ChildRescue is run by a group of individuals fired with a zeal for ensuring equal opportunities for all children, regardless of race, caste, religion, community or economic status. It is operating in various states in India, striving to implement the Child Rights Act 2003/05 for orphans, Street Children and children coming from economically desperate conditions.
We run Day Care and Night Shelters for children on the streets. This is our first level of interaction where we provide a safe haven for the children who work on the streets during the day and usually sleep out in the open. With our Shelters, children can find an open door where they will be given meals, washing facilities, medicines and a place to sleep.
Our Homes for Street Children and orphans ensure a safe environment where children can live along with their peers, are given food and clothing, cared for full-time, receive a good education. Our staff are constantly on hand to offer help, guidance and most importantly - love.
Shanti Niketan, our Non Formal School enables the children to take the National examinations giving them opportunities to continue for Vocational Training/ College/ University/ employment.
Through our Community Outreach programmes, we work directly with communities in villages or city slums. We seek to provide sustainable resources to help them become self-reliant. We organise medical camps to teach healthcare, hygiene and nutrition. We also help women become self-reliant by encouraging them to start their own small community enterprises. In villages we provide safe drinking water by boring Wells. We build Community Centres to give education for children and to help the women with income-generating projects. we also give poor families goats. We believe, by ensuring self-sufficient villages, these communities will not feel compelled to migrate to Goa and city slums.
Our Community Health Work Programme helps in improving the health, hygiene and quality of life for slum dwellers by providing health awareness & health education to illiterate & poor individuals; by giving medical attention to Street Children & orphans in slums; by organising medical camps regularly which provide health check-ups, medicines, doctor consultations, vaccinations & immunizations and give advice on Family Planning.
Through SCAN-India (Stop Child Abuse Now), the Advocacy & Intervention arm of ChildRescue, we provide sustainable, comprehensive services for children who are abused, children in need of care and protection and children in conflict with the law.
