Help more like Beraram to get back to his family
Beraram was sent to Bangalore by his father from Bilada village in Rajasthan to work in the city and earn better. His employer used to force him to work which Beraram wished to discontinue. So he ran away from the place of his employer.
Beraram was found at the railway station of Bangalore on July 14, 2008. The NGO motivated him to go back to his family. His travel expenses of Rs.4000 were borne by his employer as a part of compensation of Rs.14,000 for child labor. The employer also agreed to never employ a child again.
The child was also provided with food and shelter for the eight days before leaving for home. The counselor also explained Beraram's father how dangerous it could be for a child to be in the city alone. He also motivated him to continue his son's studies instead of sending him to work. He told him that his son could have a better paying job once he completes his standard 10. The child agreed and asked his father to admit him in school and gave Rs.14000 to him.
Seeing Beraram's condition, his parents were convinced not to send him to the city alone ever again. Right now, the child is at home and working with his father and is also attending school in the evening.

About The Program
What the beneficiary gets
Sathi is an NGO that works with government homes and facilitates in reintegrating the child with the family as soon as possible through the Child Welfare Committees (CWCs). The project aims at rescuing children who have run away from their homes and now live on railway stations. Sathi ensures the protection of these children and helps in reuniting them with their families.
The beneficiaries are the children and their parents. The NGO staff locate the children on railway platforms, bring them to shelter homes, help them adjust to their new surroundings and figure out the problem. The counsellor then talks to the child to sort out his problem. The child is handed over to the parents only if he/she wishes to return to their families. If the child does not wish to return or if the family cannot be traced, they are referred to CWCs or another NGO for vocational training after 15 days. Sometimes, the families are unable to bear the travel cost, which is then provided by Sathi. Medical help is also provided to those who cannot afford it. For instance, a child named Praveen was rescued from Bangalore city railway station and brought to the shelter. He had skin rashes all over the body. All medical assistance was provided and the child and the mother were sent back only after he was completely cured.
