Global Tribe India Children's Centre
Our GOAL is simple, to create a place where the underprivileged children of Bawana, India learn basic life skills, in a fun loving, safe environment that will empower them throughout their lives.
After an initial visit to Bawana, in January 2007, Julie-Ann Clayton headed back to India to open Global Tribe Children’s Centre. Julie Ann, affectionately known as “Jig” and a small team of volunteers in NZ are working under the umbrella of Global Tribe with Delhi House Society, an established NGO in Narela, Delhi.
ABOUT THE CENTRE
Global Tribe Children’s Centre is a Day Centre where children come from 9am in the morning until 4pm in the afternoon. During this time the children learn hygiene skills, life skills, receive a basic education and learn about good values, as well as enjoying a nutritious midday meal.
THE BAWANA SLUM
Bawana, within the Delhi district, is dominated by a slum of more than 20,000 people. The Bawana slum was significantly added to by the forced relocation of Delhi’s poor for the 2010 Commonwealth Games. As a resident of this slum, you experience high unemployment, high crime rates, high disease rates including malaria and typhoid brought about by open and stagnant sewers, mounds of rubbish and overcrowded make-shift-shelters.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
The Global Tribe India team would like to do more for the children of Bawana, but that takes money. Therefore the best way you can help is to donate money or to sponsor a child’s education on-going. Please email us if you wish to receive our periodic newsletter: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to sponsor a child then $20 / month would be a great help.
