Makkala Dhama – A Sanctuary for Children
The journey for the young minds in Sparsha Trust starts with proper care and education. With this vision, we at Sparsha Trust are building a shelter for 300 boys to be located in Devanahalli, Bangalore North.
Our children’s NGO in Bangalore, Karnataka has garnered several accolades for bringing these impending problems of our society to the forefront. We have enabled hundreds of children to bring their life to normalcy. These are some of the children who have been taken care right from their childhood. Some have been rescued from severe poverty stricken environments, and dangerous construction (child labour) sites. However, we ensure that children past a certain age are shifted to another of our establishment to make way for more such kids to attain a better and improved living condition.
Sparsha Trust currently operates Nisarga Grama, a residential multi-dimensional development centre in Hesarghatta, Bangalore for neglected, abused and exploited children. As the Juvenile Justice Act states that boys and girls cannot be housed in the same complex or building, girls are housed there, while boys are housed in several rented locations across Bangalore. This results in frequent changes in facilities, increased operational costs and disruption to critical development initiatives.
The Makkala Dhama project will consolidate Sparsha’s interventions so that it can provide more focused care to the boys staying in its care and also expand its scope of work. Makkala Dhama will be a multi-dimensional residential development centre for 300 boys in need of protection, care, education and development.
Makkala Dhama will be a residential, multi-dimensional development centre, designed to house and support up to 300 needy boys. It will feature the following areas:
