Challenge

According to UNICEF in 2018, India has an astounding 29.6 million orphaned and abandoned children. Orphans are put at immediate risk because they are often seen as a burden on relatives. Moreover, with the death of a parent, children experience profound loss and a heavy burden. These children are in danger of losing opportunities for school, health care, growth, development, nutrition, and shelter; in short, their rights to a decent and fulfilling life and future.

Solution

REACHING HAND has been supporting abandoned and neglected children develop educationally, socially, and emotionally as they prepare to step into their young adulthood and make a future for themselves. New Home does this by providing safe accommodation, quality education, nutritious food, necessary health care, emotional support, and life skills engagement so that they become independent & responsible future citizens of society.

Long-Term Impact

Currently, 'New Home' caters to the need of 55 children irrespective of different caste, creed, gender or religion by providing equitable and all inclusive facility for their overall development . We also plan to develop in these children public speaking and oratory skills and prepare them for a brighter future. Our future plans is to setup a well equipped school campus and educate many more children of age group 7-18 and welcome them into our HOME to achieve our dream of 500 boys and girls.
