Organization Profile

Ages ago Bharat Varsh (India) heralded “Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam” (Entire world is one big family).India is a living example of “unity in diversity” where numerous religions have been coexisting peacefully for centuries. However, myopic vision of many a political parties is eroding the foundation built upon ‘unity in diversity’ by dividing people on the basis of religion, region, caste, sub-castes, etc. The division of citizens on the basis of region is so severe that in our own country, people from NE States like Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura, Nagaland, Assam, Manipur, etc. are considered as foreigners in Rest of India. My Home India is working as an ambassador strengthening national harmony across the country.

We can’t ignore importance of youth & children in nation building. Youth are our “Present” but children hold our “Future”. It is very important to ensure all-round development of children to secure a bright future for the country.

In line with above philosophy, we focus our efforts on two primary activities:-

bulletred001 Emotional integration of rest of India with the North Eastern States & to further bolster feeling of brotherhood all across North eastern states.
bulletred To work on reunification of children rescued and brought to Children’s homes across India with their parents.

Our Vision

My Home India believes “Home is where child should be” and this is why we give special emphasis to reuniting children with their families. It is only in rare cases where reunification is not possible at all or the family has itself caused trauma to the children, we rehabilitate the children elsewhere. Our goal over next five years is to reunite all children in Children’s Homes with their families all over the country

Major Verticals of My Home India


Bonding with North East India.

Spread across 8 states Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura and Sikkim, North East India is country’s prominent tribal area dotted with variety of languages, cuisines, and attires. It is also has rich deposits of oil, coal, uranium etc. It is among the most beautiful regions of our country.

Connected through a tiny strip of land with rest of country, this region remained in dark age after 50 years of independence but during the regime of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Government the focus was shifted to this region and DoNER Ministry (Development of North East Region) was setup and several other program was started for the development of the region and present government is working hard to develop it on priority. The region is plagued with issues such as illegal infiltration of Bangladeshi immigrants, China’s constant intrusion, insurgency etc. This made many to move to rest of India in search of better opportunity

The different looks has resulted in to sort of identity problem in rest of India which is not aware of the NE region as a whole. This sometimes causes misunderstanding between them & local people. Feeling of alienation in one’s own country saddens people from N.E. India & has occasionally resulted in unpleasant incidents. Hence we identified the problems and laid emphasis on increasing awareness about this region and its people all over the country.

My Home India began its activities focusing on the issues pertaining to North East India. Since inception our activities consist the following:

bulletred001 Providing pan India helpline for people of N.E. India
bulletred001 Spreading awareness about N.E. India in other states by conducting seminars on freedom fighters from this region and conducting tours of N.E. India for other states.
bulletred001 Organizing cultural events involving people from N.E. India and other states. We also help N.E. people celebrate local festivals wherever they are staying; helping people from N.E. India mingle with local people.
bulletred001 “Karmayogi Award” in Delhi and “O.N.E. India Award” in Mumbai are given each year to an eminent person who has given their lifetime for development of north east India region in any field of life.
bulletred001 Promoting participation of residents of N.E. India in National Campaigns such as ‘Swachcha Bharat Abhiyaan’ so that they get recognition for their efforts for causes of national interest. Various awareness/sensitization programmes, cultural activities and sports meets are held on a regular basis

Sapnon se Apno Tak

My Home India has conceived and implemented an initiative ‘Sapno Se Apno tak’ for reuniting children languishing in Children’s Home all over country.

The challenges

It is a challenge to ensure that country’s future i.e. children get all the resources for their all-round development & they don’t fall prey to traffickers losing their childhood.

However here are some startling facts:

bulletred001 60,000 children abducted in 2011 of which 22000 remain untraced (DOPT) – NGOs put the number much higher. Abducted children are starved to prepare them for professional begging, their limbs are amputated to generate more sympathy as beggars, and much worse, their organs are also reportedly sold for transplant to needy rich persons.
bulletred001 In the age group of 5-18 years, working children population is 49.8 lacs (NSS Survey 2009-10). NGOs put actual figures much higher; close to 10% of these children work in hazardous industries not considered fit even for adults.
bulletred001 It is estimated that around 1.2 million child prostitutes are working in our country (estimates of 2009).

