SARD and Save the Children is implementing an important programme to bring change in the lives of street children who were engaged in rag picking or living on street. The Programme is able to mainstream more than 150 children from neighbouring slums and orphans, including open shelters.
Though Nehru Place is the largest IT market in India, it is also home to many homeless, neglected, orphan, substance and physically abused children who have migrated from various part of the country. In order to strengthen the protective mechanism and provide these marginalized and deprived children with a life of dignity and self-worth we have been engaged in guaranteeing their right to survival, right to protection, right to development and right to participation through various campaigns and activities
As per the organisers, they are committed endeavour to work with dedication on child rights and child protection, SARD has collaborated with Save the Children already on-going Aviva’s Street to School Campaign in the Nehru Place area of Delhi region with the aim to provide an overall development opportunity to street children and ensuring an enabling social and policy environment in India. We have collaborated with South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) who has provided space for setting up child resource centres in two of its school that include Modi Mill and Kalkaji B Block. It also caters to address their learning gaps, sensitize them on health, hygiene and protection issues for their better living. We also had engaged with different technical and vocational institutes to train these children parents and elder siblings on customised short duration trainings.
To continue momentum of this programme, we wish to organize few sensitization activities in Nehru Place market in close coordination with All Delhi Computer Traders Association (ADCTA), Nehru Place Market Association. During these activities, our volunteers will conduct few street theatre shows, put up exhibitions and mobilize the local shopkeepers not to employ any child labour in their shops etc. These volunteers will cover local shops, banks, commercial offices, Delhi Metro local restaurants, etc.
