Challenge

CHINAR started as a home for young boys and girls orphaned in Kashmir’s 15-year conflict. Its focus is psychosocial rehabilitation of orphans and vulnerable children in conflict areas. The children are given a home, foster mothers, quality education and psychological counseling to mitigate their trauma. Also, following the recent earthquake, CHINAR quickly mobilized funds and expertise to help the victims recover. Since the earthquake, CHINAR has helped 55 families build semi-permanent shelters

Solution

CHINAR’s goals are to assist orphans and vulnerable children by providing a home and psychosocial rehabilitation; empowering widows with skills training to build livelihoods; and expanding to help children in other conflict areas.

Long-Term Impact

Kashmir currently has more than 100,000 orphans, and a federal budget of $4/child/year. Widespread psychological trauma among the children means there is much work to be done to help future generations be prepared to build and develop their society.