Whether it’s children who ran away from home in search of better opportunities or even children with resources who left home due to wrong influence/misguidance, children kidnapped by child traffickers, children simply lost in crowded places , children abandoned by extended family members on death of either or both of parents, children brought to Children’s Home due to custody battle between family members upon death of parents, children abandoned or even sold by their own parents owing to difficulties, , all these children end up at children’s home after getting rescued from their respective hell-holes. These rescued children requiring protective state custody are sent to Children’s Home till the time they are reunited with their families.

Unlike observation homes which house juvenile offenders sentenced by court, Children’s Homes are meant for rescued children who are innocent & simply victims of situation. Children’s Home are expected to provide secured environment with some basic facilities such as hygienic environment with sanitation, clean water, proper food, medical & psychological care (especially for mentally challenged children), counseling facilities for misguided children & basic educational facilities. Children’s’ Homes also need to put effort in reuniting children with their families since these Children’s Homes are meant to be a transit stay. However some Children’s Home lack the basic facilities quoted above & a very few Children’s Home provide the additional care that mentally challenged rescued children require. Funds allocated to Children’s Home need to be utilized as efficiently as possible. It is a known fact that due to lack of space, some Children’s Home keeps juvenile offenders & rescued children in common cells. The normal children therefore get exposed to criminal world. If the rescued children remain in the Children’s Home for weeks / months / years intermingling with juvenile criminals, this can change their psyche and convert them into criminals Mahatma Gandhi jee once said “Be the change you wish to see in this world”. Following the same ideology, we are doing our bit to eradicate the problem rather than pointing fingers to others. This is where My Home India steps in to reunite the children with their respective families at the earliest

Various activities done as part of this program

Getting details of children & tracking families

As soon as children arrive at Children’ Home, volunteers conduct many rounds of interactions with them to get information & subsequently connect with concerned government offices such as local police station etc. to track children’s family. Some children even belong to migrant laborers with no fixed place. Despite no comprehensive official system, volunteers collaborate with various government departments & collect the bits of information to accomplish this task.

Securing release order & facilitating family in the process

Volunteers of My Home India help families of children to speedily comply with official process of concerned law enforcement bodies, ensuring that children don’t remain away from their families just because of procedural delays.

Razzle Dazzle

Razzle-dazzle of big city can be blinding for a simple family from remote place. My Home India even extends logistical support to such families. Sometimes children need to be sent to Children’s Home of other state. My Home India volunteers shoulder the responsibility for safe travel to other states.

Counseling sessions

Counseling

An equally important task at the time of reuniting / rehabilitating children is to ensure that they don’t get trapped in this vicious circle again. Sometimes they are just misguided into dreams of a promising life in big city far away from remote villages. My Home India arranges regular sessions and counsels children about importance of attaining basic education etc. before stepping out of their home.

Regular medical camps

Medical Camps

My Home India arranges regular medical camps collecting blood samples of children, doing blood test and providing basic medication. If medical facilities are inadequate at Children’s Homes, My Home India arranges for preventive medical help.

Extended family of children

Extended Family

My Home India celebrates festivals with these children acting as extended family of children. My Home India also conducts special counseling / psychiatric help for the needy children. My Home India regularly provides essential items such as clothes, basic teaching assistance MHI coordinators celebrate their birthdays and festivals with these children’s and inspire others to do so

Rehabilitation of those who can’t go back to their families

My Home India makes utmost efforts in reuniting children with their families. In rare cases when children can’t be reunited with their families, rehabilitation becomes necessary because sending children in such cases back to their family may just aggravate their problems. Necessary care is taken to screen such organizations/ individuals where children are rehabilitated so that children get the appropriate atmosphere they need.

Obliterating root cause of child trafficking & raising awareness

Data related to child trafficking is compiled from children rescued by My Home India and is shared with law enforcement agencies for further action. My Home India also contacts various entities such as SME organizations, RWAs etc. to sensitize them on the issue of child labour.We also conduct awareness workshops / camps at colleges so as to spread awareness of this program amongst the youth and encourage participation of more and more volunteers to spread our message.

Achievements -Till 31st January, 2017

We have reunited 1460 children with their families of 21 states from 29 children homes belonging to four states. This includes 400 girls and 1060 boys, six differently abled children were reunited and 25 children from Nepal and Bangladesh were also reunited

Ministry of women and child development Maharashtra government has Empowered My Home India for “Social audit” for surprise visit and quality inspection of children homes and observation in the state
