Why am I fundraising?
Daily hundreds of children (boy/girl) run away from their homes and land at various Railway Stations. Some of them also get trafficked basically girl child are trafficked for prostitution. Also the children get involved in the child labour where they are abused. A very small portion of the children only are able to reach back their family. Save a runaway child to become a potential street children.
This project is all about to rescue and resettle the missing and runaway children. We are also focusing on working children, begging children, hard behaviour street children and before those who are getting involved in various anti social activities. We are running this project at Khurda Station of Odisha State. We build strong network with all the Railway employees and Stakeholders. We sensitize them regarding our work for the needy children and the way they can also extend there hands for help.
For rescue of the children we do Outreach at platforms. Outreach workers of the Organization do patrolling at the platforms, in order to cover the railway station for maximum period of time in the day. After the child is rescued, she/she is brought to temporary shelter where is provided with food, good clothes, non formal education etc. Also provided with first aid services when necessary. This rescue operation is followed by counseling sessions till the child is safely hand over to there parents.In this counseling counselor comes to know about the child's problem and home address is also traced. Then after child is reunited to his/ her family. In case family address not traced or child don't want to go back home, SOCH refers the child to the Institution for further care and protection. SOCH being concerned about the well being of the child follow up is done after reunited with family. To know the child's status it is done after every one month and three months gap.
What do I plan to do with the funds?
With this funds we will be providing food to the children after they are brought to shelter. Good clothes will be provided to the children in need. Other necessary materials will be provided to them. Expenses like travelling for restoration of the child, telephonic expenses etc.
1. How we identify children?
2. How they get motivated to come to shelter with staff from platform?
3. Public enquire about, where the staff is taking the child?
