Jamghat Night Walk into the life of street children around JAMA MASJID and OLD DELHI AREA , 5th March 2010

The streets of Delhi are homes to lots of children. These children are
forced to live in harsh health-impeding conditions. You can help raise
awareness and bring Delhi a step closer to eradicating this issue by
working with or aiding Jamghat. Jamghat is a Delhi based NGO working
towards rehabilitation of street children into the mainstream. Founded
in 2003 we have a shelter housing 15 children, where we have
rehabilitated around 50 children by now. A day care facility is also
running for the children living in old Delhi area. It offers the
children a chance to use sanitized washroom facilities, basic
education, vocational training, weekly checkups from a doctor, and a
chance to play. Jamghat uses the street and stage theatre as a medium
to build self confidence in their children and also build awareness in
the society on key social issues related to the lives and stories of
children, especially street children.

Every month Jamghat organizes a walk into the life of street children
around JAMA MASJID and OLD DELHI AREA. The aim of the project is to
generate awareness about street children living in Delhi and to help
them in living a life of their choice in a healthy way. The program is
undertaken during the night when most of the people finish off their
days work and recede back to their secure homes and these children are
left alone on the streets to battle through the evils of night. Their
night life offers them many difficulties rendered through their exposed
surrounding. It is then that their true nature of surviving in such a
non conducive environment is brought to life. We interact with them and
increase our awareness about them and their life. The main objective is
to understand the difficulty of being a street child.

We would like you to join us on this Night Walk on March 5, 2010, 8 pm
onwards at Golcha Cinema, Daryaganj.

Your participation in this walk will do a great deal in helping the
street children of Delhi. So please join on this evening and help
support an important cause.

Essential Points:

1) The group is not allowed to carry cameras

2) If a girl/ woman is a part of the group, she is requested to dress
in an India suit, or jeans with a full sleeved top. This is to ensure
safety.

3) It is prohibited to give money to any children seen on the streets.

4) Have dinner and come!

It would be really great if you could pass this message to your friends
and bring them along as well so that we can create awareness amongst
masses.
