Providing vulnerable children with a safe residence and offering opportunities for holistic development:
- A “home away from home” for children from vulnerable backgrounds
- Full time comprehensive residential care offering a wide range of activities to cater to the needs of children (residential, education, skill training, counseling, music & dance, sport, etc.)
While pursuing its mission, PCVC came across many children who hailed from critical backgrounds and had to work for survival. Some of these children were with families, but the parents either refused to take care of them or they were from single parent families in dire economic conditions. Some were orphans and destitute, living on railway station platforms, near traffic signals, and in backward communities with no place to go.
Hence, there was an urgent requirement to address the needs of these children who had no proper roof over their head and were in desperate need of care and protection; the concept of Residential Shelter came into being, with the aim to provide a safe haven to children from critical backgrounds, along with opportunities for holistic development.
Our residential shelters are secure places where children receive care and attention, have the opportunity to go back to school, and are able to enjoy their basic rights as children. In addition to academics, we discover and enhance the different talents (sport, music, media, etc.) of each child in the shelter home and thus pave the path for their proper rehabilitation and eventual repatriation.
