HPCL Jahangirpuri, Tughlakabad

Name of ProjectHPCL Jahangirpuri, Tughlakabad
Areas coveredMarginalized areas of Delhi.
Working with200 neglected underprivileged children.
Major issues covered
There are many children living in the government institutions and shelter homes who have no support in life. The government or the NGOs have their limitations and need an additional support from the common masses, corporate and institutions.

The objective of this project is to transform the lives of 200 street / neglected / underprivileged children into youth who realize their rights through provision of basic services of education, meals, clothing, health care, shelter, sports, extracurricular activities and vocational training. Riots, terrorism, earthquakes, poverty, marital discords and various unfortunate incidents, force the children to take shelter on road, beg for food and to engage in various kinds of negative activities. To save at least 100 children from trauma and to ensure smile on their faces and to transform them into individuals with sense of dignity and self-respect is the purpose of this project.

About the project in brief
The project titled “MUSKAN” which means to bring about smile is being implemented at two Shelter Homes run by Prayas. Feeling the need to bring about a change amongst the lives of these disadvantaged children, HPCL stepped forward and in partnership with Prayas, started providing much needed support to these children. Under the project, 200 children are being supported with 150 boys from Jahangirpuri Shelter Home and 50 Girls from Tughlakabad Shelter Home.

Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited has agreed to provide support to this project for substantial improvement in quality of 200 children under the project. year- on year renewal of the project by HPCL will be subject to performance by Prayas.
