Jamghat A Group of Street Children
managed by A. Sinha
Established in 2003, Jamghat comprises of young adult professionals and volunteers with a variety of skills and experiences. We are a registered NGO that aims to help children living and working on the streets of Delhi to realize their dreams and re-join society by offering opportunities for street children and society alike to make changes in their lives.
Our ultimate vision is to rehabilitate children and give them confidence to take part in society, while educating society to allow their growth. We approach this by connecting three distinct groups of society, namely,
(i) Resilient street children who are determined to improve their own lives,
(ii) Dedicated youth volunteers who provide emotional and moral support to the children, and
(iii) Older adults and well wishers who assist in resource mobilization.
Within such an arrangement, Jamghat carries the vision of ‘providing food, shelter, education and livelihood opportunities for all children.’
To provide an environment where street children can evolve as physically and emotionally healthy, self-dependent individuals, living a life of their choice.
To use street and stage theatre to nurture self confidence in the children and build awareness in society on key social issues related to street children.
Provide a residential program to children who are without a safe home or family
Encourage and support reconciliation with families whenever possible
Connect street children and the larger population through volunteerism and theatre
Build volunteer and staff capacity to understand and address issues concerning street children
Create an environment where street children are respected as individuals working for their livelihood.
