Challenge

Don Bosco Nivas Trivandrum provides shelter and safety for 350 children every year. These vulnerable children are victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, child labour, negligence and abandonment. During Christmas season we have approximately 30 children who are not able to celebrate Christmas with their families. Life in general is tough for these children but due to the separation from their families, during Christmas season life becomes even harder for our children.

Solution

This project will provide nutritious meals, new clothes and necessities to 30 underprivileged children during Christmas season. We also want to give them a safe and meaningful Christmas. By being able to celebrate Christmas with each other, this project will bring joy and happiness in their lives and give them a chance to escape their otherwise harsh reality and letting them be children, as they should be.

Long-Term Impact

These children have been victims of different abuses and some of them have lost their hope of the future. This project will hopefully spark their hope again and give them a happy and meaningful memory that they can carry with them through their lives.
