Volunteers needed who will assist in the rehabilitation of street kids and offer social development services to them. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Families
Groups
The program aims to transform street children and poor orphans by providing basic needs like food, clothing, shelter, education, health, skills training, guidance and counseling and recreational facilities. The program has been serving humanity to touch the lives of children, who had no hope, and have given them an opportunity to flourish. We rescue, rehabilitate reintegrate children who are mainly abandoned, abused, orphaned, desperate, and neglected. We provide them with food, shelter, clothing, education, medical care, Spiritual and most importantly the family spirit full of love. That is the reason this place provides for a place someone can call a home and proudly identify with that place where people live together with love, peace and hope.

Children living on the streets need food, education, clothes, shelter and counseling and rehabilitation due to the effects of drug use and abuse and sexual exploitation that they often endure.

We run an education program with a kindergarten, remedial classes and school enrollment. We also cater for the medical needs of all our beneficiaries.

Typical day

Usual working days are Monday - Friday from 09:00 AM - 16:30 PM including the following tasks.

  • Protection and rehabilitation of street children
