Jamghat is a registered NGO that offers opportunities for street children and society to come together and make a positive change in each other’s lives. Jamghat provides an opportunity for children to leave the streets, be educated and receive vocational training while sharing their stories with volunteers. These volunteers come to offer guidance, care and organize empowering workshops for the children.
Through Theatre, Nightwalks, a Residential Home and Day Care Centre, the goal of Jamghat is to build respect for street children within society until the ‘street’ identity is removed and the children are active participants in a world that previously chose to ignore them. Established in 2003, Jamghat comprises of young adult professionals and volunteers with a variety of skills and experiences.
Its mission is to provide an environment where street children can evolve as physically and emotionally healthy, self-dependent individuals, living a life of their choice. It uses street and stage theatre to nurture self confidence in the children and build awareness in society on key social issues related to street children.
