VOICE (Voluntary Organization In Community Enterprises) is an initiative to respond to the needs of street children. Its mission is to reach out to vulnerable and neglected street children, and through education, enable them to become whole human beings and self-reliant, responsible, contributing citizens.

VOICE believes that the potential of every child is limited only by the education, love and opportunities given to them. By delaying their entry into the labor force and acquiring schooling, children are likely to become more productive, earn more, be better able to control their lives and become healthier.

VOICE runs ‘Sanjivani’, a residential home dedicated to rehabilitate and educate girl street child. The home provides a safe, clean, healthy and congenial atmosphere to the 32 girls presently residing there, thereby enabling them to live a life of dignity and respect.

The facilities offered at this home include nutritious food, clean drinking water, facilities for personal cleanliness, a curriculum that includes academic education, strengthening of values, skill training, yoga, martial arts, physical training, loving care which the children yearn for.

The core members of VOICE include development professionals, lawyers, doctors and voluntary social workers who ensure that needs of every girl at the home are taken care of. Regular medical check-up is done and utmost care is taken to ensure high level of hygiene is maintained by the girls themselves and in the premises. Counselling sessions are organized to address mental health issues that may be prevailing among them.

Games, yoga, and music form an integral part of the daily routine of these girls. It not only serves as a source of entertainment, but also helps in healing the pain of a terrible past. Girls are encouraged to actively involve themselves in growing fruits and vegetable in the premises for their own consumption. Besides, they are provided training in making articles like candles and paper bags which are then displayed at exhibitions.

All the girls at the home have been enrolled for formal schooling from Class 1 to Class 12. This year, VOICE also facilitated the admission of around 60 boys into regular schools.
