Your donation can save a child from the life on the street
Jagdish, now 13-year-old, ran away from home because of extreme poverty. He came to Delhi and started working at a tea stall at New Delhi railway station. He then started working as a rag picker at the station only. There he was caught by the police and sent to Salaam Baalak Trust's shelter home.
The Trust provided the child with clean clothes and proper nutrition. He was also motivated to continue his studies. His medical check-up was also done to access his health condition. He stayed for around three months in the shelter home before getting reunited with his family. SBT also reached out to the court to complain about the tea stall owner for employing a minor like Jagdish. He was fined Rs.90,000 for child labor, which is deposited in Jagdish's account which he is allowed to withdraw once he is 18.
SBT is saving children from child labour and a harsh life on streets. Your donation can help them continue their effort of saving the childhood of the poor children. You can donate with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.

About The Program
What the beneficiary gets
Salam Balak Trust (SBT) was founded in 1988 after the success of the film Salaam Bombay. SBT helps and protects children who run away from their homes due to poverty and other reasons at a tender age. These children usually spend their lives at railway stations, bus stands, congested tourist and business areas or in slums of Delhi.
SBT protects these children regardless of their caste, colour, creed or religion. SBT makes an effort to reunite these children with their families. At first SBT contacts the family of the child through a phone call or a personal visit. The family is then asked to bring some documents to prove that the child belongs to them. If the family is unable to travel to Delhi, then the staff accompanies the child back home. Every year, several runaway children are reunited with their families.
No. of children who are aided through the various programmes of SBT - 5000
No. of children who are reunited with their families every year - 1000
