They left us as confident young adults at 16 years old and fully trained seamstresses. Malti,18,displayed wisdom andcommon sense beyond herage when we met her4years ago.

  10. 10. ANNUAL REPORT MILESTONES Six years ago, we started Aasraa with an outreach into the different streets and slums of Dehradun to identify the street children and get to know their backgrounds, problems and interests. Our team has played a significant role in communicating with these children and in building their trust. These efforts lead to the inauguration of the Street Smart program with 20 children. Now Street Smart has gone beyond 300 children with its various activities. We have mainstreamed 162 children among whom is Sunita, 14 years old, who had been begging on the streets ever since the age of five. Chandini, 12 years old, a double amputee was begging on the busiest inter section of Dehradun for the last 6 years. She was the chief earning member of her family. After counselling the family and Chandini, we have now managed to admit her to a residential school. Most of our children were addicted to Our vocational training program facilitated by JOYN India is also growing sturdily. We have 18 trainees in the program. Now they understand the significance of education, they are keen to learn and are gradually improving their skills. It is really difficult to enrol the older children into a school due to their advanced age as well as their lack of interest in formal education. Our Street Smart program is giving these children an opportunity to learn and also earn through vocational programs. education; one can see the difference in their academic performance as well as behaviour, confidence and participation in different activities. Aasraa started 2 night shelters for some of its most vulnerable children in March 2013. We need a land grant from the Government to build a shelter to accommodate more street children to protect them from the negative influences of the street. We are the first organization working with street children to get accreditation from National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) as a study and exam centre for two age groups, 6+ and 14+ We started an Anti Begging Program for children in January 2014.
