    El Shaddai Projects Reach Out

Over 11 million children in India are homeless... that's more than the entire population of Belgium.

These children are among the most vulnerable in society, open to abuse, trafficking, and forced labour in factories, restaurants, and mines. They are often given the most hazardous jobs. This robs them of their childhood and takes away their chance for education, which is their only hope of a way out of poverty.


If nothing changes, street children grow into impoverished, uneducated adults. Getting work is unreliable, and an ever-increasing number of jobs require reading and writing. Many are forced to take any type of job that comes their way, legal or not, simply in order to survive.

But there is hope!

El Shaddai Street Child Rescue (Charitable Trust) is a registered, accredited charity working among children at risk since 1997. We provide support to thousands of children across India through our Homes, Shelters, Outreach Projects, and Education. Working among these children, we find they do not need our pity, just a chance at a brighter future.

You are the hope of a child here in India. Your support is essential to the work we do! Please get to know us and consider what you may be able to do! Anything helps!

What Are We About

Watch To Find Out More
An estimated 25% of India's urban population (810,000 in 2001) still live below the poverty line. Eighty percent of their meager earnings go towards food and energy, leaving very little to meet the other costs of living. The majority of them lives in slums and squatter settlements, in inhuman conditions that deny them dignity, shelter, security, and the right to basic civic amenities or social services, in an environment in which harbors crime, ill health and disease, frequently raise demands on their resources that draws them deeper into vulnerability and poverty. Urbanization accompanied by sustained population growth due to large scale migration from rural areas to urban centers leads to mushrooming slum settlements in all cities and towns in India.
