Family Background

Jyothika is an eleven year old girl from Bangalore.  Jyothika’s father was working as a manual laborer and he was addicted to alcohol. Unfortunately, he expired a year ago due to a health problem. The child’s mother is working as a manual laborer, in a market storeroom.  Jyothika has two elder sisters and a younger sister.

 

An NGO, Need Base India, visited the areas in search of children, who need support. They observed a child playing with her siblings and roaming on the street with much older people. The staff approached the children and they said that their mother had gone for work. The staff waited with the children, until the mother came back home, from work. They found out from the mother that the husband was addicted to alcohol and used to spend all his earning to drink. About a year ago, he passed away due to a health issue. After convincing the mother to let the children be under the care of the NGO, she finally agreed.

 

Need Base India (A foundation for Child Care and Development) is a non-profit organization started in Dec 2009 with the intention to work towards addressing the basic and fundamental rights of child care, protection, health and education for children living on streets, runaway children, orphans, children out of school or children under challenging situations.

Need Base India was established with the aim of helping these vulnerable children and operates multiple residential homes for girls and boys within Government School premises in the city of Bangalore.

 

 

The home has a procedure of putting their new inmates through a Bridge program that covers educational, nutritional and behavioural rehabilitation. Jyothika is admitted to the 4th standard, Government Girls School.  She is a cleaning committee member. Jyothika is very active and good in studies. She actively involves herself in all the activities done in the home.

She also like to take care of the younger children in the home. She has good leadership qualities. She loves to dance!

 

By helping support Jhothika’s overall well-being, you will be supporting the UN's Sustainable Development Goals 1 - 5.

Goal 5: Gender Equality

 

Considering the School home not only houses the children, but takes care of their overall development and wellbeing, by having in-house caretakers and teachers to ensure they are properly looked after & guided after school hours to address their weaknesses, all this needs a considerable amount of financial inputs. Need Base India’s team provides transparency and shares the complete cost details with us, and our conclusion is that the homes are managed very well while keeping a strict vigil on the cost. Thus, the audited need per child is $1000 per year. This includes education, boarding, hygienic home, bridge development, medical attention, and last but not the least to take care of the children’s security. 

The total spend per child is categorized basis the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals 1 to 5 and presented to the child sponsor on a periodic basis.

Social Impact

The aim of FreeBasics when sponsoring a child are: - to ensure continued education, - clean residential environment - hygienic and nutritious food for a healthy growth, - timely medical attention with periodic preventive check-ups, - security of the child especially that of a girl child, - to ensure overall personality development of the child
