Help reunite a runaway child with family by supporting a fund towards shelter staff cost, INR 2000


Sathi is an NGO that works along with the government Homes and facilitates in reintegrating the child with the family as soon as possible through the Child Welfare Committees (CWCs). The project aims at rescuing children who have run away from their homes and now live on platforms at railway stations. Sathi ensures the protection of these children and helps in reuniting them with their families.

How It Works

• The main beneficiaries are the children and their parents.
• The Ngo staff locate the children on railway platforms, bring them to shelter homes, help them adjust to their new surroundings and figure out the problem.
• The counsellor then talks to the child to sort out his problem.
• The child is handed over to the parents only if he/she wishes to return to their families.
• Sometimes, the families are unable to bear the travel cost, which is then provided by Sathi.
• Medical help is also provided to those who cannot afford it.
• For instance, a child named Praveen was rescued from Bangalore city railway station and brought to the shelter.
• He had skin rashes all over the body.
• All medical assistance was provided and the child and the mother were sent back only after he was completely cured.
• If the child does not wish to return to his/her family or if the family cannot be traced, they are referred to CWCs or another NGO for vocational training.


• 15 days – Maximum period of time for which a child stays at the NGO

Educated the father not to employ child
Beraram was found at the railway station of Bangalore City on 14th July, 2008 He came from Bilada Village, Rajasthan to work. The employer used to force him work though he did not wish to continue. So he ran away and We motivated the child that we will arrange travel facility for going home. The travel expenses was borne by employer - Rs. 4000.
We provided food and shelter to the child for 8 days. As the child was employed, called the employer and asked him to pay compensation of Rs. 14000. We also called the father and motivated him not to employ the child. The counselor motivated that he should not come so far from their native place. You should explore work at your native place. But as the child was sharp in studies, the counselor motivated to continue school. After passing 10th std, you can opt any job. The child agreed and asked his father to admit in school and gave Rs. 14000 to them. The employer also agreed that hence forth he will never employ a child in his business.
Right now the child is at home and working with his father and going to school in the evening. His parents are really happy and his parents will never send him to a big city to work as they have seen the child s condition in front of their eyes.
