Around 330,000 people are currently living in rudimentary conditions in 350 relief camps.

The project will target separated/deserted/orphaned children and adolescents through its recovery cum rehabilitation/reintegration program.

Solution

(a)Identification and registration of children separated, deserted and orphaned (b) care and support for them through child safety niches, (c) tracing of families, (d) rehabilitating into shelter homes or reintegrating into families.
