An Niveda foundation is a residential institution devoted to the care of orphans—children whose biological parents are deceased or otherwise unable or unwilling to take care of them. Biological parents, and sometimes biological grandparents, are legally responsible for supporting children, but in the absence of these, no named godparent, or other relatives willing to care for the children, they become a ward of the state, and orphanages are one way of providing for their care, housing and education.Do you believe that the value of life is just minting money and to take care of those whom you love. Or did you believe that life is worth living in the schedules made by destiny. Today We are living and counting days which only aim to improve our life and those who matter. While we go to temples and pray for self and live selfishly, their those who don’t have sleepers to put on or a grain to live for.
Many NGO’s are working hard to bridge the gap between the selfish rich and the forgiving poor through different schemes aligned with the government. But to what extent they are effective depends totally on the support of the people and their contributions. It seems quite easy to debate and show concern for those who are not equal. But to think as a community and accepting the responsibility of helping others is difficult in practice. Through the proper guidance of a community outreach coursework we students have gained the insight and the need to be responsible for our community and understand that to help others selflessly without any expectations, royalty or fame is the ultimate path to self satisfaction. The fact that most NGO’s operate in and around the city of Delhi – NCR, we decided to access an Orphange located in sector 31 nitthari village, Noida 201301 named Niveda foundation .
ABOUT ORGANIZATION FOR niveda(FOUNDATION)
One of the FOUNDATION working in the field of orphange children Since 1988,It all began in the town of Bellary in Karnataka where Anjina lived as a 10 year old. Every week, she would see groups of children beating drums and carrying notebooks, walking down the streets, knocking at every door, collecting donations for the orphanage they lived in. Coming from a happy and well-to-do family herself, Anjina would feel sorry for them. Then one day her family moved from Bellary to Sandur and she soon forgot about these children. Years later, in 1976, the family moved to Delhi in order to get over a personal tragedy and she took up a job. Then in 1983 she moved to NOIDA, Uttar Pradesh.
She was deeply disturbed by the sight of children being exploited all around her and also by the reports in newspapers and magazines about exploitation of children. Images of Bellary came back to mind, which was how the dream was born …… A dream of providing a home for these children, where they would not only get shelter, clothing, food and education but also feel as secure and confident as their more privileged peers.
Another decade passed before she could turn her dream into reality due to her responsibilities towards her family. In 1988, a chance meeting with an old friend directed her to PRADAN, a voluntary organization, for guidance. PRADAN offered her a fellowship of three months to enable her to visit various homes all over India and make an in depth study of the aspects involved in such projects. One such home where she spent twenty days is the Antar Bharati Balgram at Lonavla, near Mumbai. By this time she was able to identify friends who were willing to help her. The Society SAIKRIPA was formed and by March 1989 they succeeded in getting their society, SAIKRIPA, registered.

NIVEDA : PRESENT PROJECTS
BAL KUTIR: On 27th February 1990 BAL KUTIR formally opened its doors to children at F-44, Sector-20. It started with one child but now has 43 39children who are as happy and intelligent as any child who has his own family. Apart from this, 11 Eleven children have taken up jobs and are living independently,3 three girls have been married off and more than 75 40 children have been restored to their families with the co-operation of the police and the public. BAL KUTIR was set up not only to provide shelter and the basic needs of children, but also Home to provide them with love and affection. It strives to give these children emotional as well as physical security.
SAI SHIKSHA SANSTHAN: On 8th April 1991 SAI SHIKSHA SANSTHAN an English medium school was started in village with classes up to 2nd Std. Today the school has come up to the 10th std. Initially, it was planned to be set up in one of the slums of NOIDA, but on requests from some villagers who wanted a school in their village, it was set up in the village Vazidpur, Sector-135, Noida as there was no proper school in the vicinity; this village is about 16 KM away from the main town of Noida. It has strength of about 300 students coming from four surrounding villages and the economically weaker section of NOIDA. The children of Bal Kutir also study here. The school charges a monthly fee of only Rs. 200/- Rs.150/- per month. Apart from the academic basic education the children are taught activities like tailoring, dance, music and other art and crafts.
SAI BAL SANSAR: SAI BAL SANSAR is an informal education centre started in November 1999 for the benefit of the slum/street children of NOIDA with no rigidity for age limit. It provides free education and mid-day meal to the children. The main purpose of this was to divert these children towards education and spending time more fruitfully, rather than taking to begging and loitering around and thus falling prey to vices like smoking, gambling, drugs etc. After these children attain the level of education to fit into the regular schools, they are sent to SAI SHIKSHA SANSTHAN or any other school they prefer for pursuing and completing their Secondary Education.
