There has been considerable change already with support from donors, Government and regulators, we’ve been able to get identity/ other services to thousands of children who are linked to streets. In 2018, we launched the project ‘Surviving the Streets in India’. Our mission is to provide identity to 20 lakh street children in 4 states of India – UP, New Delhi, Maharashtra and West Bengal by 2020 and link 70% of them to education or a social protection scheme.
Through this journey, till now, we’ve been joined by Sourav Ganguly, Dia Mirza, Mithali Raj, Soha Ali Khan and Rajasthan Royals through the Street Child Cricket World cup, to spread awareness about this issue.
Our Artist Ambassador Dia Mirza has been a vocal Champion for Street-connected Children. Her support has lent the much-needed momentum to our campaign and has helped spotlight the agenda of these children. Watch her message in which Dia emphasizes why every child on the streets deserves an identity.
We cannot do alone whatever is happening for India’s street-connected children. We have to be in this together. We are thankful to various government authorities like NCPCR, WCD, members of public like you, donors, who have which have supported us this all along. You want to support the cause of street-children? You can do so by:
