Story

Some of us Ex-Indian Army Officers, along with other concerned citizens, have started a Trust called Swakshatra, with a broad based mandate to work for the welfare and safety of Children and Women.

 Swakshatra, a word of Sanskrit origins, means Innately Strong and Self Powerful. This is our vision for every woman and child, and we seek to work towards this vision, primarily by engaging in Child and Women Safety initiatives including Anti Human Trafficking activities.

Towards this mandate, we have the following programs undertaken by Swakshatra:
Program 1: Short-stay Shelter for Girls at Risk, in the age group of 6 to 16 years, intended to house high-risk profiles such as victims of child sexual abuse/ assault, victims of various forms of trafficking, children rescued from streets, children rescued from various forms of neglect and any situation that may inhibit the exercise of basic child rights.
Program 2: Training in Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) Awareness and Women Safety.

The Short-stay Shelter mentioned above, has been commissioned with effect from Apr 2016, and with effect from Jun 2016, we have received various risk profiles of girls routed by the Child Welfare Committees.

It is for this Short-stay Transit Shelter, that I seek your support. Our operational expenditure to house 12 children is approximately Rs 1,00,000/- per month.

Over the last one year, we have successfully moved into long-term rehabilitation, 6 children. Presently we have 10 children at our Shelter, whose short-term rehabilitation is in process.

A broad breakup of this cost per month, is as below detailed:
Facility rental, utilities, staff salaries, conveyance, office expenses, incidental and miscellaneous - Rs 58,000/-
Food, essentials and medicinal expenses for 12 child beneficiaries and 2 caregivers - Rs 42,000/- (at Rs 3,000/- per individual per month)
