Summary

Kasba Girls Home was established in 2007, and since then the home has offered a safe, loving family environment to girls from 5 to 12 years old, who were orphaned, abandoned, at high risk or from unsafe families. We wish to continue to to provide them sanctuary and offer them healthy diets, education counselling and a chance to have a childhood. HOPE staff also work to develop the creativity and talent of the girls through activities including sports, art and music and karate.

Challenge

In India, the education of girls is still underrated by parents of below poverty line families who prefer them to either earn money to support the family. Poverty, lack of parental care and consequent family disorganization are major factors responsible for widespread migration of these children to the city. Child marriage is still widespread in India, it is home to a third of the world's child brides and the second most dangerous country in the world to be born a girl.

Solution

Our goal is to ensure the health and well being of the girls and to ensure they receive an education by enrolling them in government schools and paying admission fees, admission fees and school supplies. The home regularly checks the health of the girls and makes sure that they receive necessary medical treatment. Many of these girls have been traumatised by their lives on the streets before entering Kasba Home and receive counselling both individually and as part of a group .

Long-Term Impact

HOPE's Protection Homes provide vulnerable children with a home away from home; a loving, caring and safe environment in which children can learn and grow into independent, successful and happy young adults. This allows them to rise out of poverty and will let them provide for their families health and well being.
