CCCYC Team Visit to Jagruthi
In India, varied gradations in the social and economic palettes are explicated through poverty, malnutrition, sanitation problems and cluttered shelters. Global developmental and relief agencies estimate about 11 million children live in the Indian streets. Also, more than 2 million Indians are living with HIV/AIDS. Scanning the statistics and ramifications in detail will reveal the unenviable conditions in the lives of millions of the children and communities. The council through various contextualised programmes addresses the challenges of children and communities whose future is at risk if not intervened appropriately.
Jagruthi aims at implementing programmes to prevent sexual abuse, rescue and rehabilitate children from sex trade and sexually abused children in Bangalore. Jagruthi means to empower; as the name suggests, the organization works to empower the weak and vulnerable sidelined in the society on the basis of poverty,
