Karan a 14 year old child, now studying in 9th standard, introduced to IVF in 2015 from an imprisoned mother from Tihar jail. After visiting his house our counselors understood the vulnerable situation of his family. Karan has three siblings and one cousin residing with their grandmother, who is the only support to his family. Karan is eldest among all these four children. When India Vision foundation started to support this family our counselor conducted detailed sessions with all children and individual sessions with Karan to make him understand about his ‘Limitlessness’ and to be responsible and helpful to his younger sisters and grandmother.
Our regular follow ups with him has not only given him a vision but also has helped him to build a dream for his future. Today Karan aspires to become a scientist. Our counselors have observed his hard working nature, observing skills and have motivated him to join for tuitions and community Library, we strongly believe that all this has helped him to be bold in his future steps towards his dreams.
Altaf is associated with us since he was 5 years of age. He was a student under Grace Mission, after that he was under our Children of Vulnerable Families (CVF) Community Project. His disinterest in studies lead him to join in bad habits with his friends. He has 3 elder sisters and one brother. From all of them, only one sister has completed her education till 10th. He is the youngest child in the family and mother works as a sweeper in JLN stadium.
We admitted Altaf to Asha Deep Foundation (ADF) in order to provide him with good education. When Altaf got admitted to ADF, we came to know that he has few inappropriate habits which he learned from his previous community environment. He was also involved into smoking cigarettes, beating and abusing children. He never used to clean his bed, cupboards and just wasted time by roaming here and there in the hostel premises. He was aimless with very poor hygiene.
Anjali belongs to a very small village she got associated with IVF when her mother was imprisoned in Tihar. She has a younger brother who is studying with us in St. John’s school. We got Anjali enrolled in Ashadeep this April in class 6th she has difficulty in reading & writing.
Anjali was a very shy child with low confidence. Slowly when she started sharing her deep hidden fears, it came to our notice that she keeps all her frustration to herself and had no good friends with whom she could share her feelings.
With our regular individual sessions and group sessions we tried to motivate her to be more participative in open discussions during group sessions. This motivated her to talk out her fears and also break shyness.
