the dangerous environment of the streets and offering them access to a safe environment is only the first step on the long road to recovery, but it is nonetheless a crucial one.

Through our dedicated team of field social workers and well wishers, including the Mumbai police, we offer children wishing to make a break from street life the opportunity to do so. At the ‘Home’, the staff undertakes the identification and rehabilitation process of each child in order to understand and address their individual needs.

We offer family counseling and parental job placement assistance, with the ultimate aim of strengthening the families so that girls can be reunited with their parents.
