COVID UPDATE

We are witnessing a devastating human tragedy in India with the recent surge in COVID. Families are going through unprecedented times, having to search across hundreds of sources on internet/ social media to find much needed help. Child Survival India has started a helpline “Prayaas” which is working with families to help them find the support they require in hour of need. 

We strive to work as a helping hand in identifying the hospital bed availability, ambulance, oxygen alternatives, references of medical stores and the plasma donors. In case you need help, kindly submit your request prayaas.org.in

WE HELP PEOPLE HELP THEMSELVES

We empower marginalized and vulnerable members of the community by enhancing their knowledge, skills, capacities, as well as helping them to access opportunities and services and participate in life’s decisions.

You can create a better quality of life for women, children, families and communities in the poor urban and rural settlements in India with improved health, education and social status for all.

We believe that people themselves have the power to bring change, to make a difference and create hope for life. CSI simply act as catalysts and facilitators to help these people face with confidence and dignity life’s challenges.

No Poverty by 2030

Let’s aim for a nation without poverty by 2025. This is possible by your small contributions in helping people learn how to help themselves by skill development, good sanitation so that there are fewer diseases and lower infant and maternal mortalities.

What Our Beneficiaries Say

United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (#UNODC)) and #UNWomen have jointly released a research paper on the global estimates of femicide (gender-related killings of women and girls) in the private sphere in 2021, which has put these startling numbers despite huge data discrepancies and underreporting in several countries including in India.
Any form of violence against women and girls is rooted in gender inequality and discrimination, unequal power relations, and harmful social norms that puts men on a higher pedestal than women. This has led to extremely brutal violence against them in their most closest sphere. According to the report, approximately 56% of all female homicides are committed by intimate partners or other family members, while only 11% of all male homicides are perpetrated in the private sphere.
On the occasion of International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, we call upon government, law enforcement agencies, civil society to come together to raise awareness, sensitise and take action against gender based violence against girls and women and clearly as the data suggests the Action Must Begin AT HOME!

On the occasion of International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women we bring to you the success story of Babli from Narela, who like several other women and girls are being helped to protect against domestic violence and abuse.

Babli was the youngest among the 5 siblings of her migrant parents hailing from Uttar Pradesh, who had come to Delhi about 30-35 years ago. Despite the financial hardship, her parents got all the children properly educated including Babli, who studied till class 10th in a Govt. school at Narela.

Babli fell in love with Raju, a Bengali boy from her colony and asked her parents’ permission for marriage. But both their parents refused to wed them they had regional differences. So the couple got court marriage without telling their parents and started living on their own and both parents cut off ties from them. Few years after the marriage were smooth sailing for the couple and Babli became a mother of three children during this time. But their peaceful family life hit a storm when her husband Raju fell into wrong company and developed bad habits and started drinking and he became violent towards Babli and the children. He started ignoring his duty towards his family and work, went to work late and came home late, established illicit relationship with other women and stopped paying Babli the family expenses too. Seeing the financial hardships Babli wanted to go out and work herself to contribute towards family income but Raju abused her and didn’t allow her to set foot outside. One day in fit of rage, Raju threw her and the children out of their house.

As she had already cut off all ties with her own parents and her in-laws didn’t live with them as well, Babli had no support and nowhere else to go to. Hungry since morning, she with her children came crying to CSI’s Mahila Panchayat office at Narela and told our counselors about her ordeal. Seeing urgency of the matter, our team immediately visited their house with them. They counselled Raju along with Babli and told him that his wrong actions were hurting the family and growth of his young children. It was his duty to support Babli in bringing up their children and during these times of high inflation it was also a good idea for both parents to start earning to increase family income. The team also warned him that if he doesn’t fulfill his duties as a husband and father and also abuses his wife and children, he will be booked under Domestic Violence Act 2005, under which he will be forced to pay compensation and also be punished for the physical abuse. Upon hearing everything in detail from the counsellor Raju realized his mistakes and apologized to Babli. Thus with immediate and effective intervention of CSI’s Mahila Panchayat team both husband and wife reconciled without any further dispute.

During the case follow-up, Babli told our counsellors that Raju had turned a new leaf after the counseling. He not only again started paying for the expenses in time but also allowed Babli to go out and work to contribute to the family income. Babli was very thankful to Mahila Panchayat team for reforming her husband and restoring her family and showed her interest to join the team as a volunteer. Today as an active member of the Mahila Panchayat Narela team, she helps several other girls and women like her who are also victims of domestic violence and abuse.

In today’s #ChildRightsWeek post coinciding with #WorldToiletDay,, we will discuss how lack of toilet facilities not only pose a health hazard but also a great risk to safety and dignity of girls and women. #CSI4ChildRights has found that slums in the urban areas in the country including in National Capital Region don’t have gender sensitive Community Toilet Complexes due to which girls and women living in these slums tend to avoid visiting these toilets alone specially after evening.
In our project carried out in slums and J J colonies of Kalkaji, Delhi we found the CTCs are ill-lit, with toilet cubicles without latches/locks on doors, lack running water supply and without separate entrance for men and women. CSI in this project did advocacy with CEO Delhi Urban Shelter Imroveent Board( DUSIB) to make the Gender Needs Checklist issued by Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), Government of India, a mandatory tool in operations and maintenance of these CTCs so girls and women can use these toilets without any fear. Similarly CSI has also supported building of WASH facilities including gender sensitive toilets in SDMC schools so girls can continue their education without worrying about toilet facilities specially during menstruation.

Coinciding with #InternationalStudentsDay, in today’s post of our #ChildRightsWeek we will talk about importance of focusing on right to #education.
#COVID19 pandemic had critical impact on education system in the country and consequently on the learning and development of 320 million Indian children due to schools closures and lack of accessibility of online education tools. #CSI4ChildRights has played a critical role in ensuring continuity of learning and promoting mental health and psychosocial wellbeing of children. CSI conducted project KEEPING EDUCATION ALIVE: BUILD BACK BETTER EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN supported by Save the Children & SC Johnson towards this objective.
This intervention was run in the National Capital Region, one of the major hotspots for the pandemic, where 2500 girls and boys from 10 municipal cooperation schools, and four communities were reached out for continued learning support.
