Tagore public sector school

Tagore Public Sector School educates more than 100 students in the Sanjay Colony of Faridabad, India. Students range in age from 5 to 13 and attend grades kindergarten through 8th. Other activities are held in this school, such as cricket, reading groups, and community gatherings. One of our goals with holding health camps at this school is to learn about the students and their families. At IndoRelief, we aim to help people living in Indian slums achieve the quality of life and healthcare they strive for. With our donors' help, we provide general health check ups, vitamins, antibiotics, vaccinations, and any other treatments the students need. Scroll down to see some of the students and to learn more about our projects, including camps we have held in other schools and the multiple clinics we have opened.

Night Shelter


Night Shelter

Providing beds, food, medical care, and community

 

The Night Shelter serves as a home for men, women, and children living on the streets.

What is it?

We leased a large one-story house and filled it with 27 beds, toiletries, and board games. Each resident is given one bed, three meals a day, and medical care as needed. We have on-site staff 24/7 to help our occupants as needed. 

 

How did we do it?

It took us several months, but with the support of our donors and local businesses  we raised the necessary amount (approx. $10,000) to fund the Night Shelter. Through the friends we have made in the local slums, we spread the word about this project.

How does it work?

Our residents are allow to stay in the Night Shelter for a maximum of 14 days. After 14 days, these individuals will be allowed back in the shelter after 21 days. Upon leaving the night shelter, residents are given information about similar shelters in the area where they can stay. Through our business partners, we also allow residents to work for pay while they stay at the Night Shelter. This allows the residents to have some income with them when they leave. All of our amazing staff are volunteers.

How can you help?

The Night Shelter provides beds on a first come first serve basis. As a result, we have to turn away people if all of our beds are occupied. Your donations will help us lease more space to add more beds. Additionally, your donations go to the meals and healthcare for each of the occupants. Donating clothing, bed sheets, silverware, or pots and pans are also extremely helpful. All donations are tax deductible. We are a federally registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our Tax ID number is 47-2442871.

New Beginnings Clinic

A home for child labor victims

 

The New Beginnings Clinic offers child laborers residence, healthcare, and education through high school. 

THE EPIDEMIC

About 12 percent of children in India ages 5-14 are involved in child labor activities. This is roughly 45 million children. Though child labor is illegal in India, these children work in sweatshops, factories, and in the fields. Families purchase children as servants and maids. Other children are sold to the sex trade. Some children are forced to work up to 18 hours a day, in hazardous conditions. As child laborers, these individuals are denied education, healthcare services, and proper residence.  Many of these children are orphans, while others are separated from their families and friends. Though this is unequivocally sad, many organizations like IndoRelief are working tirelessly to help these children. All of us are working to provide a better future for these children and to let them know that they have not been forgotten.

These two girls were hired to pick crops. In this photo they are holding all of their personal belongings.

OUR INITIATIVE

The inspiration for the New Beginnings Clinic arose from a conversation we had with one of our patients during his hospital visit. Shankar spoke of his experience working as a child laborer. He explained to us how he was sold when he was a small child by his parents. He spent the next several years cleaning and cooking for a family. After his contract finished, the family sponsored his education. He mentioned that other children are not so lucky. Through generous donations, hard work, and stacks of paperwork, IndoRelief leased a house to serve as the New Beginnings Clinic. Through this clinic we provide residence and health services to a select group of children. 

These two boys were hired to cook and clean for a family like Shanker.

THE APPLICATION PROCESS

STEP 1: IndoRelief seeks out sites where child laborers sleep and work. We provide them with information regarding our work and offer them free services via our healthcare partners. We explain the purpose of the New Beginnings Clinic and encourage them to contact us if they are interested.

STEP 2: Interested applicants reach out to us with the contact information we provide them. We schedule a meeting with them, where we learn about their families, histories, interests, and dreams. We seek to make sure that the applicants are serious about using the services and resources we provide to better their lives. 

STEP 3: We vote as a committee whether to accept or deny the applicants. Though this is a very difficult process for us and the applicants, we have a responsibility to our donors to ensure that we only select highly motivated applicants. For those applicants we deny, we provide our other services and provide referrals to local clinics and camps where they may receive healthcare for free. 

Child laborers grow up fast as a result of their experience working for extended hours in hazardous conditions. Jaspreet (pictured here) told us that he was bought two years ago and has been helping a mechanic since. He says he likes to drink and smoke when he is not working.

Meet Amma ji, the caretaker (upper left). She watches over the children 24/7. She was hired after an extensive interview and screening process.

Amma ji is the caretaker of the New Beginnings Clinic. She lives with the boys and watches over them. In addition to preparing meals and cleaning the orphanage, Amma ji serves as a mother for the children. She guides them, encourages them to think positively, and believe in themselves. 

We selected Amma ji to serve as the caretaker after reviewing many applicants for the position. She recently lost her son in a tragic accident, and she explained to us her desire to help other children. We connected with her sincerity and her longing to help children who no longer have homes.

The boys have connected strongly with her. Instead of sleeping in their beds, they sleep with her. They call her "Amma ji" which is an affectionate term for mother. We call her Amma ji as well.

Mental Peace Clinic


Mental Peace Clinic

It is okay to ask for help

 

The Mental Peace Clinic provides a variety of mental health services for people living in the slums of northern India.

 

Why did we start this clinic?

One of the most common stories we hear among our patients is about family members who are suffering silently from depression, anxiety, and other mental health illnesses. Though mental health illnesses are very common in India, very few people seek help due to stigma about mental health . They suffer alone in the shadows. By starting the Mental Peace Clinic, we hope to raise awareness about the importance of mental health. We want everyone to know that disorders like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia are common and can be treated. With your help we can let people know that it is okay to ask for help.

What services are provided?

We have partnered with local psychologists, psychiatrists, and mental health activists to provide drop in hours at a local convalescent home and in slums for people seeking help or wanting to learn more about mental health. Our licensed medical professionals provide free counseling and therapy to our patients and teach coping strategies. While being located on the first floor of a convalescent home, the Mental Peace Clinic also takes place in a different slum one week each month. By holding the clinic in the slums, we hope to increase exposure to mental health services. The clinic is open from 8:00AM to 5:00PM Monday through Thursday of each week.

How can you help?

The Mental Health Peace clinic is one of our most-cost effective projects. Our clinicians are volunteers. However, we do provide medication for certain patients depending on our clinicians' recommendations. These medications can be expensive, especially if the patient requires treatment for an extended period of time. Other donations go toward creating and printing flyers and holding community gatherings where we provide food and inform people about our clinic and its goal to help people cope with their mental illnesses. We are a federally registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all donations are tax-deductible. Our Tax ID number is 47-2442871.
