Overview

Sathi is an NGO that works along with the government Homes and facilitates in reintegrating the child with the family as soon as possible through the Child Welfare Committees (CWCs). No payment is received from CWC'S for this purpose.

The Basics

Children who are separated from their families generally stay in homes run by the State Government. The centres have their own procedure, and it takes more than a couple of months to rehabilitate a child. The child thus remains away from his/her family for a long period of time, meanwhile languishing in the government home. Over time the family loses hope of meeting the child and there are severe repercussions in the future. Sathi aims to improve the situation by reuniting these children with their families at the earliest.

How It Works

• As part of the operations, parents need to be located.
• In the CWC, a full time worker interacts with the child to trace his/her home.
• A similar interaction is held with parents and both parties jointly work towards locating the child's house.

Statistics

• 3 months – Duration of time required by the Government Homes to reunite separated children with their families

Girl Reunited with Family after a decade
When Lakshmi was 7 yr old she ran away from home in Janta Colony,B’lore after accidentally breaking a window. She was afraid of being beaten up. She lived for 10 years in the Govt. children home. When she was 17 yrs, the CWC asked our help in tracing her family. After staying for 10 yrs in the Govt. home, she had forgotten everything except the names of her native place Hoskote & Besterhalli.
With the given names of the places, the staff accompanied her physcially & went to trace the parents on 18/08/09. When they went to Hoskote they came to know that there is a village by name Bhaktarahalli not Besterhalli. In Besterhalli with the help of a senior person of the area, we were able to locate her mother.
The mother initially failed to recongize her daughter. After a few seconds both the daughter & mother started crying & hugged each other. This was a very emotional reunion. As per our follow-up on March 2010, the girl is studying in a college.