SAI VATSALYA VATIKA “Sai Vatsalya Vatika” which means “Sai’s Garden of Love and Affection” has been started for children with special needs and endeavours to identify the innate talent and potential of each child separately, and nurture them in an appropriate manner through early intervention so as to maximize their potential. Since the learning process of “Special Children”, specially mentally challenged children, is different from that of so-called “Normal Children”, the school shall be committed to provide appropriate learning environment that is stimulating, secure and joyful, with an appropriate social and emotional setting in which the “Special Children” can blossom.
OBJECTIVES OF STUDY
- To develop an understanding of the community, its structure, resources and characteristics.
- To develop skills to analyze perceptions of community regarding their problems, needs and issues affecting their lives
- To develop skills in problem solving at individual, group and community levels, mobilize people around common concerns and formulate tentative strategies and programs to address some of the issues confronted
- To develop skills in community research.
- Gain access to practical information that is not yet vailable in courses and books related to community work.
While working with the FOundation and participating in its activities, I am able to find some relevant data. It contained following broad objectives
- Data collection
In this regard we started collecting data about the people who are helpless or homeless and there are no one to help them even not their family take a stand to take care for them. And apart from this there also some kind of people who are lost. This data gave a clear image about the exact no. of helpless people and whether or not they are in need of any medical aid. We found out that around 70% of these people were not having proper medical facilities before . They spent their whole day roaming here and there. Some of them even were quite rowdy and unruly due to bad friendship circles and sometimes have bad habit of alcohol consumption which can ruin their life. They need proper guidance what should be done. And this ngo provides all the facilities to improve their condition.
This data was based on the information received on personal level as proper survey was not possible.
I have also provide some medicines to the foundation for the people staying there for the betterment of their health.
After collecting the data it was important to convince their family. As they didn’t valued by their parents or unfortuntely reached here are getting true affections . As the people staying there are homeless or lost so it was necessary to create awareness among the people that how respecting and valuing people could give them a better life in future. Apart from this the NGO also promotes recently launched SWATCH BHARAT ABHIYAAN by our Prime minister “Shri Narendra Damodardas Modi” by taking various initiative in making the delhi clean and green for the betterment of our society.
And it had also promoted the rally for “NASHA MUKTI ABHIYAAN” which conveys the youth to not getting into addiction of various types of drugs which can be dangerous to their life.
CASE STUDY FORMAT
I have made the three case study on the individuals staying in the NGO, their good or bad habits and the contribution made by myself to the NGO such as donating medicines, clothes to them which I think is a less help made by myself. A little help by every people in the society make them feel good which can build their perception towards life and they don’t think as a burden to society.
- Ranjina Ma’am- she is the head of thus foundation. A sweet kind nature but strict too lady who has so many responsiblities in her arms and she is handelling them so well.
- Khushi-The most inteeligent kid among them who has so big dreams and honest and doing hard job to achieve that.
The outreach work was a different experience for me altogether. I have gone to a lot of places, met a lot of different people but firstly never felt so happy being around a bunch of people who are not even from the same social class and are so different. Being around these people was like a safe haven for me. I went to teach them a lot of
Things that how world is full of happiness but they in return taught me a lot of things like being selfless is huge achievement in one’s life, being with them for sometime make myself happy and themselves too. And this taught me the fact that “one person needs another person in their good and bad time.”
The love and respect these people have is enormous. Everything that I gave them was kept by them so safely. I thought this community work to be the same compulsory boring social work that I had to do in school. But this was altogether different. These people looked up to me to share their grievances and happiness. This love and respect made me care for these people a lot. I literally thinking that doing for them is not enough . one should give atmost some time to them so that they don’t feel alone in this world. I would occasionally get them food
and sweets. Few of these didn’t have proper clothes to wear. I even gave few of them clothes. I became more responsible for them and feel encouraged in helping them in giving medicines and in other stuffs.
These people managed to make a special place in my heart and our relationship will not surely not end with the end of my service hours. I will continue visiting them and spend some time whenever I get.
The Deinstitutionalisation of orphanages and childrens homes programme began in the 1950s, after a series of scandals involving the coercion of birth parents and abuse of orphans (notably at Georgia Tann‘s Tennessee Children’s Home Society). Many countries accepted the need to de-institutionalize the care of vulnerable children—that is, close down orphanages in favor of foster care and accelerated adoption. Moreover, as it is no longer common for birth parents in Western countries to give up their children, and as far fewer people die of diseases or violence while their children are still young, the need to operate large orphanages has decreased.
Major charities are increasingly focusing their efforts on the re-integration of orphans in order to keep them with their parents or extended family and communities. Orphanages are no longer common in the European community, and Romania in particular has struggled greatly to reduce the visibility of its children’s institutions to meet conditions of its entry into the European Union.
