Is to provide a safe, developmentally appropriate center for children of sex workers and their mothers with focus on the individual child’s social, emotional, physical upbringing, academic development and future.
Ashiyana Home believes in creating a cocoon of belongingness and love for children of sex workers and their mothers with focus on every individual child’s social, emotional, physical upbringing and academic development.
We want to ensure that we are a haven that builds within children an internal motivation to be a part of a schooling system without feeling like an outsider. Most of the children we meet and grow to love are not enrolled in any school for reasons ranging from lack of resources to sheer disregard for self.
We want to change that by providing tangible solutions such as a pick-up and drop facility as well as qualitative solutions such as having an open relationship with the children where they can share their concerns without feeling judged. We also want to focus on the importance of the body and mind connection. We believe that feeding one and starving the other is not the way ahead. While focusing on providing a healthy, nutritious and most importantly a daily meal, we want to focus on giving the children a combination of activities to enhance their physical health, their social communication skills and their emotional awareness and development as well.
We want to also ensure that the mothers and their children are registered with the government by helping them acquire Aadhar and Ration Cards. Aashiyana home is an amalgamation of dedicated team members who live and breathe the welfare of the children, the volunteers who selflessly participate in all the activities, and the supporters and donors. Our aim is to keep this union flourishing through enthusiastic and committed work over the years.
