The U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce the Small Grants Program for fiscal year 2010.

The purpose of the program is to assist countries around the world to strengthen democracy, human rights, civil society, and rule of law, and to combat extremism in their countries by making grants of up to $20,000 to local non-governmental and not-for-profit organizations.

Proposals must support program activities that promote democratic practices, including civil society; freedom of information and independent media; transparency in government; NGO capacity building; rule of law and judicial reform; civic education; conflict resolution; human rights; ethnic, minority and women’s rights. The application deadline is June 14th, 2010. Final selections will be informed in early August 2010.

General guidelines shall be carefully reviewed when preparing the application for submission.

General Guidelines

    A PROJECT PROPOSAL FOR THE REHABILITATION OF STREET CHILDREN AND FOR THE PREVENTION OF CHILD EXPLOITATION AT JODHPUR, CITY RAJASTHAN

    BY

    Manav Kalyan Sansthan
    (Human Welfare society)

    50, Laxmi Nagar, Jodhpur [INDIA]

    1. INTRODUCTION :

    From 2001 Manav kalyan sansthan is implementing a project for the street children of jodhpur city. Within a short period of 7 years we could do a lot of services to a number of street children. At the same time we admit that we could not meet all the needs of the street children due to financial constraints. Now we are in great need for finance to do more service to the street children who are found in great number at jodhpur city. On our attempt to help the street children, we came across with certain astounding facts. We came across with so many instances of child exploitation in the area. Child labour, child prostitution etc. are some of them. In the light of the above findings, we have decided to extend our activities to prevent these kinds of acts also. This project proposal is an outcome of our sincere desire for helping the children in difficult circumstances. We propose this project as a follow up and extension of the activities, we have carried out over the past 7 years.

    II DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT :

    This project is meant for availing our sources for Garbage collation the street children of Jodhpur city into useful and responsible citizens and to wipe out all kinds of child exploitation from the area and to promote, Protect and safeguard the rights of children by means of Awareness generation and adopting rehabilitative measures.

    III. PROFILE ON LOCATION OF THE PROJECT- JODHPUR CITY :
    Taking into the account the proximity, urban characteristics, industrial growth ,
    emergence of slums, jodhpur city happened to be the best choice for the location of the project.

    IV. THE INTENDED BENEFICIARIES :

    This project is meant for the benefit of children in difficult circumstances with stress on street and working children. Children especially girls who are engaged in prostitution.

    4.1 DESCRIPTION OF THE BENEFICIARIES :

    A. Street Children:

    The phenomenon of street children is an offshoot of the complex interplay of structural factors. It is a phenomenon because the existence of such children has been an immediate object of perception. Ever since the days of industrial revolution children have been seen working, living or loitering around in streets, cross roads, public parks, Parking tols, market places, commercial centres, tourist areas, railway stations and bus stands.

    The existence of street children is also a phenomenon in a different sense it can be explained in terms of structural factors. Increasing tempo of urbanization and growth has led to an unprecedented flow of poor families from Village to cities in search of higher incomes and secure employment. A reasonably high percentage of street children are, thus, children of migrant labourers working in loosely organized low wage sector of urban economy. These children are pushed out into the street to earn for themselves a livelihood and, if possible to support their families.

    Migration, however, is only a part of the problem. Recent studies on urban under employment have shown the existence of a large number of poor city- dwellers employed less than full time or working at low skilled street jobs at seasonally fluctuating wages and unregulated working conditions. Uncertain family incomes in the face of rising pressures of population and inflation, push women and children out to the street as a measure of rescue.

    Attempts have been made to explain the phenomenon of street children in socio- cultural terms. Socio- cultural factors or the pulls of urban life indeed have a role, but the role is found to be limited. To a street child city primarily means a place for his survival. It has been found that even the children who run away from homes do so on account of poverty, neglect, maltreatment, and break up of family due to death and desertion or harsh working and living conditions.

    Three major categories of street children have generally been identified on the basis of their relation with their family. ‘Children on the street’ : The largest category of children consists primarily of working children who still have family connections of a more or less regular nature. Their focus in life is still the home. A very few attend school. Most return to home at the end of each working day and have a sense of belonging to the local community in which their home is situated.

    Children of the street:

    The second group is smaller but more complex. Children in this group see the street as their home and it is there that they seek shelter, food and essence of family among companions. Family ties exist but are remote and their former home is visited infrequently.

    Abandoned children:

    The third group may appear to form a part of the second group and in daily activities are practically indistinguishable. However by virtue of having severed all ties with the biological family they are entirely on their own not just for maternal but also for psychological survival and therefore require a different approach.

