Paraspara Trust runs bridge schools, transit homes, and an adoption centre. It was established in to develop a non-exploitative society by eliminating child labour. They are also involved in developmental activities in slum communities by interacting with people on a daily basis. Their projects are mainly funded and supported by various Government authorities.

Various interventions for eradication of child labour are:

  • Child Labour Rehabilitation: Paraspara runs two Bridge Schools where child labourers and neighbourhood children are enrolled and taught to read, write, sing, dance, draw, and play sports. The children are provided accommodation with separate beds, lockers & cupboards; security, counselling, entertainment, and nutritious meals. They go through vocational trainings in tailoring, embroidery, housekeeping, etc. and are then enrolled in government schools. Children and parents benefit from medical camps and the distribution of free medicines. So far, 2,150 child labourers have been enrolled in mainstream schools, and 12 slum communities have been declared as child-labour-free communities.
  • Transit Home: The aim is to identify runaway children and working children in the streets, railway stations, bus stands; addicted to smoking, drugs, begging; and those trafficked; and bring them to the Homes, rehabilitate and counsel them, and facilitate education with nutritious food and shelter. Paraspara runs 5 Transit Homes.
  • Baalemane – Girls’ Home: The Home was started to facilitate and ensure survival, protection, developmental rights and participation rights to street and rescued girl children in Bangalore.
  • Adoption Centre:  Provides a homely environment, love, protection and care to orphaned and abandoned children. Paraspara is involved in the entire adoption process.
  • Open Shelter: Operated for children in need of care and protection, particularly beggars, street children, runaway children, rag pickers, small street vendors, trafficked children, and migrants.
  • Special Juvenile Protection Unit (SJPU): In coordination with police stations, UNICEF and DWCD, Paraspara runs 7 SJPUs to keep neglected children off the streets and away from crimes. They conduct awareness programmes on protection from sexual offences and Child Rights.
  • Ujjawala Project: The objective is prevention of the vulnerable from trafficking, rescuing women and children from the place of exploitation, setting up protective and rehabilitative homes, and re-integrating them to their original families through social mobilization and involvement of local communities.
