The need is to support survivors of trauma to overcome nightmares, depression and suicidal feelings. To work with survivors in the immediate aftermath of trauma till their rehabilitation, protect them till they testify in the courts. The beneficiaries are children and adolescents from all over India. Many victims of caste violence also approach the project. The project every year affects nearly a thousand children and their families including the whole community living around them.
