SERVICES AT REMAND HOMES
Quote from Mother Teresa (‘anjezë’)
“Today the poor of the world are looking up at you, do you look at them with compassion ? Do you have compassion for the poor who are hungry ? They are hungry not only for bread and for rice, they are hungry to be recognized as human beings, they are hungry for you to know that they have their dignity, that they want to be treated as you are treated, they are hungry for love.”
BRIEF OF THE CAUSE
Team ’anjezë’ supports the cause of serving children at the remand homes of Mumbai under the Children’s Aid Society. Children’s Aid Society is a organization of 7 homes established in 1927 as an NGO in the field of child development. It falls under the provisions of the Juvenile Justice (care and protection) 2000 Act, Amendment 2006. Children are brought here by the Police and NGO’s for their care, protection, treatment, development and rehabilitation. It is governed also by the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) and consists of children who are missing, child labourers, beggers, orphans etc. There are 7 such homes under the society, which houses approx 1800 children.
