SHELTER HOMES UNDER ROHIDA PROJECT: India has 2 permanent children’s homes for both boys and girls.
Many of the children living in these homes have been sexually abused or have been sold into prostitution. Others have lost their parents, beg or are exploited into child labour. They typically come to I-India through Child Line, or through our outreach staff at the railway station. When possible, and if in the child’s best interest, he or she will be repatriated to their family, otherwise they will be allowed to make one of the shelter homes their new home.
