Family Background:

Sathya's parents and aunty stayed together in a home. The child's father and mother are daily wage labourers.  Sathya has a younger sister.  The family was living a normal life, but one unfortunate day, the child's father had a heart attack and he died. 

Subsequently, the family fell into deep debt, as the family was now fully dependent on the earnings of the children's mother. 

Their mother took it as a challenge and continued working to care of her children. As the children grew up, the children’s aunty started to fight with the children's mother about petty issues and asked them to vacate the house. They were suddenly left to fend for themselves, on the street, with no roof over their heads.

There was no protection for the children. The children used to study at the Government School, under the care of Need Base India, an NGO. The mother decided to contact a hostel with the help of her sister's son-in-law.  The children stayed in the hostel for more than three years, but they were not provided with good food and most of their time went in the cleanliness and maintenance of the hostel.  Though the children complained about the problems at the hostel to their mother, the mother told them to stay there for a few more years. The children told their mother that they were not interested in staying at the hostel. 

Finally, their mother decided to take her children back and she approached the Government School, to get a Transfer Certificate, when the Government School referred her to the home under the care of Need Base India.

Sathya is a silent child, very neat and tidy. She does the work given to her.

 

Need Base India is a non-profit organization started in Dec 2009. Rahim Shaik, the founder of Need Base India, has been working in the areas of child care and protection for more than 15 years now. As a member of the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) at Bangalore between 2007 and 2010, he has been exposed to the challenging circumstances under which children tend to live on the streets. 

With more than a decade’s experience of managing projects at Sathi, an NGO working towards rescuing and rehabilitating runaway children, Rahim had a strong orientation towards the issues faced by children much before getting nominated as a member of the Child Welfare Committee. The stint at CWC gave him a better understanding and knowledge of using the existing legal and regulatory framework to rehabilitate street children. 

For instance, why the child is on the street, what are the interventions available to help the street children, why do children drop out from schools and what measures can be taken to prevent this.

NBI’s Vision, To stand for ‘Child Rights’ and guarantee that every child gets a ‘Happy Childhood’, thus enabling children to become responsible citizens.
