Project Description

In a city full of street children sustaining themselves by begging, petty thefts and sleeping under flyovers, one often wonders why some children are denied a childhood. Lacking emotional and financial support from families (when they exist) these children seldom experience the basic joys of growing up. Disheartened by this sad reality, Wishes and Blessings aims to transform the lives of street children, by grooming, educating, and eventually integrating them into mainstream society. To initiate this journey, we launched a pilot project in May 2015, wherein we worked with 60 street children living in and around the vicinity of our shelter home in Nizammudin.To date, we have reached out to more than 500 children, out of which 260 have been enrolled in MCD/NDMC schools. The Street to School program takes into account three verticals- education, shelter, and food. Teachers carry out outreach and enroll homelessly and street children in the daycare center. Once enrolled, the children are served three daily meals and receive informal education. These verticals ensure that the children do not resort to petty theft or begging, and are no longer on the roads. The daycare center acts as a bridge between the street and the school. Once the children are ascertained to have received an ample amount of informal education, they are enrolled in the local NDMC/MCD schools.
