The Background Story:
Through the unwavering support of JOY OF HELPING and its donors, Nari Gunjan is able to ensure safety and protection for the most vulnerable children within the Musahar communities.
Nari Gunjan has effectively shielded these children from abuse and neglect, granting them access to primary education and healthcare services. This commitment guarantees that these children are entitled to a healthy and joyful childhood.
Nari Gunjan has also taken significant strides in providing an alternative home for 60 orphans, either by reuniting them with their immediate relatives or by placing them in nurturing foster families.
Financial support sponsored by Nari Gunjan has facilitated parents and caregivers in properly looking after these children, thereby preventing institutionalization that may arise due to economic challenges.
This has been achieved through regular training sessions conducted with parents, caregivers, and other stakeholders. These sessions cover various aspects of child rights, relevant laws, children’s psychological needs, parenting, and children’s entitlements.
The training has effectively motivated the Musahar and Dalit communities to combat social issues such as child marriage, child labor, child trafficking, and abuse.
