The NGO Asha Kiran has a project for vulnerable children in India. The aim of Yashodhara Home is for vulnerable children from the city of Pune to live in a place where they find the aid that will enable them to develop their potential and the greatest possibilities to participate and make choices in their own life.
From this space, this project offer them, according to the organization, the chance to access education and vocational training that will further their integration into the educational and productive system of the country.
Also, this program offers to the children the possibility of having access to the health and hygiene that will facilitate a healthy overall development and the chance to live in an environment where the protection of their rights and the necessary affection are guaranteed.
The project, according to Asha Kiran, sets off from the Convention on the Rights of the Child as set forth by the United Nations, which acts as a beacon for the objectives, the methodology and the activities it undertake. This favors comprehensive and positive actions in which the children, their families and their community also take part.
Its implementation allows the development of vulnerable children and their reference background, paying special attention to the areas where their rights are not respected.
Always taking into account the interests of the child, the plan of the organization is to generate development processes that imply learning and personal autonomy, and favor a comprehensive, lasting and stable development based on knowledge of children’s issues, acting with and on their reference background.
