25 children who are from crime prone slums and are semi-orphaned/single parented/deserted/parents in conflict with law/parents in prison/extremely poor will be provided with safe shelter, food and clothing. Since the parents/guardians of these children could not care for these children due to their circumstances and poverty, the children are prone to different forms of abuse. They are influenced by the criminal behaviours of their friends and adults. The project aims at protecting these children
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The children in the crime prone areas are vulnerable to abuse due to their difficult circumstances.This is more so when the child is single-parented or when the parent is in conflict with law. They are influenced by the juvenile attitude of friends, by the arrests of parents and forced to discontinue their studies.The impact of neighbourhood and friends who involve in activities conflicting with law determine the child's attitude too. The children are either abused or become juvenile delinquents
How will this project solve this problem?
The children's safety is the first priority and mentoring them in a safe environment will protect them from abuses and prevent them from turning into juvenile delinquents. The project aims at giving them a feeling of belonging and affection. The children are provided with a nutritious meal, decent cloth, medicines required and safe shelter. They are sent to the school nearby and are coached in the evenings. They are also provided with life skills to face the world once they become adults.
Potential Long Term Impact
The project will raise 25 citizens with confidence and courage to build a bright future for themselves and people around them. These children are saved from juvenile delinquency and child abuse. Which in future will save their generation from involving in activities that conflict with law. This is a contribution towards a crime free society.
