About the Charity
Parivaar believes that changing the destinies of children will change the destiny of India. Parivaar has worked towards the total care and overall development of children who are highly vulnerable to exploitation, victimization and trafficking, including orphans, street children, abandoned children, and extremely impoverished children from tribal areas. It also conducts many humanitarian activities for the destitute and uncared, including elderly and shelter less. With over 1700 children, Parivaar is one of the largest free residential homes for children from destitute backgrounds from West Bengal, Jharkhand, Bihar & Chhattisgarh. 14 years after Parivaar started in West Bengal, it started work in Madhya Pradesh. The immediate plan for year 2018 was to start at least 100 SevaKutirs, each having around 70 to 120 children in selected pockets of Madhya Pradesh.
The SevaKutir Project The SevaKutir combines two key themes most crucial for children in the interior rural areas of the country - malnutrition and education. Day Boarding (Education cum Meal Programs) is provided to children in the age group of 4 to 14. As on 30 November 2018, there were 90 such centres already in operation. The Kutir follows a 2 shift engagement with children; a morning shift from 7 to 10:30 and an evening shift from 4:30 to 7:30. Breakfast consists of seasonal fruits and milk while dinner has roti, sabzi, rice and dal. During the day the children are sent to the local government school so that a continued engagement is established with them. The SevaKutirs are aimed at complementing the government schooling and are not act as a substitute. A 100 child SevaKutir Project costs around Rs.12.5 Lacs annually. YVO channelized the donation received for June 2018 towards sponsoring half of the DundlawaSevaKutir Project. YVO intends to make a repeat donation from contributions received for December 2018 so that the entire annual expense of this project can be contributed by us.
