"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

“Unmesh” is sprouting to new life. This is the extension of the project ”Anwesha” funded by Childline Foundation, Govt. of India. Once implemented, the shelter will accommodate twenty kids. VHAT (NGO) receives request for shelter for children from Child Help Line, Police Department, several social organizations and common people. Many of these children are forced to slavery as child labors in hotels, tea stalls, workshops or domestic help. Young girls are particularly vulnerable to cross border trafficking.
