Providing Healing And Therapy To Children Who Are Survivors Of Abuse

Shalu (name changed) was found at a Bus Terminal by the police, abandoned and alone! As protocol dictates, 5 year old shalu was taken to the Child Welfare Committee (CWC), which gave the order for her to be sent to a Childrens’ Home. Finding herself in a new strange environment, shalu started to act out. She refused to follow instructions, would hit other children and was reported to be touching other children inappropriately.

The care givers at the home, desperate to curb this behaviour began scolding her, reprimanding her, but to no avail. She would cry, sob, hit and eventually stopped talking to all the adults in the home.

Most adults were expecting her to behave as young children are expected to behave; Greet, play and follow all that adults say. We could not see the pain behind the angry face, kept enforcing our rules and kept saying you’ll be left if you keep behaving this way.
Scared, lost shalu refused to follow, cried, sobbed and stopped talking to anyone. The result was yet again abandonment and this time with no one around, locked in a room, all alone.


" Adults failed to notice the pain hidden behind Shalu's Anger."


Our organization 'I Am', Nairatmya Foundation, is dedicated to nurturing positive mental well-being of children in need of care and protection. It believes every child deserves access to the protective factors to help them develop into a well-adjusted individual of the society.

We want to raise funds in order to provide that much needed healing and therapy for the children who are survivors of abuse and have been traumatized.
We are here to nurture the hearts of the children at risk and integrate them back to the society as well adjusted individuals.
 
So giving is not a donation, but helping in creating that positive shift in lives of these little people who are going to be our society's future.

Hi All,

We want to close this fundraiser and start another one, which supports the holistic development of children. Due to the COVID situation, we were not able to put in much effort into this fundraiser. And this amount will be utilized for the project.

So we are stopping the campaign for now due to the COVID situation and have started another campaign which brings in other components of development as well.

Thank you all for your support and contributions.
