25 children from crime prone slums and single parented/deserted/parents in conflict with law/in prison/extremely poor will be provided with safe shelter, food, clothing and quality education. Since the parents/guardians of these children could not care for these children due to their circumstances and poverty, the children are prone to different forms of abuse. They are influenced by the criminal behaviour of their friends and adults. The aim is to protect these children & give a bright future.


The children in the crime prone areas are vulnerable to abuse due to their difficult circumstances.This is more so when the child is single-parented or when the parent is in conflict with law. They are influenced by the juvenile attitude of friends, by the arrests of parents and forced to discontinue their studies.The impact of neighbourhood and friends who involve in activities conflicting with law determine the child's attitude too. The children are either abused or become juvenile delinquents


The children's safety is the first priority. Mentoring them in a safe environment and educating them will protect from abuses and prevent them from becoming juvenile delinquents. The project aims at giving them a feeling of belonging and affection. The children are provided with a nutritious meal, decent cloth, medicines required & safe shelter. They are sent to the school nearby and are coached in the evenings. They are also provided with life skills to face the world once they become adults.

Long-Term Impact

The project will raise 25 citizens with confidence and courage. Children are mentored and motivated to build a bright future for themselves and people around them. The children who come from a crime prone background are saved from juvenile delinquency and child abuse. This in turn will save their generation from involving in activities that conflict with law. This is a contribution towards a crime free society.
