There are about 75 boys at the Institute where U&I runs its Care program. Each of the boys has different needs - needs dictated by their physical, mental and emotional state. But the beauty of our program is that our staff knows these boys personally. They know how to make each child feel special. They know how to train each child so they become the best version of themselves. They know how to encourage each child in their giftings when it comes to art and craft.
Some of our staff have worked at the Boys' Home from the very start of U&I's operations. For nine years, they have been caregivers for these boys, most of whom have no way to verbalize their thanks.
But our staff at the Home just keep on keeping on. From training the boys to cut their nails to creating woven jute mats, the U&I team has poured into the boys' lives.
For these children, this personal attention changes their world. Most of these children have been abandoned and, for them, the U&I team becomes their family.
This Valentine's Day, let's remember that love comes in all forms.
Sometimes, the most unselfish shape it takes is in that of a social worker taking care of the smallest needs of a child who has no way of expressing themselves.
Thank you for supporting the needs of some of India's most vulnerable individuals through the U&I Care project.
