Reaching out to the destitute children


Often hidden, isolated and scared, needy children can be hard to detect and engage with. That is why outreach programs are so important. They allow us to identify needy children, create a dialogue with them, build a trusting relationship and provide them with basic assistance. Eventually, the children we have reached out to may be directed towards the proper help services. Ashalayam manages two outreach and emergency help programs in Howrah to ensure that all needy children are identified and offered the assistance they deserve:


  • The Railway Children Project: an outreach program in Howrah Train Station. Read more
  • The Childline: a 24/7 free emergency phone service for children in need of aid and assistance. Read more
