Shashikala is all of six years old and extremely energetic!! Help end poverty in her life.

Do what you can to help Shashikala by donating to her cause to help provide hope for her at this time of need.

These children often lose everything that is familiar to them, from their families to their basic needs; making them feel abandoned and quite worthless. We must ensure we give them a sense of meaning and purpose in life, through food, clothing and education, thus providing for their basic needs.

Family Background

Shashikala has a younger brother. Her father was an alcoholic and abusive and he left the house a few years ago. The children stayed with the mother, who is a construction laborer. They stay in tents and migrate to places, based on wherever the mother gets work.  They are homeless. She couldn't afford education for her children and the tents were very unsafe. Her elder sister Kaveri is also admitted in the home. 

The NGO, namely Need Base India, who have a team of social mobilizers identified this family and spoke to the mother urging her to send their children to their home, primarily a government school that doubles up as a children’s home after school hours with due permissions from the Education department and other authorities. 

The home has a procedure of putting their new inmates through a Bridge program that covers educational, nutritional and behavioural rehabilitation. 

At the end of this program, Shashikala was inducted into the 1st standard at Government school. She is active in all the activities at the home. 

 

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.

Goal 5: Gender Equality

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

 



Social Impact

By donating to this cause, you will be helping us in our endeavor of making this world a better place, by supporting one to five of the Global Goals of the United Nations. Considering the School home not only houses the children, but takes care of their overall development and well-being, 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.
