CHILD PROTECTION

We provide several innovative programs that provide street children the assistance, training and resources to make a successful re-integration into our society. These include:

STREET INTERVENTION: Our staff and volunteers literally go to the streets and marketplaces to locate street kids. Through extensive training, the staff can identify these kids from general population because they often blend into the crowd for their own safety. Street intervention encompasses: 

  • Befriending street kids and letting them know that there are caring adults who are concerned about their well-being and want to see them safe and successful.
  • Providing vital information regarding available resources to meet their needs, including education, health and other support services.
  • Providing food, clothing, hygiene products, blankets and other comfort items.
  • Harm reduction counseling to address the risk associated with street life.
  • Providing social events: movies, picnics, daylong activities birthday parties etc. to help kids build foundation away from the street.

DROP IN CENTER INTERVENTION: This provide a safe and protective environment for street kids. It’s a safe environment for kids to relax and escape the dangers of the streets. Some of the kids often spend most of their time sleeping because they are safe from harassment, theft and physical or sexual harm. At this center, the kids receive meal in the evening, take a shower, wash clothes, play video games and speak with counselor or nurse. It also serves as a place to make a meaningful relationship with caring adults.
