Asha Grih

Asha Grih, a project of Believers Church, is a home licensed with the government of India for runaway and orphaned children found on the streets of New Delhi.

The home helps these children recover from exploitation, begging and child labor by giving them protection, love, and development opportunities. Children are enrolled in the home through the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) of Delhi Government.

If it is in a runaway’s best interests, Asha Grih will try to reunite them with their family. Otherwise, they can make their home at Asha Grih.

Life on the Streets

No one really knows how many street children are in the world. According to UNICEF, it could be up to 100 million. Yet, there are comparatively few trying to help these children.

Most of the people searching for kids on the street want to exploit them. Greedy gang leaders cripple some children and force them to beg. Brothels trap others, filling their short lives with fear and cruel abuse.

The kids who dodge these fates don’t have it much better—all street children work hard to survive. They hawk trinkets at traffic signals. They scavenge for garbage to sell. They squat on bare calloused feet to shine shoes. They labor in dingy little factories. And at the end of a long day, they can only collapse into a bed of filthy concrete. These children are often illiterate, sick and malnourished. Many sniff glue or take drugs to cope.

In Delhi alone, there are an estimated 200,000 children living on the streets. Kolkata, Chennai and Mumbai each have around 100,000 children without a home

Code to conquer

Code to Conquer is a nonprofit organization formed in 2014 with one aim- To empower young, brilliant minds to conquer the world by teaching them computer science. These people, due to their financial implications are unable to learn computer science and therefore have no platform to implement their ideas and change the world. We are devoted to creating an environment where children are encouraged to come up with ideas and learn the beauty of computer science in ways that are fun yet rigorous. We want to ensure that neither age nor financial constraints act as a barrier to their goals.

Our primary motive with Code to Conquer is to provide every Indian student, regardless of the money they have or where they come from, with the opportunity to change global society through the medium of computer science. We need your help in empowering students from all over the country to revolutionize the world.

Therefore, we are looking for volunteers from different parts of India. If you want to help us in changing the world, please visit our apply and contact page if you wish to get in touch with us.

Indian alliance for child rights

This country alliance was formed in 2001, to carry forward the commitments of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) and the decisions of the UN General Assembly Special Session on Children (2002). It operates as an open forum and a training resource for NGOs, CBOs, research institutions and universities, artists and creative persons, and concerned citizens, and has outreach centres in north, north-east, south India, and a new programme initiative in west India. The alliance energises and facilitates NGO initiatives on critical issues of social development. Its focus is on the needs and rights of children, who form 41 % of India’s total population, and about 50 % of India’s poor. In 2003, it led a national review of child rights and produced a 5-year report which was commended by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, and widely recognized in India. As of 2007, the alliance is coordinating country-wide participation to formulate its second 5-year report on national action for child rights. The alliance advocates a central position for children’s entitlements in national planning and investment in social development.

Mission - Every right for every child.

Kumaon Rural library

Community living is an important part of any civilized society. Respect for each other's culture and country's heritage; contribution to socio-economic development of communities; and protection of habitat of human and the wildlife are fundamental to peace and harmony in any society. Rise in economic prosperity of a country and its constituents without corresponding growth of their culture is likely to make economic prosperity unsustainable in the long term. Producing leaders that excel in the field of art, literature and other cultural areas is fundamental to cultural development of the country.

India is currently passing through a phase of rapid social, cultural and economic transition due to liberalization and resultant exposure. Significant changes are occurring in the way of life of people. An immensely young population has to deal with the dynamics of this transition on a daily basis. The role of art and literature assumes far greater importance in such times. Thinkers, writers, poets and artists assume a significant role in providing coherence to the process of transition and documenting it. There is a need to strengthen the role and contribution of thinkers, writers, poets and artists in the country.

An exodus of young population is taking place from the villages and smaller towns in search of employment opportunities. The migrating youth do not always carry their way of life along thus leaving behind traditions, customs, costumes, which gradually fade out of their lives and collective memories. Efforts are required to preserve and document these traditions and practices for the benefit of future generations to make them strong resilient societies.

India is a country with an immensely young population. It is the responsibility of the more stable and established adults of the society to provide guidance, be approachable, become mentors, and offer their wisdom to the young and aspiring population who are the future thought leaders.

The Centre is keen to develop internships as an integral part of our programme. We invite interns from diverse professional and educational backgrounds to come forward to contribute to the work of the Centre. Their experience with the Centre will enable them to continue to participate in community development work well beyond the course of this internship. In that sense, the internship is recognized as a beginning of a much longer relationship between the Centre and the intern, as well as the institution they represent.
