In January 2006 I-India opened two Temporary Homes, one for 25 boys (Child-Inn 2), the other for 25 girls (Ganga 2). These homes operate in conjunction with the permanent homes of Child Inn and Ganga, respectively. The Temporary Homes now act as the first stop for homeless children rescued from the street. Here they can stay until we reunite them with their families, or until they find their feet during difficult times. If the children desire permanent shelter, then after a few months they move to Child Inn or Ganga. Should our temporary and permanent homes be completely full, the child will be referred to shelter homes run by other organisations. In 2008, the organization opened one more temporary home for the additional 25 girls (Ganga 3). At present 20 girls are living in this shelter home.

The benefits of having new, separate Temporary Homes are:

  • the rapid turnover of temporary residents no longer unsettles the lives of permanent residents
  • children can be socialised, learn personal hygiene and stop damaging habits such as drug use before moving on to a permanent home
  • more children are given a home
  • a bridge is created between the street and other children’s organisations who may have spare capacity in their homes

The program is funded by following organization/individuals:

  • Ganga 2 : I-AID, Finland
  • Child-Inn 2 : Smiling Children E.V. Germany
  • Ganga 3: Ms. Christiane Gey, Germany
