The Ashraya Initiative for Children is a home for street children that seeks to act as a force for change within the wider community. We strive to provide for each child’s positive re-integration into society with dignity and integrity, a sense of belonging and self-worth, as well as a strong dedication to social responsibility, initiative, and justice.
Outside of our home, we seek to counteract the many societal forces that push children toward the streets, such as discrimination, lack of education and severe poverty. We do this by supporting the poorest communities in the areas of primary education, healthcare and community development and advocacy.
