We rescue the most vulnerable in society

South Asia is a region with many injustices and unfortunately it’s the children who are often most impacted. Low value for human life and an economic system that supports forced child labour perpetuates this cycle of injustice. This is further aggravated by a lack of family planning and poor education. Poor hygiene standards and a lack of access to medical care leads to high infant mortality rates and infanticides are still widely practiced.

We intervene, rescue children and give them a safe, secure home where they can grow and thrive.

``Will you help others like me?``

Children may be abandoned, destitute, trapped in slavery, child labour or living on the streets. Less than half of all children between the ages of five and 14 have the opportunity to go to school. Through various projects Empart intervenes in the lives of children and gives them hope for the future.

Safe Home for Street Children

 The first Safe Home for Street Children was initiated for the protection of vulnerable girls who had been exposed to various kinds of exploitation. Currently there are 25 girls living at the Home. They are safe and secure, well cared for and given quality education. The Safe Home’s functions are closely monitored by the Child Welfare Committee, a government administrative body, to ensure child safety. They have acclaimed the Girls Safe Home as one of the best that they supervise.

A second Safe Home for Street Children has opened. This is now home to 28 boys who previously called the streets their home.

Schools

Empart has fully accredited English language schools that provide quality education to thousands of children regardless of caste or religion.

Our presence in communities through schools is bringing a change in the mindset of parents regarding education. Most villagers don’t place any importance on education. Traditionally children stop attending school at 2nd or 3rd Grade. They begin working in agriculture or other trades to make money to support their families.

Empart has started 12 Schools teaching 4734 students. They are equipped with dedicated classrooms, libraries, safe drinking water and toilet facilities. Life in the villages is improving with the establishment of schools.

Residential Hostels

Empart’s Residential Hostels are homes where needy children are cared for and loved. The children may be orphans, they may be from a very large family who can’t financially provide for them or one or more parents may be absent. Our Field Workers who are serving in remote areas where there is no access to a school, may send their children to a Residential Hostel too.

Children attend school, have a warm bed, regular meals and live very different lives – they have hope and a future to look forward to.
