Need Base India (NBI) was started with the intention to work towards addressing the basic and fundamental rights of child care, protection, health, and education of children living on streets, runaway children, orphans, school dropouts or children under challenging situations. Their vision is to stand up for child rights and guarantee that every child has a happy childhood. They operate multiple residential homes for girls and boys within Government School premises in Bangalore.

Their activities include:

  • Rainbow Home: The Rainbow Home, closely associated with the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), is a residential home providing a place of security and basic comfort to vulnerable girls. It is run in government school premises (big hall and three classrooms have been allotted). The girls are provided with nutritious meals, comprehensive education including life skills, and basic toiletries, books & stationery, etc. General health checkups, extra-curricular activities, competitions, and picnics are also organised.
  • Lakshya Udaan Home: Lakshya-Changing Lives and NBI setup this Home in government schools for rehabilitated street boys.  The genesis of this program can be traced to NBI’s Urban Deprived Centre, where it was observed that many children cannot be reunited with parents due to dysfunctional families. The Home currently houses 25 boys and provides them with education, nutritious food, books, and toiletries.
  • Sneh Ghar: This program is another residential home for underprivileged boys and is also located in government schools. The home currently houses 40 boys.
  • Urban Deprived Centre: Supported by SSA and located in the Govt. Kannada School, the project aims to mainstream addicts, street children, dropouts, children from dysfunctional families, etc. The rehabilitation process starts with a School Motivation Camp where good values are taught. Thereafter, depending upon the learning outcomes of the children, they are admitted to government schools.
  • Every Child in School: This is an intervention program for marginalised and underprivileged children, focusing on imparting quality education to them in the form of bridge teaching. It is conducted at two locations in government schools and the current strength in each school is 50 children.
  • Virtual Classes: On a pilot basis, NBI started conducting virtual classes in a government school, in partnership with eVidyaloka. So far, 100 children have benefited.
