Repairs to Shelter Building

This shelter provides a safe place for young girls who are victims of trafficking and systematic abuse. The shelter is under the jurisdiction of the Child Welfare Council and girls are brought to us who have been rescued by the police. Our team takes the girls in, cares for and counsels them, and advocates on their behalf in court. Over 90% of these daughters are restored back home with their families or placed in long-term family care within days to a few months’ time.

This project will fund repairs to the Sangam Vihar shelter. Because of flooding, there are repairs that need to be completed to the walls of the building.

Jal Vihar Awareness Programs

Raise awareness around health and community issues. We provide after school tuition for children attending the local government school and work to integrate children not attending school into formal education. This particular need is for increased awareness around protection for children who live in an at risk community of Delhi, a railroad slum in Jal Vihar.

Providing Families for Children

Sometimes, the children who are intercepted by our rescue team and placed in our short-term residential shelter cannot return to their families. In these cases, we recruit and train volunteer caregivers to provide a family for these children. We currently have five families into which children have been placed in India. Our team regularly follows up with children and caregivers to provide resources and support.

The best possible outcome for children who have lost family support is to be placed in a stable, loving family where they can learn and mature in a safe environment. Studies show that family care allows a child to develop long-term relationships and grow in a setting that promotes overall wellbeing as he/she matures into adulthood. In contrast, children who are placed in institutional care have been shown to display a number of social dysfunctions and struggle financially.

Family Care Home in Delhi

This family consists of 8 girls and a caregiver team. The girls that make up this family have all been cared for through our Delhi shelter, girls that were rescued by the police who had been victims of trafficking and abuse. Our Global Family team were able to care for and advocate upon their behalf in the court. Since these daughters do not have family or extended family to return to, the court asked us to provide longterm family care. And we did! Over 1 year ago, we established this family home so that these girls could return to life as daughters, not victims. They go to school, play, and experience all of the things that every child deserves.

Funds for this family include basic needs for the girls (food, clothing, education, medical), special outings, rent, and caregiver expenses for 1 year.

Vehicle for Rescue

Global Family Nepal needs to purchase a vehicle that will assist in the rescue of victimized children from their place of exploitation and/or identification to our transit shelter. The transit shelter in Kathmandu identifies and rescues children who have been victimized by human trafficking and other forms of modern slavery, including child labour. Children are identified by our team, law enforcement, and other NGOs. Our team transports these children to our transit shelter and provides them with immediate health and legal care, assessing their needs and referring them to necessary services. While staying at the transit shelter, they remain under the care of qualified and passionate team members. Global Family team members work to identify and locate their families and determine whether it is safe for the children to return to their families. If not, they are placed in long-term family care. The purchased vehicle will also be used to transport children back to their homes and families.
