Wouldn't it be great if we were not needed?

Thanks to Global Giving and all of you donors!

Hi Everyone!

Namaste to you all from the Gaya Rescue Project.

We are busy here day after day, week after week, and every year we reach out to more children than before. I often think wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was no need for us to be here at all but sadly we are needed more than ever these days.

Here is just one story picked at random from the 200 admissions in the last two-month period. We have of course changed the name.   

Raj Kumar  lived at Jabalpur (which is a  town many kilometres away  in another state called  Madhya Pradesh)  His father is a shopkeeper selling bags and he drunk every day.

 After drinking he would beat Raj and his mother. After yet another day of abuse from him his mother came  with Raj to her parents at Patna.

 She started her own business a beauty parlour and admitted raj kumar to a residential school.  After some days, as if Raj had not suffered enough at the hands of his own father , his teacher beat him with a metal pipe. In desperation, he ran away from hostel with 2 other boys and caught a train to Gaya. On the station platform, our team saw them and brought them to Rescue Junction where we provided the boys shelter, food and care and  later counselling along with thier mothers. On the evidence provided by the boys the abusive teacher has been dismissed without references as the children did not wish to press charges.

Finally, we restored them with thier families , but they will come voluntarily to Rescue Junction every three months for a year to follow up on our intervention. The principal of Raj’s school has been informed if any other teacher uses violence against a pupil the children can inform us on the toll-free number 1098 and action will be taken. A ChildLine poster has been put up in the school and Raj and his friends did a presentation at the school about ChildLine and how it can protect them.

All our much-needed services cost money and I would like to thank you for your support.

I have a special very important message.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IN YOUR CALENDARS.

A SPECIAL GLOBAL GIVING CAMPAIGN

 Great news: from 27 June until 8th August we are running a 50% match campaign called Her Voice, with USD 28,000/ GBP 23,000 available and matching donations at 50%, up to USD 1,500/ GBP 1,250 per individual donor per project while funds last.  

This campaign is dedicated only to projects in India that specifically help women and girls AND that work to end violence against women, and your project Special Initiative for Girls No Abuse for Life, project ID 9798 is eligible.

This campaign starts at exactly 14.00 British Summer Time on June 27th so if you could possibly go online at this time and make a small donation it will be matched at 50% which would be a fantastic help to support our work with the young girls at Rescue Junction.

Thanks as always for your interest in our work , for caring and for helping our work here at Rescue Junction
