Program Objective

  • Uplifting Vulnerable Children

We nurture children who lack the protection of their primary caregivers through­­­­–

With access to mentoring support, parental guidance, nutritious food, education, extracurricular activities, clothing, and physical and mental health care, our children develop into self-reliant, socially abiding, and responsible citizens of tomorrow. The values we instill in our children inspire them to make a positive difference in society when they grow up. At the time Athiti Social Services Society takes care of 70 mentally disabled children.

  • Family ties that bind

A child’s family is his or her first exposure to the world. Children acquire abilities and learn about value systems through parents and siblings. The program builds a loving and supportive family environment for at-risk children. Living life in such an environment reinforces the importance of family in the hearts of children and promotes social integration. Knowing they have a family to turn to in their hour of need increases their belongingness, self-worth, and sense of security. Our children and young adults learn to form healthy and safe relationships, and one day have families of their own!

  • Guaranteeing Quality Education

Our aim, children have abundant opportunities to hone their progress based on individual talents, academic interests, skills, and aptitudes. Ngo Care prepares and registers children living in Ghars in the most appropriate educational and vocational institutions, and supports throughout their enrolment. ASSS team encourages children to work hard. The paired dedication of children and the caregiving team results in our children thriving at school and in their vocations.

  • Fostering Physical and Positive Mental Health

ASSS, look after the physical, mental, and emotional well being of children by addressing their unique health and psychological needs. Children that come to often suffer malnourishment, illness, and unimaginable trauma, which stems from past exposure to loss, neglect or abuse. Regular health check-ups, timely vaccinations, and a well-researched mental health care setup are in place, supplemented by accessible trauma-informed care. These activities address any physical and emotional issues and cultivate psychological resilience in our children; they grow feeling loved, understood, and optimistic about the future, and develop into responsible citizens.

  • All-rounded Development

A stable environment teamed with loving attention, plenty of opportunities, training, camps and recreational activities encourage proper physical and psychological development of children under the long-term care of NGO. We motivate children to advance their innate talents and pursue hobbies, as well as to play sports and experience the wonders of creativity through various forms of art. ASSS children value diversity and believe in mutual respect regardless of socio-economic brackets such as gender, race, ethnicity, economic status, caste or religion.

  • Aftercare and Permanent Rehabilitation

We have set up the Aftercare program to support our children over the age of 18 until they reach financial independence, thereby ensuring a ‘continuum of care’ even after they reach adulthood. ASSS remains by their side, adjusting them to their jobs and marriages as per their needs, talents, and education. Children remain a part of the ASSS family for life—long after they are well-settled adults.

  • Catalyzing change

We facilitate visionaries that are inspired to establish and manage voluntarily. We also enable volunteers to become long-term parent figures or Mentor Parents. These are determined individuals with a passionate desire to make a difference, who apply the experience they have gained with their kids to make a lasting impact on the lives of children.

We also promote initiatives involved in the setting up of alternative care for the rehabilitation and development needs of children in need of protection and care.

  • Research

ASSS has been a pioneer in child protection and cares for over twenty years. Our constant endeavor is to lead the movement for the rights and mental well being of children, adolescents, and youth. To augment and share the practical experience we have gained over the years, we have conducted several internal and external research studies, which might be advantageous for other organizations, professionals, and government agencies working in the field of child welfare.

Some of our internal researched include ‘Assessment of Mental and Physical Health of OVC’s in Residential Care Organizations: A Longitudinal Study’; ‘Remediation of Cognition in Kids to Overcome Neglect (ROCK ON) 2015-16’; ‘Quality of Life of CareGivers and its Impact on delivery of Services for Children Living in Child Care Institutions: 2015-16’ and ‘Assessment of Personal, Social, Educational and Interpersonal Needs of the Children ( 10 to 18 years) Living across Foster Care Homes: A Longitudinal Study (2011 onwards)’.

  • Restoration

At ASSS, we believe that it is in the child’s best interest to remain with the biological family as long as there is no compromise on well being of the child. We leave no stone unturned to restore the child to his or her family as early as possible. Some cases allow us to unite the child with his or her family in a short period, however, certain cases may take as long as seven years or longer. The reintegration of children with their families is a continuous process. We have reunited 70 children with their families in the last three years.