    Our Activities for the Railway Children :
    Hitherto the activities of MKS for the street children was exclusively among the railway children of Jodhpur. Street life for many of these children begins at railway stations. India has a well-built railway network. All the important towns are connected with railway lines and train is the favourite one for the poor people. Ticketless travel has become a common feature in Indian railways. The children who desert their families and run away to the towns and cities choose to travel in train and that too without a ticket. If they are hauled up on their way they may head at the next railway station hoping to get food and shelter. Jodhpur being an industrial town and a big railway junction a lot of street children live in the platforms. During the first few days in the city the children are particularly at risk and their innocence can quickly be lost as they are exploited and made to steal or are sexually abused. Therefore it is in the Railway station that the children need help quickly.

    At the station JODHPUR has a desk, a contact point for runaway children. The aim of the desk is to make first contact with the child when he / she takes to the street and gets sucked into a vicious cycle of deprivation and exploitation. A street educator is deployed in the station to spot out the children. The spotted child is then directed to our shelter where depending on the reason for running away the child is either counselled to return home or to stay at the shelter. During last year we could reunite 55 children with their families, and sheltered another 22 in our shelter home. In the shelter home these children were given education thereby made them also to read and write and count. Facilities for recreation, sports and games, picnic and tours were also provided. In the future apart from Railway children we would like to expand our target groups and extend our services to all the street children who are found in Jodhpur.

    STREET CHILDREN OF JODHPUR CITY :

    There are approximately 3,800 street children in jodhpur. Last year we had made a special study on the street girl children of jodhpur. This study has revealed the following broad characteristics of the street children. (1) The problem of street children is neither aimlessness nor delinquency, but primarily existential in nature. Such children are simply looking for income to help support themselves or their families. Most of the street children are working for livelihood. 52% of the working street children are in self-employment sector (rag picking, metal and scrap collection, petty trading of edible and non-edible items etc.) 14% work under employer in small shops or servicing sectors. Others worked as casual laborers by carrying load, cleaning and washing at marriage parties and doing other such manual work. We have also found that the target group has to work for 10 to 12 hours a day. Those who work for lesser hours do part time work like ragpicking or domestic work after school or after household chores.

    2. The current earnings and occupational mobility of street children are limited because of the lack of educational skills, training, finance, guidance and help. Their earnings show wide fluctuations and are usually not enough for subsistence because there are too many children sharing too few jobs, some of whom are in competition with adults. Children working in garages, hotels and at tea-stalls have to work for the perpetual threat of eviction and therefore cannot think of complaining against inadequate / irregular payment of wages or employment facilities or even inhuman treatment. A small percentage of younger children engage in begging.

    3. Street children are often exposed to physical abuse and extortion. Although most are law-abiding the need to survive forces some of them enter into illegal activities. Some also acquire the habit of smoking and gambling at a very young age.

    4. Parents of street children mainly hold low pay, unskilled jobs or are self-employed. Income of the father is supplemented by the income of the mother. Mothers of 85 % of the street children were found to be doing some kind of work for family support. The income of the mothers was found to be usually low.

    5. Not all street children are recent migrants. Only 29% of the street children had migrated to the city within 3 years. Most of the street children are from the surrounding villages and few from within the state. A few from the neighboring states are also there. A few children have migrated to Jodhpur city with their families and most of them have come to the town alone to earn money to support their impoverished family at home.

    6. Most street children are over the age of 6 and the majority over 8.39% boys and 41% girls in a sample of 306 working street children has to work 10 hours a day.

    7. Most street children have not attended school and the majority of these who attended school had dropped out before completing primary level.

    8. The Nutrition and health status of street children is invariably unsatisfactory, characterised by quantitatively and qualitatively inadequate food intake, infrequent medical care, exposure to health hazard surroundings and climatic variations, occupational hazards including car accidents, for street vendors and cuts and infections for ragpickers.

    9. A high percentage of street children lived on pavements. 38% of street children spent their nights under some kind of covering such as bridges and railway station.

    VII. PROBLEMS CONNECTED WITH THE WELFARE AND DEVELOPMENT OF STREET CHILDREN:

    While the general public tends to view the street children with disregard, fear and rejection, those who work directly with these youngsters see them as admirable survivors, potential entrepreneurs and decent citizens. Remedial programmes for street children however are not easy to implement. One of the major problems is identifying people with different commitment and the right kind of attitudes to work with children on the streets. It can take months to break down the psychological barriers built up by these children for self-protection. Street works also involves operating in parts of the town / city that are dusty, crowded and some times very dangerous. It also means being out at night and coming in contact with adult exploiters. Besides all remedial work for the socially isolated and economically disadvantaged is sure to turn out to be very costly if not linked with the ongoing programmes of education, health, nutrition, vocational training and Entrepreneurship development.

