Poverty, urbanization, rapid economic growth, the breakdown of families, and domestic violence are the most immediate causes for it. The street children in Vellore are at the risk of disease and abuse and exploitation. Once they are on the streets, they are off the radar screen for government, and public safety nets. This project will facilitate them to come up in their lives.

Solution

CARE will provide 300 street children in Vellore with alternative education, vocational skill training, and nutrition, physical and mental health care including counselling, art therapy, music theatre, health, social and life skill training, and entrepreurship skill training.

Long-Term Impact

A few out comes: School dropout rate reduced to o % from 25%. At least 70 children aged 16-21 are working and earning sufficient income for their livelihood. Early health seeking behavior increased by 80% among the street children aged 5-21 years.
