Program Description

El Shaddai Charitable Trust (ESCT) runs residential homes for needy orphans, destitutes and children at risk. They are currently running four Homes in Goa. This programme is implemented through the residential Homes run by El Shaddai. ESCT identifies the destitute children and enrolls them.

The children are placed in various homes as per their age and gender. At the El Shaddai Home, each child is provided with food, clothing, shelter. Medical needs of the children are also taken care of by the homes. The organization works to provide them the required support to help admit the children into formal schools. For mainstreaming the children, the children are provided extra coaching by trained staff.

The after school coaching forms the basis of their education and is a very important aspect of their growth. The trust serves around 300 under the age of 16 children living in the homes.

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 with a mission of bringing childhood to the children who never had it.
