 Restoring Lost Childhood
Sundari came to the ACCESS foster care home as a homeless child. Her father was a construction worker who kept the child at the building site where he was working. Sundari lost her mother when she was a year old. Sundari was 5 years old when she entered ACCESS. Sundari was given emotional support by a lady worker from who stayed with her day and night. She was sent to Benjamin Nursery School run by ACCESS. She met other children and enjoyed her schooling. She was given good nutrition and all her material and emotional needs were taken care of. She took part in singing, dancing and craft classes. With love and good support from the caretakers, staff and children, Sundari was very happy and comfortable at the foster home. She worked hard in her studies. Today she is a student of Goodwill Composite College in Bangalore doing her II Pre-university Course. She plans to be a teacher. Now she takes cares of other little children in the foster home and helps the Caretaker in running the home too.
 Educating the child for active participation
Child Rebecca is one of the three children to a single parent family encountering numerous obstacles and difficulties to have decent living. Lack of sufficient income made the family to live in a one-room home with depleting conditions. Going to school was a burden, as the mother could not afford the expenses that normally came with good education. When Rebecca was registered with ACCESS sponsorship program, a new hope dawned on her and the family. Year after year the Rebecca’s schools fees partly was paid by ACCESS. Books and uniforms too were given. When their house was too bad due to heavy rains, ACCESS organized additional funds to repair the home so that Rebecca, her older sister, younger brother and their mother would live in a better safe environment. Now Rebecca is in college and enjoying her studies. Her sister who is also a volunteer at the project is working. Their economic situation has improved to the extent that they are above the poverty level. Their mother too works as housemaid. Rebecca also takes active part in the ACCESS Youth Leadership program and is part of the core team organizing events for the youth and teens. She also facilitates sessions for the teens in various topics.
