Success Story

This Bihari family fled their native place along with their mother to escape from their father’s extreme abusiveness due to alcoholism. The railway police found them stranded in Chennai Central railway station and handed them over to Child Welfare Committee Chennai. Through CWC these children were homed at our partner NGO in February 2013. They arrived traumatized and suffered with symptoms of malnutrition. These children had never been to school before. Today these children are living healthy lives. They can speak fluent Tamil and English and they are toppers in their class. The children are demonstrating an increased level of hope, and belonging. They have found safety, security and love.
