Help 600 homeless children in Kolkata reclaim their childhood by supporting their education, health, nutrition, safety & shelter through the Rainbow Homes program. The concept is simple: unused rooms in functional schools are refurbished and converted into a Rainbow Home, where all needs of the children will be taken care of - schooling, recreation, shelter, nutrition, tuition, healthcare, and most importantly, love and care. The idea is to ensure a safe and happy childhood for these children.
Long Term Impact:
The objective of this program is not only to lift these children out of savage poverty, but to yield mature, well-educated and responsible citizens with enhanced potentials to sustain their livelihoods in the future. Through a team of dedicated caregivers, community volunteers and State authorities, the Rainbow homes establish an internationally replicable model for diminishing child homelessness.
