Fall Forward.....

Best of Luck....
Best of Luck....

We all fall in our life, but then it becomes a learning experience for us to move forward in life. Working with vulnerable children have helped us learn their life stories. I would like to take your focus to the children/ Juveniles who for some or the other reasons violated the Indian Penal Code. In India these Children as per Juvenile Justice Act 2000 are called Juvenile with conflict with law (JCL) which are kept under observation to improve their behaviour.
CSA is also associated with one such home where we studied the reason behind children violating the Indian Penal Code. The prominent reason we found was Poverty, unemployment and all related circumstances. Along with the counseling efforts, we had to come up with some practical solution for the betterment of their life.

To let these children move forward it was very necessary that they get some income generating skills. Therefore CSA introduced short term Vocational Courses. We successfully done with an auto mobile course last quarter and helped children understand that money can be earned through respectable manner also. This batch's children motivated the other in-mates in such a way that they themself came to CSA for nomination for the next course. This time we had 11 children who showed willingness to go for Electrician course. The course stared in the month of August with 80% practicals and handling of electrical Equipments.
Children attended the course and completed it successfully their Job placement interviews are also due now and hopefully they will get jobs and will move forward in their life.CSA wishes best of luck to all these aspiring Youths of India.

Raising standards of care.....

workshop on child care
workshop on child care

Raising the standard of care in the child care institutes (CCI) /Orphanage is the core area where CSA is been working. Specially the homes where, children between new born to 6 yrs, old are taken care. Child care becomes at-most important in this initial stage. Many infants are Prematurely born or weak at the time of birth in such situation the care taker has to be hygiene conscious and should be aware of the DO’s and DON’Ts in such situation. CSA found that particularly in rural area where the care takers are not very much aware of hygienic habits which they have to adopt while taking care of babies. Therefore we conducted a workshop for child care at the homes where children below 6 yrs are taken care.

The topic covered through this workshop was sterilizing the vessels used for kids feeding, Proportion of milk formula and water for qualitative feeding, Care to be taken while feeding and hygiene in general. Some of the care takers were attending such type of training for the first time in their working condition. We have planned to have such workshop every quarter so that the care takers are groomed well to take care of the children, and these young kids will be as bluming buds to blossom in their life ahead.

Enjoyment in summer ........

 May and June are the most loved months In India by all the children!!! The reason is these are regarded as summer vacation i.e. "No school, No studies, No Homework, No tuitions ".


Children have plans for summer camp, enjoyment, Movies, outing and many more.....

Bbut this not the case with the children who are admitted in care home for some or the other reasons. Children have very less opportunities to enjoy in the compound wall of child care institutions.

CSA as every year have planned many activities in this summer vacation to make most out of it. Children were taken to Adventure Sports park. Where they enjoyed doing rock climbing, Trekking, Rope climbing, Rain dance, Swimming etc. this visit was the most memorable for many kids as most of them had seen these type of activities first time in their life. More over the cheerful atmosphere and the delicious lunch made them feel top of the world.

Some fungames like Musical chairs, Passing the parcel, singing and dancing were well received by all the children.
Not only this but some other fun loving activities like art and craft sessions, Cake and Ice cream making, Movie Screening filled the summer vacation with lots of colorful joy. Children are provided with in door play equipments. 

Instead of thinking what the other fortunate children are doing, children associated with CSA also had a fun filled summer vacation with a big smile on their face. This has filled CSA team with immense pleasure. 

A big THANKS to all our well wishers, donors and supporters like you, who makes this possible......