    Access to urban basic services is another problem. Children require more services than the adults. They also need specialised services and in case of family breakdown, substitute care. It has been observed that the children of the urban rich grow up with benefits of education, good health and nutrition. They also have space, privacy and material wellbeing. By contrast, the children of the poor experience multiple deprivation and have no time to live their childhood. In various types of situational compulsion street children have to compete not only with others on the streets for work wages and security but also with their own adult family members to obtain access to urban facilities.

    VIII. SCOPE FOR THE PROJECT:

    In India a variety of programmes have been implemented for the care, protection and rehabilitation of children in situation of deprivation, destitution and neglect, abused and exploited. However, the problems of the children of and on the street have not so far been directly addressed to. Inability to recognize special nature of the problem led to the categorization of street children as abandoned children and identification of their problems being related to education while the real need was to satisfy short term emergency needs in the perspective of overall development of the street child as a human resource.

    It is in this context that we propose this project for the welfare and development of street children of Jodhpur city. The Government being aware of its own inability to implement such programmes encourages the NGO’s to initiate welfare and development programmes for the street children. Therefore this project will have a big scope in respect to jodhpur city. Besides, no other organisation is at work in jodhpur city . jodhpur city being a fast developing industrial town and a big Railway junction there always be an unending flow of street children to this town. This too increase the scope for this project.

    IX. COMPONENT OF THE PROJECT:

    Apart from the Railway children this project aims to serve the other street children also.

    The component of the project will be as follows:

    • Identification of street children and their families found at the risk of disorganisation, abuse or exploitation.
    • Mobilising preventive health services and providing access to the marginalised children of and on the street to treatment facilities.
    • Providing nutrition support to maintain the requisite level of physical and mental efficiency of street children.
    • Offering facilities for literacy, numeracy and life education and initiating efforts for mainstreaming in the formal education system.
    • Linking facilities for the training of street children in gainful vocations, trades and skills so as to enhance their earning capacity.
    • Utilising and promoting facilities for shelter and hygienic living.
    • Offering counselling, guidance and referral services for upgrading the quality of life among street children.
    • Providing organised recreation for a healthy, harmonious and wholesome growth of street children.
    • Making all possible efforts for the re-integration of street children to their families or their placement in a family setting.
    • Promotion of Entrepreneurship among street children for income generation wherever necessary by mobilising facilities of institutional credit.
    • Protecting street children against all forms of abuse and exploitation.

    X. OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT:
    X.A. LONG TERM OBJECTIVES:

    1. To help the street children to settle in life.
    2. To help the street children to become god fearing and noble citizens.
    3. To motivate them to rejoin their family and continue school / private education.
    4. To wean off children completely from prostitution and drug peddling.

    X.B. SHORT TERM OBJECTIVES:

    9. To organise skills and income generation training.

    XI. DURATION OF THE PROJECT:

    The implementing period of the project will be 4 years.

    XII. ACTION PLAN:
    1) Appointment and Training to Staff:
    The services of the already existing 7 staffs will be utilised for the implementation of this project. Apart from them a part time MBBS Doctor will be inducted into the staff. All the staffs will be given training to equip themselves with techniques and skills needed for dealing with street children. This training will be of 15 days duration and it will be given in another NGO, which is doing the same kind of activities for street children. Lecturers will also be arranged to the staff by eminent personalities who are well known by their services for the street children. Exposures also will hold a prominent place in the training programme.

    2) Identification of Street Children:
    The trained staff will go to the hangouts of the street children in the morning and evening and will identify street children. Among the identified children those who are willing to use our services will be led to our dropin centre.

    3) Counselling:
    Those children who come to the dropin centre will be given counselling. This counselling will be aimed to know the child and his / her problems. The counsellor will try to create a favourable attitude in the child to go back to his family.

    4) Reunification with the Family:
    Those children who ran away from their homes and who are willing to go back will be assisted to reunite with his / her families. The staff will contact the runaway / thrown away child through phone or letters or personal visits and will try to create an atmosphere conducive for a cordial reunion. After creating such a conducive atmosphere the parents will be invited to our dropin centre to make a formal request to our organisation to send back the child who is now in our care. After signing a format both by the parents and the child he or she will be handed over to the parents to take to their home.

