Community Outreach Programme (CORP) was founded as a single community center in Dharavi and has now become a network of 18 centers working across multiple city slums. Their goal is to empower at-risk children, women, and teens using education, tools, and training in order to improve their lives.

Some of their activities in 2014-15 were:

  • Sharanam Shelter Home for Girls: This home is located in Dharavi and currently has over 35 girls aged between 5 to 18 years. 21 girls are enrolled in English medium schools. Another 8 women attend university and live off campus in college hostels where they continue to be supported. The girls receive personal attention, speak English, become computer savvy, practice yoga and learn dancing. 
  • Shalom Center for differently-abled children: The children with disabilities at the Center face significant hardship in Mumbai. CORP supports these children through various programs which resulted in excellent academic performances from them in Class X and Class XII examinations.            
  • Grant Road Shelter Home for Boys: This shelter newly shifted from Reay Road to Grant Road houses 18 boys.  14 boys are enrolled in English and Semi English medium schools. CORP supports their education and conducts activities like cricket and football training by professional coaches, swimming and yoga classes, etc.
  • Crèches: CORP has been actively committed to building a network of crèches in some of the poorest areas of Mumbai. In 2015, over 1,300 children under the age of 5 years benefited through the crèche centers where they received nutritious meals, access to basic healthcare and instructions on hygiene.
  • Residential Shelter Homes: This is a home for runaway or abandoned children. CORP provides basic shelter, food, education, healthcare and clothing while fostering a nurturing environment. Staff members live on site and manage the homes, acting as parents for the kids to provide them with advice, encouragement and support.
