    Story

    As well as working closely with the Christian Brothers on their street children homework school in Delhi we will also be working with:

    Nine is Mine campaign: An advocacy group that are tirelessly campaigning for the rights of the child in India and for a change in national spending policy, so to ensure that all children have equal access to health care and education. We will be offering some informal education to street children, offering homework support and companionship, and practically helping to organise the head office. We will also offer craft activities for the children to participate in.

    Sai Swayam Society: An NGO charity that works with the deaf and hearing impaired minority in India. Their founder, Mrs Meera Bhatia, works as an interpreter and national equal opportunities promoter. They also hold classes in basic literacy and numeracy skills and facilitate employment opportunities within national companies. We will be spending time breaking down barriers with these young deaf adults through games, shared meals, cultural activities and sports. We will also contribute to the charity by donating resources.

    Mother Teresa’s Homes: There are 2 mother homes within Delhi; one that is an orphanage and one that is a home for disabled girls. Both of these homes provide dignity and love, as well as much needed provisions for those whom Indian society has rejected. We will be working in the orphanage for disabled girls helping to feed the children, offer some informal craft activities and be able to spend 1:1 quality time with them. We will also donate clothing, toiletries and books.

    Salaam Baalak Trust: Are an Indian NGO that provide care and protection and support to street children and working children in Delhi. They have a number of contact centres and hostels within the city which provide all street children with the opportunity of education, safe accommodation and health programmes. We will be working in one of the hostels for boys, providing informal education
