Sahaara believes that every person has a dream, and our work centers around ensuring that marginalized persons are able to articulate and work towards achieving their dream. Children in juvenile homes are one of the most marginalized populations in Mumbai. The tracking program of children discharged from juvenile homes help children get a start which will help them break out of the poverty cycle and fulfill their dreams of a stable future.

Sahaara staff procures addresses of discharged children from the home authorities. The trackers then traverse through labyrinthine gullies of Mumbai slums searching for the children’s residences. Through such home visits, networking with local schools, facilitating assistance in books and materials, the child is facilitated entry into formal education paving the way to a bright future.

Niraj is one such boy who has regained his right to education by the interventions carried out by Sahaara's tracking personnel.

16-year-old Niraj lives in the suburbs of Mumbai  with his parents. His father drives an auto rickshaw for his living and his mother is a housewife. Niraj discontinued his studies when he was in the Grade 9. Due to peer pressure and bad company, Niraj got addicted to drugs and used to be involved in small thefts with his friends which led to his arrest. He was sent to the Umerkhadi Observation Home.

Sahaara staff met Niraj on one of their regular visits to the Home and realised that he is missing out on education. Niraj’s father had disowned him due to his bad habits. Our staff met his parents and spoke to them concerning Niraj’s education and future. They were willing to accept Niraj back. Our staff started counselling Niraj and completed all the formalities to ensure that he was released from the Home. Sahaara is now helping Niraj with admission in a good school so that he can continue his studies.

Through the counsel and guidance of the Sahaara staff, who is continually putting efforts, Niraj is now looking forward to join school in the coming academic year and his desire is to have a good job and a secure life. 

Your generous donations have enabled Sahaara to provide what is necessary for Niraj to continue his education and have an opportunity to dream of a better tomorrow!

Shweta is one such girl who has regained her right to education by the interventions carried out by Sahaara's tracking personnel.

Shweta, a 12-year old girl from a Maharashtrian family lives with her mother who works as a house maid. She is the only earning member from the time Shweta’s father deserted them in the year 2003. Due to financial constraints, Shweta’s mother applied for educational help at the Umerkhadi Observation Home.

As Sahaara is registered with Child Welfare Committee to track children who have discontinued their education, Shweta’s name was forwarded to Sahaara staff on their regular visits to the Home. Sahaara staff helped Shweta to get re-admission in Grade 6 at a school for girls who provide free education for the underprivileged children.

We desire to see Shweta’s complete her education and are helping her to continue her studies by tracking on her performance and attendance in her school.

Your generous donations have enabled Sahaara to provide what is necessary for Shweta to continue her education and have an opportunity to dream of a better tomorrow!

Jyoti is one such girl who has regained her right to education by the interventions carried out by Sahaara's tracking personnel.

A 16-year old girl from Mumbai, Jyoti comes from a Maharashtrian family. In May 2013, she had eloped with a boy to Nagpur. Her parents tried searching for her for a month, but after no success, complained about her missing at the local police station. On searching, the police found Jyoti with her boyfriend and brought them to the Umerkhadi Observation Home in Mumbai.

On Sahaara’s regular visit to the Umerkhadi Observation Home, our staff met Jyoti. On conversing with her, our staff realised that she was supposed to begin studying for her board examinations in this academic year. However, eloping with her boyfriend and now being in the observation home posed a hindrance in her continuing education. Realising this need, we decided to help Jyoti and got her released from the Home.

Due to the social stigma she was facing, Jyoti was fearful of going to school. We counselled and reassured her that she could still study. Jyoti is now confident and is going to enrol for her board examinations through distance education.

Your generous donations have enabled Sahaara to provide what is necessary for Jyoti to continue her education and have an opportunity to dream of a better tomorrow!

Arjun Pawar is one such boy who has regained his right to education by the interventions carried out by Sahaara tracking personnel.

Arjun, a 16-year old boy from Chembur comes from a Maharashtrian family. His father died when he was a young boy and he lives with his mother Swarna, who works as a house maid. He has one brother and one sister. One day, Arjun got into a fight with his neighbors and they registered a complaint against him at the Chembur Police station and he was to the Umerkhadi Observation Home.

The Sahaara staff met him at the Home and came to know his circumstances. Our staff person also went to his home in Chembur and met his family and the neighbors. During the interaction with Arjun, we came to know that he would be entering into Class XII next year, which is a crucial year in Indian education. Our staff counseled Arjun, his family and their neighbors and encouraged them to live peaceably with each other. Our staff also intervened on his behalf and helped in getting Arjun released from the Home. After being released from the Home, Arjun did not want to continue education due to the social stigma he was facing, but our staffs encouraged him and told him not to let his past define his future. After repeated visits and counselling to Arjun and his mother, Arjun finally agreed to continue his education. Sahaara also helped Arjun by providing him with the necessary stationery items for his studies. Arjun is currently preparing for his Class XII exams.

Your generous donations have enabled Sahaara to provide the educational expenses necessary for Arjun to continue his education and have an opportunity to dream of a better tomorrow!

Priti Dinesh Jadhav is one such girl child who has regained his childhood and the right to education by the interventions carried out by Sahaara tracking personnel.

Sahaara personnel met 15 year old Priti in the juvenile home. When she was brought to the home, she was studying in ninth standard. Initially she was unwilling to continue her studies due to the trauma and due to stigma her parents were not willing to take her back into the family. Through counseling and guidance Priti was able to come out of the trauma and realize the importance of education in her life.  Through repeated visits and interactions, her parents were counselled to accept Priti into the family again. After she was discharged from the juvenile home, the school authorities were reluctant to admit Priti because of the break in studies for a significant period of time. The parents were also tending to resign themselves to the inevitable and discontinue her studies. However after counsel to her parents, an explanation of the background to the school authorities and after procuring the bonafide certificate which was necessary for admission, Sahaara personnel facilitated Priti’s admission into the school in the 9th standard. Priti is now excited to be back with her friends and has regained the focus to fulfil her dreams.

 

Your generous donations have enabled Sahaara to provide the educational expenses necessary for Priti to continue her education and have an opportunity to dream of a better tomorrow!
