Summary

We provide a long term, secure environment for disadvantaged and destitute children. We also recycle waste into useful and fun-to-use products that help rural women generate an income.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In India, there are innumerable vulnerable and destitute children from economically and socially disadvantaged backgrounds who are physically, mentally and sexually exploited and abused and often end up in a hopeless life of poverty and crime.

How will this project solve this problem?

The objective for Karm Marg (meaning path of action) is to provide these children with a long term, secure environment where they can realise their full potential with a sense of confidence. Also to train and help marginalised youth and rural women generate income to improve the standard of living for the entire family and community as a whole. Our home, is truly of the children, for the children and by the children with adult staff as friends and guides.

Potential Long Term Impact

Our emphasis is given on enabling young adults to become self-reliant. One of our proudest achievements has been that none of our children have gone back to the streets. We have been successful in reuniting about 35 children with their families. The alumni are leading financially independent lives. Some are now paid staff and trainers with us. Most of them still visit, guide and help the children as part of the Karm Marg family. They often make products, which we market for them.
