What We Do
Rakshana Charitable Trust
Caring for the Uncared
Since 2009, Rakshana Home has been working in the areas of rehabilitation of children from vulnerable communities. We currently have one shelter home both for girls and boys consisting of 35 children in total – 20 girls and 15 boys. At present their age range is between 5 and 15 years. Unfortunately, most of our children come to us from homes in crisis. The children are usually removed from a difficult situation by a family member or the legal system. Rakshana Home acts as a catalyst by providing them a safe, protective environment where more than their basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter and education are met. The children of Rakshana Home are from broken homes, with or without single parents who are financially destitute, or have weak or non-existent relationships with parents or step parents. Each and every child deserves security, nurturing, guidance, and protection, and it is Rakshana Home policy to provide them with all.
Each of the children attends English Medium Schools.
Girls School - RTC Girls Higher Primary School Promenade Road, Frazer Town, Bangalore 560005
St Joseph Convent Girls High School Promenade Road, Frazer Town, Bangalore 560005
Boys School- St Antony’s Boys School St John`s Hill, Cleveland Town, St John’s Church Rd,, Bangalore, Karnataka 560005
The aim of the Rakshana Home is to help children become responsible citizens of their community, hold fulfilling jobs, and care for others in suffering. We also provide extra tuition in topics such as English, Mathematics, Science, Kannada and Hindi. It is our policy to provide each child at the Rakshana Home with quality education and a chance to excel, because we believe it can break the cycle of poverty in these children lives. We also provide extracurricular activities of which we encourage the children to take part in to develop their pro-social behaviors and develop their alternative interests and talents. Our fundamental belief is to offer each child the best opportunity to continue their lives into a profession and career they aspire to, and our children are aiming high, we have provided Sports training, arts and crafts sessions and summer school camps during the summer period.
Together, we can make an enormous difference to the lives of these children who, without our care & support will continue in the poverty cycle. These children will be the future leaders within their communities and hopefully beyond into the broader horizons of India. They will always take with them the comfort of our love and the appreciation of the opportunities; they have been given to enhance their lives both now and in the future.
Our vision is to provide a refuge to the orphaned, abandoned, unprivileged children. We work to provide holistic care and a support system by guiding, educating, and giving them love and care that they deserve. We act as a transition for the children to lead a life with complete social dignity and make them capable of helping the society in return. We aim at restoring the bright future and create a sustainable livelihood for the underprivileged children.
