Flood of unparalleled magnitude in Bihar has affected 5 million people, many children orphaned and separated, resulting in multiple risks and becoming an easy prey to the traffickers.
A natural catastrophe of unparalleled magnitude in Bihar has affected 5 million people in 7 districts of Bihar. Around 330,000 people are currently living in rudimentary conditions in 350 relief camps. Many children, adolescents have been separated, deserted or orphaned, resulting in vulnerabilities towards trafficking and abuse. The project will target separated/deserted/orphaned children and adolescents through its recovery cum rehabilitation/reintegration program.
(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.
The vulnerable children guaranteed a life with dignity, freedom, non violent environment and an enabling environment for their moral and social development.
This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
