Imagine living your life on the streets, with no idea where your next meal will come from. Imagine being so afraid that you feel you have no choice
but to run away from home. Now, imagine doing all of this before your eighteenth birthday.
Priyansh Foundation started its Institutional Care programme as a part of its project. The programme is run by Priyansh Foundation and seeks to provide shelter, care, homely atmosphere and a dignified life to children from difficult circumstances like street and run-away children, victims of child abuse, children of lifetime convicts, negative children of HIV/ AIDS positive parents, children of sex workers, and other vulnerable categories.
Of the children currently residing at the Institutional Care Centre, 28% are orphans, 41% are from single parent families and 31% are economic orphans.
