Mission Statement

To provide a safe place for boys living and working on the streets of Delhi, India.

Needs Statement

It is estimated that 400,000 children live and work on the streets of Delhi. These children are orphans or have parents who cannot afford to care for them. On the street, they are often victims of abuse and exploitation. Some statistics state that over 50% of street children suffer from verbal, physical, and sexual abuse. We provide a safe place for these boys to be cared for.

Description

You can provide toiletries and other hygiene items for the boys staying in our Global Family Boys’ Shelter! This shelter provides a safe place for up to 25 young boys living and working on the streets of New Delhi. The boys are invited to come in, clean up, enjoy a hot meal, and spend time with our team throughout the evening. They are given a clean bed to sleep on and breakfast before heading out for the day. The goal is to not only provide for the boys’ immediate needs but to build relationships and encourage them to return home with their families or find alternative care.

These funds will be used to purchase needed toiletries and hygiene items for the boys. We model and teach healthy habits for these young men so they will learn to care for themselves.
