Home For Angels
The goal of this project is to provide children of Home for the Angels with the best possible environment where they can be raised for a better quality of life and get the best education. It will enable them to be self reliant with “Education” as an asset.
This project was initiated in January 2017 to provide an education to over 30 children of ages from 5 to 17. These children have lost their parents at a very early age due to HIV / AIDS, and some have also inherited from their parents. They have been abandoned by relatives due to social stigma. Currently, these kids live with Mr. Reji’s family in the Panvel Mumbai area. Mr. Reji (Aka Papa Reji) has adopted all kids as his own and lives with them like a family. He is a Pastor and a Social Worker who has dedicated his life to the betterment and livelihood of these children.
Initially, the project was designed to provide quality education to these children. However, it was observed that many of them were depressed, sick, and not scoring well in school because of the disease and its side effects. Their enthusiasm was at the lowest, there was no glow in the eyes, and many of them were miffed and seemed to lost hope!
After that, the promotors and the concerned think tanks did brain storming and came up with a two-pronged strategy for the project. Provide coaching in addition to school classes and to do various activities for their social and psychological development.
Subsequently, we have triggered their motivation by hiring a private after-school coach and tutor for higher grade kids who were both sensitive and effective. The children found new hope, and the school report card reflect their positive progress.
The children are also involved in various extracurricular activities at home and outside to learn by observing and be self sufficient while enjoying their life.
We have a clear goal of making our children self-reliant . For this, we will provide the requisite skills not only through formal education but also through vocational training. We need to prepare them , enable them to establish in society. For this, we are also providing them with regular medical consultancy to make them confident and motivated. They can pursue their interests and overcome their medical challenges.
