Shahnawaaz Reunited with his family in Gujrat

July 21, 2011

We are very happy to share with you that after series of hard efforts and  8 month long followup, a boy from our shelter home- Shahnawaaz reunited with his family in Ahmadabad, Gujrat.

IN DECEMBER, 2010- the organization found him at Jaipur Railway station during an outreach and ever since he was living at our boys shelter home in Jaipur. In past 8 months, the team members continuously investigated regarding his home, location, family, city and state but the boy repetitively shared the single clue – “Bapu nagar”. Since “Bapu Nagar” is very common name in India and widely used for residential area, colonies, localities etc., it was a great challenge to find his appropriate location. Eventually the Director of I-India, personally investigated the case and shared the case study of child with several field workers, volunteers and members of I-India in different states and cities.

Fortunately, our volunteer at Ahmadabad – Mr. Babu Lal managed to locate the family of this child through his extensive networking and contacts. Babu Lal, straight away called us right from the home of this child and get connected the family with Shahnawaaz, it is simply hard to unfold the expression and feeling of this child when he talked to his mother and father after 8 months. The boy and family furnished all the formalities with CWC (Child Welfare Committee) and under a legal notification and order, the boy has been handed over to his parents. See the news clip above, published in Dainik Bhaskar (a local newspaper)

We wish Shahnawaaz a wonderful life…. full of joy and happiness.
