SAMADAAN: SHELTER HOME FOR CHILDREN OF HIV+ AFFECTED PARENTS
AWARE has borne the costs of this shelter home, rehabilitating children of HIV+ parents for the past four years.
The shelter is a well-managed home with 55 children (27 boys and 28 girls). 13 of these children are orphans, 33 have only one parent and all have at least one parent who is HIV positive.
The Home now has two separate, well designed buildings, one each for boys and girls. Apart from wholesome meals, the children get opportunities for developing their extra-curricular talents. They have done extremely well at cultural presentations, elocution, quizzes and sports. They have not only participated actively but have won as many as 38 prizes in one single academic year!
AWARE has been supporting this home since 2009 and the number of children has grown from 17 to 61 and currently is at 55. Using AWARE funds to run the Home, CARDTS has mobilised funds from other donors to develop this lovely campus.
Samadaan strictly follows the protocols for child safety. Recently, the entire shelter home team took a second round of training on child rights from a Bangalore based organisation, The Child Rights Trust.
