As said in the brochure :
According to a scientific survey done by Rainbow Home Hyderabad and Pune Corporation, it has been proved that approximately more than ten thousand children in Pune are staying on the footpath. Either they are staying with their parents or without parents.
They are migrants from different parts of drought areas and either engaged in child Labourer or begging on footpath for survival purposed. Due to difficult circumstances, they are not only denied the right to education but also denied child rights like right to safety, right to survival, right to health, right to food, shelter etc…
Staying on footpath makes children’s life, especially girls life unsafe and many of them are facing violence and child sexual abuse incidence on road.
For their safety purpose, Pune Corporation along with Work for Equality has decided to provide safe homes for the children. Pune Corporation allowed to provide space in running corporations schools, where Work for Equality taking care of sixty girls. Under this place children not only live safely but also their rights should be protected and they become nurtured with dignity.
Currently, we have more than sixty girls and we are providing them education, Health, Nutrition and life skills. We need more support from generous donors like you to sustain the program.
