Night Shelter at Rajpur Road

NIGHT SHELTER

The Night Shelter is open to boys who need shelter from conditions that adversely affect them, for example, Shazad, a 16 year old boy was turned out from the house where he had worked for many years a domestic help. Having nowhere to go he joined the night shelter. 15 to 20 boys in similar conditions to Shazad stay in the shelter, where they are provided proper meals, recreation, place to sleep and toilets. Medical attention is arranged by the attendant for those who needed it from the government hospital nearby. The grown up boys do their training as apprentices in the local car workshop and have started to earn a small living. Some have been rehabilitated and a few, back in their village, even get married.
