In 1952, following the partition of India, the Delhi Council for Child Welfare (DCCW) was established to support displaced or abandoned children. In the ensuing years, DCCW has evolved to offer medical services, nutrition, vocational training, adoption, rehabilitation, and informal education for the underprivileged children of Delhi. Their services reach approximately 2,850 children daily.

Some of their activities are as follows:

  • Palna: A home for abandoned, homeless and destitute children. On average, Palna looks after 70 to 80 children under the age of 8 years daily. The home emphasises holistic development of the children and introduces them to academics. A physiotherapist, a special educator, a nursery teacher, a speech therapist and a child counsellor monitor each child’s progress as appropriate. Infants, special children and older girls and boys have separate dormitory facilities.
  • Orthopaedic Centre: DCCW established the Centre in 1987 with the support of DANIDA, Denmark; International Adoption, Italy; and Misereor, Germany, to provide a complete range of rehabilitation services to physically disabled children. They provide equipment and services such as surgery, physiotherapy, as well as vocational training. Around 70,000 children benefitted from this programme and in FY15 the total beneficiary count was 18,982 children.
  • Bal Chetna: A respite home and day care facility for mentally and physically challenged children established in 2002. There are 4 locations and each centre conducts occupational therapy, physiotherapy, music therapy, special education, and psychological evaluations. A midday meal and supplementary nutrition are offered at the facility. During the year, 152 children were admitted at the centres and 20 children were integrated into mainstream schools.
  • Vocational Training: The Vocational Training programme was established in 1976 for young girls from economically weak families. The programme equips these girls with a skill set from amongst Stitching, Beautician training, Painting, Computer-graphics, and Block printing.  During the year 531 girls registered for this programme.
