Asha Niketan Home For Girls

Introduction

Ashaniketan Home for Girls is one of the macro residential projects under Asha Deep Foundation. In 1992, ADF initiated a campaign under the banner of Street and Working Children to help the street children in the capital. It was soon realised that a major impact can be created by instituting them in residential homes and give them a quality life. This was the turning point which led to the formation of Asha Niketan Home for Girls. However in 2006, due to the Child care and protection act, all residential homes needed to be compulsorily affiliated with the government. Currently, ADF has partnered with the government and taking in children in the girls home through this route. It is a home away from home for the girls who are orphans, poor, homeless or belong to families living on the street. The homes accommodate 24 such girls. A healthy and nutritious diet is given to the girls to facilitate good health and well-being. The children are well disciplined and the senior girls here, take good care of their younger roommates. Safety and Sanitary needs of the girls are taken care of by the warden and other support staff. There are five Child protection committees in each home which consist of four to five girls per committee. These members look after the cleanliness, health, discipline and sports and games inside the homes.

Ashaniketan Hostel for Girls was an initiative driven by ADF to support the children of convicts to provide them at par education at our schools and help them by giving a residential environment.
