INSPIRING STORIES FROM OUR GIRLS HOME

By Tanya Alag | Head resource Mobilization

Raveena - girl child from the Arushi girls home
Raveena - girl child from the Arushi girls home

 

 

Salaam Baalak Trust Delhi (SBT) started as a daycare centre for street children. Over a period of time, we realised that a safe space is the most critical need for any child to realise their full potential. Thus, we started residential programmes to provide a safe and child-friendly shelter for children rescued from the streets and any other distress situations. Compliant with the guidelines of the Integrated Child Protection Scheme and Juvenile Justice Act 2015, we have two Children's Homes for Girls, two Children's Homes for Boys and three Open Shelters for boys to provide 24/7 care and protection services

.Aarushi Children Home for Girls

Aarushi Shelter Home was the first full care centre catering to the needs of girls rescued from the streets. They long for a safe and secure space where they can sleep peacefully during the night.

Since 1999, Aarushi CHG has been providing a safe and child-friendly space for girls rescued from the streets and distressed situations in and around Gurugram. The Home provides shelter to 50 girls at any given time. It is well-equipped with all the facilities and amenities such as classrooms, a play area, dormitories, and a computer lab among others. Aarushi Centre remains one of the model child-care institutions operational in Haryana. It functions under the provisions of the Juvenile Justice Act and comes under the jurisdiction of the Child Welfare Committee of Gurugram, Haryana.

 INSPIRING STORIES:

Raveena (name changed) came to Aarushi Children’s Home,
in 2020. Her mother passed away and father used to abuse the child
sexually. The Child was then pregnant. It was a trauma for all the siblings. So, she along with
her three younger siblings, she was shifted to Aarushi Children’s Home, Salaam
Baalak Trust through the Child welfare committee for care and protection.
Child was initially very stressed and she was given proper mental health support.
She delivered a baby who was sent for adoption. After that she was enrolled for
Non formal education. The Child was keen to learn new things. So she was
encouraged to participate in the activities at the center. Later she was enrolled in the National Open School in the 10th grade. She was keen in learning housekeeping, so with the support of another organization - She completed her training. Presently she is working in IBIS
hotel, Mahipal Pur – Gurgaon.  She has been rehabilitated after living in Aarushi for 3 years. 

Kareena (name changed) came to Aarushi Children’s Home, Salaam Baalak Trust in
2020. Her mother passed away and father was a drunkard. Her elder sister is
married and condition of the home was not safe for the child. So, her sister
produced her in front of Child welfare committee. After proper Social
Investigation report obtained by Police, Child Welfare Committee ordered the
child’s to stay at Aarushi Children’s Home.
The Child had many behavioural issues because of the trauma she faced at home. But
after the efforts made by team she settled in gradually. She had no interest in
studies but teachers used creative ways to make the classes interesting. She
started taking interest in studies. She was enrolled in nearby school - Kitty garden senior
secondary public school. Today she completed her 8th grade with a 84%. She is a hard working
child and aspires to become a lawyer.