    5) Food and Clothes:

    The street child who is brought to our dropin centre will be provided with food and a set of new clothes. These children will be given food as long as he or she remain in our dropin centre before they are reunited with their parents.

    6) Health Checkup and Treatment:

    Those who come to our dropin centre directly from the street after one or more days staying on the street will be affected by diseases. Therefore these children will be sent for a medical checkup soon after their arrival in the dropin centre. Those who are found with diseases will be given proper treatment.

    7) Recreation Facilities:
    The street child like any other child is in need of recreation and enjoyment. To meet this need Recreational facilities will be arranged for these children.

    8) Shelter:

    A street child will remain in the dropin centre only for a few days / weeks until the reunion with the family takes place. To those children who do not like to return home or the parents do not like to receive the runaway child back home and those children who have no parents or relations to go back will be removed from the dropin centre to a shelter home. The shelter home will be both for boys and girls. This shelter home will be a home for such children where they will be sheltered, fed and cared with love and concern in this shelter home.

    A) Education:
    The children in the shelter home will be given nonformal education every day as a step towards formal education. The street educators will conduct the nonformal classes daily for about one hour either in the morning or evening. Younger children will be given elementary education and then sent to formal school. To those children who are willing to continue their studies will be given opportunities for their reschooling. They will be admitted in formal schools in the same class in which they have dropped out.

    B) Counselling:
    Counselling has to play an important role in shaping a good personality. Therefore counselling will be given to the street children from the identification stage upto rehabilitation stage. This will help to infuse self-confidence and inculcate a sense of self-reliance in the children. Our own counsellor will give counselling to the street children. This will be done to group and individuals according to the needs of each one.

    C) Health Care:
    Most of the street children who are on the street suffer from chronic abdominal infections due to malnourishment and unhygienic food. But illness such as fever and diarrhoea are dismissed as trivial. They learn not to heed the innumerable cuts and scratches that result from sharp edges of tin, glass and iron. In case of severe illness they may go to quacks who promise quick-fix remedies. Hospitals are avoided as far as possible. Health care will be given importance in our shelter home. They will be subjected to medical checkups at the very beginning of their stay there. Medical checkups will be conducted twice a month by a part-time Doctor who will be specially deputed to the purpose. Medical treatment will be made available to those children who will be found afflicted with any disease of serious nature. Health classes on personal hygiene will be given to the street children who are in the shelter home, twice in every week.

    D) Vocational Training:
    All the children who are in the shelter home will not like formal education but be interested in vocational training. For such children trainings of their aptitude will be given. They will be given skill training in trades like carpentry, greeting cards making, Crosa wire bags, Candle making, Spices, Mat making, handicrafts, tailoring, vehicle repairing etc.,

    E) Placement:
    According to the aptitude, ability and skill the children will be placed in jobs. Our staffs will contact firms like factories, teashops, hotels, workshops etc., and will collect details about the vacancies in each of them and will reserve the job for our street children. Thus placed children will be contacted regularly by our staffs and will monitor their progress.

    F) Seminars and Camps:
    In order to give chances to the children of our shelter home to learn from others and to develop friendship and know each other we will organise seminar and camps for the street children. Seminars will be conducted twice a year and camps once in two months.

    G) Picnic and Pleasure Trips:
    The children will be taken to historical, national and religious important places to have an exposure to outside world. Four such tours / exposures will be organised every year.

    H) Introduced To Small Savings:
    General habit of the street child is to spend lavishly without caring about the next meals. Therefore to cultivate a habit of thrift small savings will be introduced and strictly enforced in the shelter home. An account will be opened in the name of every child in a bank or in a post office and pass books will be issued to everyone. Our staffs will supervise the small savings of the street children.
    OTHER SERVICES:

    1. TELEPHONE BOOTHS:
    A 24 hour phone outreach service will be started in Jodhpur. This will be committed to responding to children in difficult circumstances. Any child in distress or a concerned adult who sees a child in trouble, can dial the number and access this service free of cost. At the other end of the line there will be a social worker who responds to every call. Depending on the nature of the call the workers either go and meet the child or ask the child to come to the shelter.

    2. NETWORKING FOR CHILDREN:
    Since there are so many organisations working effectively with street children a collective of such organisations can achieve more. Therefore we will do our level best to form a network of NGO’s in view of working for the survival, protection and development of street children in order to mainstream them into the society. We will also develop collaboration with the police especially the juvenile aid police unit, the railway and other officials, thereby creating a fora where the government and NGO’s can work together to protect children on the streets.
