On 11-Aug-2007, We(Hari.T, Suresh.R, C.Senthil Kumar, Udhaya Kumar,V) visited to Home for Destitute Children(Govt Children Home for Boys), Royapuram, Chennai.
Who maintaining this Home ?

State government maintaining this home, In Tamil nadu we have 8 homes in different district. Every state in India having this type of home for Destitute Children and its based on the state government interest/influence.

How or Which Children coming to this Home ?

In city police, separate department works to catch any children rooming in bus stands, railway station and signals without parents. Same as any begging children and child labours, etc. First this police man try to get the information about there parents and try to handover to parents itself, if they are not able to find out, they will send this children to this Home. These kids not involved in any criminal activities.

  • Runaway and Missing children
  • Begging children
  • Child labour
  • Surrendered by parents
  • NGO handover children

How this Home Works ?

Reception: its hall and completely closed, children can’t come out from this place, this hall having one TV, some sports item, toilet, etc. They need to take the food inside itself. We can see one security in side they will monitory. They have two receptions, one for below age of 13, second one for above age of 13.

If police man catch any children, first they will put it in this Reception only. After that they will try to find out there parents or native place or native state, etc. If they can able to find out the native state, they they will send this kids to the corresponding state Children Home, it’s woks based on mother language. We met the children’s from Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Bombay, Orisa, Behar and more north India(unknown state)

Why this home is having School ?

If they are not able to identify there parents or native place, they will put that children in this school for regular education.

Total number of students in School and Reception (Always change)
School – 95
Reception – 141 (TN – 47, Other state – 82)

How we can help ? What is there need ?

1. In school, they have only 4 teachers. One of the teachers was retired. Government not deployed any teacher for this posting. So we can file.

2. This school students asking several education materials, we can provide.

3. In Reception, we can deploy teacher to provide non-formal education, it may be anything, because this children in this room for more the 3 months. Just they will watch TV and sleep. Some time they will play inside games.

4. We can provide some indoor games material for this students.

5. Any way already we are planning to contact cultural program only for School students.
