HCHW is a registered nonprofit organization working with children living on streets and in other difficult circumstance. We are running a full fledged Residential Care Centre providing 24 hrs care and support to 57 children in crisis.Two years back we have scaled up the program to include and address the issue of preventing children from coming on streets. We are running a full fledged Day School providing CBSE education to 236 children from such background who have not been attending any school
While reaching out to children at risk, we have found that they are from poor socio - economic background, living in the slums. All the children belong to families who are either below poverty line or where the family income per month is less than the minimum wages. In families, both the parents are daily wage earners with no guarantee of work. They are living in extreme poor housing and sanitary conditions and lag far behind in terms of household possessions and social entitlements.
It is believed that engaging and imparting education to children is the best option to address the issues of protection, well-being and safeguarding their rights. We believe that education is the non-negotiable right of every child. Education is infact the only ladder for the growth and prosperity of human beings. The goal of our project is two-folded - while the focus is on educational mainstreaming of these children, the underlying concern is also the protection and safety of children.
At present education is imparted to the poor and neglected children at free of cost and It is decided that the necessary funds required to operate the school will be raised through sponsorship support from local and international donors - individuals and organizations. A period of 2-3 years is earmarked for the full-fledged set up of school with all systems in place and a strong back support of donors sponsoring all the children in school.
