Mission/Vision
Bringing Childhood To The Children Who Never Had It.
 
Background
Matthew Kurian was appalled at the state of the children living in a slum. Anita from the UK was shocked at the conditions of the children on the streets. Both had the same Dream. El Shaddai was Born!
 
Matthew Kurian is the Co-founder and Managing Trustee of the El Shaddai Charitable Trust.He decided to immersed himself in Church and social work. In 1993 he started working with alcoholics and drug addicts in Goa. A chance visit to a slum changed Matthew’s perspective on life completely their appalling and desperate lifestyle shocked him and he began teaching them the importance of hygiene, clean drinking water and healthy food. He was moved when he saw them begging on the streets, collecting rubbish and even eating out of garbage bins to relieve their hunger. He started children’s home in a small rented place in Vagator with 15 slum kids in 1997.

 A runaway child
Mohan seems to have originated from Goa and also born and brought up here. Mohan was referred to the GMC, Government hospital in Panjim due to a head injury after falling from a height. His relatives (as mentioned on his Discharge summary) abandoned him after admitting him at the hospital. Mohan was unconscious at the time of admission and hence could not figure out when his relatives had left and gone Mohan now feels safe and happy. He is an intelligent and sensitive child who enjoys playing different games with his friends in Victory House. Mohan is currently studying in Shanti Niketan (non formal) school. He is a sweet, friendly and a fun-loving boy who is enjoying his new surrounds. He needs continuous love and care. This can be achieved through sponsorship and guidance which will help him achieve his goals to grow and develop as a normal child. Mohan received a complete treatment for his head and brain injuries at the hospital and his wounds were healed. As his relatives could not be traced, he was hence referred to SCAN-India (a project of El Shaddai) for further welfare. After inquiring, it was known that Mohan had around four more siblings and he had lost his mother. The family seemed to be very poor and his Father most probably, the sole earner was struggling to look after his children. Mohan was soon brought to us and was quickly admitted into our residential home. He was welcomed into a loving home which offered him comfort, companionship, nourishing food, education and the possibility of a secure future.
 
 Orphan child finding a home
Kutija born in Karnataka used to live with her parents. Her father was a driver and died in an accident. Her mother was a fruit vendor and died having mental illness. Kutija was looked after by her aunt, but the aunt would find it difficult to look after her and provide her with the basic necessary requirements of food and clothing. Her aunt having heard about El Shaddai brought Kutija to us to admit her in one of our homes. She was 10 years old when she was brought to us. Kutija was admitted in one of our homes named Rainbow house. She was blessed with a home where she received love and care along with nourishing food and a good education. Then she was admitted in our Shantiniketan school. At present she is doing very well in her studies. She will be shifted to National Open school depending on her educational progress. She proved to be a calm, polite child. She loves to play and interact with friends. She is always ready to help anyone in need. She is a hardworking child with a cheerful approach. Her smiling face and a humble attitude pleases everyone around her.
 
 Adamma
Adamma & her siblings lived with their parents at the bus Stand in the city of Mapuca in Goa. The parents were beggars! The children were in a filthy condition and followed the same profession as their parents. Our Field worker found this family and gave counseling. The parents were adamant and refused to change their way of life! Our worker convinced them that the children have a right to a proper Childhood and Education and convinced them to enroll them with El Shaddai. Adamma is the second youngest of the five (3 boys & 2 girls). Adamma because of her age was given residence in the House of Kathleen our home for girls between the ages of 3 & 8 yrs, where she was given a bath, clean clothes and a bed. She was admitted on the Feb 05, 2005. Adamma started her schooling in the Kindergarten at Shanti Niketan School. She proved to be a polite, well mannered child.

 Manna Distribution of Stepping Stones
A year ago from now, through our Stepping Stones programme we started Manna Food Distribution to the people who are needy and neglected. Earlier, these people used to beg and waste their lives on the streets. They used to live an unhealthy lifestyle, had fallen prey to vices like alcoholism and did not value anything or anyone in their lives. More than the food, they needed love and care. As a result, Stepping Stones felt the need to start counseling for such people, to help them get over the various addictions, to stop wasting their lives away because of depression and to explain to them the importance of life. Now, most of these people, who have been encountered by Stepping Stones have started working. With the help of the counseling received, some of them have started living their lives with dignity and know how to value things and people around them. In terms of health, they are better off now. In case there is any illness or any injury, they come to the shelter, asking for medicines. Stepping Stones makes sure that the person is given the required medicine on the recommendation of a doctor and also makes sure that any open wound is cleaned and dressed.
 
 Paru
We believe that Paru is originally from Karnataka. Paru and her elder sister, Rupa were found at the Mapusa bus stand without their parents or any relatives. Paru and her sister were noticed moving around on their own late at night. An unknown person informed and alerted the Police about the children and requested an action to be taken. The Police immediately rescued the children and enquired about their parents but the children being young were unable to disclose much information. The Police later brought Paru and her sister to us and requested that the children be admitted into one of our Homes as they had no place to stay. Paru and her sister were quickly admitted into the House of Kathleen and welcomed into a loving home which offered them comfort, companionship, nourishing food, education and the possibility of a secure future. Paru now feels safe and happy. She is now attending non-formal school. She has shown a lot of improvement in her studies. She enjoys studying and is a bright learner. She is also attending after-school coaching that happen in the home. She needs continuous love and care to help her achieve her goals to grow and develop as a normal child.
 
 Sanika
Sanika comes from a poor family from a village. Her father was an alcoholic, did not support the family and was abusive towards her mother and the children. Due to this her mother died from depression. Sanika has four brothers who continue to live in the village with her grandmother. Sanika was not able to bear the abusive behavior of her father and the neglect of her grandmother. She ran away from home. A kind-hearted person found and brought her to our shelter. She was admitted into one of our children homes and welcomed into a loving home which offered her comfort, companionship, nourishing food, education and the possibility of a secure future. Sanika now feels safe and happy. She is intelligent and a fast learner who enjoys dancing and singing. She is very creative; she loves painting and craft work. She attends our Shanti Niketan, Non-formal School and has made a number of friends. She attends extra coaching after school. Now she can read and write and communicate well in English.
