Snehaanchal was granted a Fit Institute Certificate

April 30, 2011

I-India’s new shelter home for boys at Jhag has recently been awarded a ‘Fit Institution Certificate’ by the Rajasthan Government’s Department of Social Justice and Empowerment. This accreditation declares the home to be a fit place for children, and means that boys can now be directly referred to the home by the Children’s Court, police, and other child welfare bodies. The selection committee found that the Jhag shelter home meets all requirements, and provides all facilities needed for the care and protection of disadvantaged children.

The shelter home is currently a place of refuge for approximately 50 male children who have been found to be at risk. Many of these children have escaped from abuse, or a life on the streets. The certification has been communicated to all relevant child welfare bodies, including the the judicary, the police, the child welfare committee, Child Line, and the Juvenile Justice Board.
