INTRODUCTION

Children of the World (India) Trust, (CWB) is a non-profit, non-political Indian Charitable Trust
established in 1982 that aims to work towards the growth, development and progress of children
and their families. It was established in Navi Mumbai (Nerul) in the year1997. Our
rehabilitation program is built on the core belief that every child is a potential resource and not a
social liability. Their motto is: ‘Every child deserves a home.”

Their Vision

Children of the World (India) Trust, (CWB) is a non-profit, non-political Indian Charitable Trust
established in 1982 that aims to work towards the growth, development and progress of children
and their families.
Their Mission

education and support to be independent. In addition to this, we also aim to provide nutrition so
that health conducive to learning may be maintained. We believe in nurturing our children
towards a brighter future. We are reaching out to 30,000 people and 1200 children.

Objectives:
 To provide educational, health and nutritional service to sponsored children and their
families.

 To provide support to sponsored children and their families through need based
community projects.

 To prevent disintegration of families due to socio- economic reasons

Adoption Program:
Adoption continues to be a beautiful way of building families. In 2015, Central Adoption
Resource Authority (CARA), a nodal body for adoption of Indian children, introduced an online
portal to centralize in-country and inter-country adoptions. Children of the World has integrated
this procedure in the adoption process, following all the mandates that have been set up. This
new procedure aims at avoiding multiple registration, facilitating a quick, transparent process.

Child Care Centre – Our Home


Vishwabalak Kendra, is not just a house but a home full of love, comfort and warmth. Every wall
in the centre is painted with vibrant colours and adorned with objects like birdhouses, shapes and
posters to appeal the children living here. An open area, right in the middle of the centre has
slides and swings to refresh them after a day of learning.
The centre is surrounded by greenery and the numerous windows. Open spaces allow plenty of
fresh air and sunlight to fill the corridors which provides the children with a bright, cheerful and
healthy atmosphere to play in.
The view of the outside world from the corridors allows the children to see people playing in the
playground and develop interests in sports. An aquarium and a ball pit ensures that there is no
limit for fun.
Vishwabalak Kendra has the best facilities to ensure that the children here enjoy good physical
and mental health. This coupled with the unconditional love given by the dedicated caretakers,
makes Vishwabalak Kendra one of a kind in providing a blissful environment that stimulates
healthy growth and learning.

PROJECT

Our task was to gain experience by working in a Non- governmental organisation. A few tasks
were doled out to our group. Some of them are:

• We were advised to make the NGO's twelve-month report.

• We were advised to make mindfulness with respect to kids adoption and sponsoring kids.

• Our undertaking was to manage the physically challenged children and comprehend their
feelings.

• We were given the task to instruct the under privileged children.

• We likewise commended children’s day in the NGO and did each conceivable thing to fulfill
the children’s needs and make them happy.

• We likewise cleared the play area with so that the kids can celebrate their sports day.

• We were made a request to connect with the children and find out about their hobbies and
interests.

• We additionally got some information about the issues they look in their day by day lives and
how would they overcome them.

• We influenced them to play distinctive recreations and furthermore showed them in an


unexpected way.

• We went to their two communities to communicate with the kids.

• We were asked to set up a children’s day report and take photos of the considerable number
of children there.

• We instructed the kids some self-protection strategies moreover.

There were sure issues that we confronted while working in the NGO-

Firstly , the NGO doesn't have appropriate caretakers of the kids, the way in which the children
are dealt with is a noteworthy issue. The NGO gives convenience to kids just underneath the age
of 6. The NGO is then subject to other NGO's. Also, the NGO is totally dependent on volunteers
and no appropriate head or in control or a few divisions is there who can keep a legitimate check
of the considerable number of tasks and activities.

There is nobody to keep a check on the caretakers and the exercises done by them. The
caretakers speak in boisterous voice with kids. This can expedite negative effect on the brains of
children. The caretakers treat youngsters badly and they don't think about this as an obligation.

One major issue that we saw in this NGO is that the kids don't know how to talk and write in
English. They were never shown this dialect and their primary concentrate was dependably on
Marathi. We additionally showed them the nuts and bolts of English dialect which is a very
important aspect in everyone's life today. Several other subjects are not given due significance in
the NGO’s coaching centers.

There are no co-curricular activities for the kids. The main focus is only on studies. There are no
programs , activities or learning experiences that complement, in some way, what students are
learning in school. Co-curricular activities develop the personality of the students as well as
reinforce the classroom learning. It helps in intellectual development. They provide support to
the students to venture into professional fields like fashion, music, painting, art, acting,
photography, and many more. No personality development classes are held in the NGO to
improve or develop different skills of the kids. Communication, listening, speaking, reading and
writing skills must be developed in order to enhance one’s personality.

There are a very few therapies that can overcome the disabilities of physically and slow-witted
kids in the NGO. What's more, there are no exercises by which contribution of extraordinary kids
can be expanded. And they can participate in the real world activities.

Page 8
“Every child deserves a home.”
Another issue was that the infrastructural facilities of the NGO were fair, they were not up to the
mark, and there was less space for the children to play and roam around freely to do whatever
they want.

They do not have any directing and counseling sessions for the kids which is an absolute
necessity as they don't know about their capacities and abilities and what they need to do in their
future. Counseling sessions helps a person in discovering approaches to manage intense subject
matters, to find out about your own particular qualities and shortcomings, the things which you
can work upon and the ones in which you will dependably succeed.

Understanding where the perplexity and difficulties lie will help grow best practice approaches
kids welfare administration. Still parents overlook issues like child education, child adoption just
because of their old mindset.

Parents don't think once while leaving their new borns and infants, they don't think about their
child’s safety, essential needs, the love and care that they need and security of their child.
The NGO doesn’t have social awareness programs in which they can show the importance of
child education in this world. They can also make people aware of their adoption program so that
the people who want children can approach them. The main problem of the NGO was the limited
resources and irresponsible caretakers which can be worked upon.

METHODOLOGY

The centre is home to children who are 6 years of age. The centre provides the children with
necessary facilities they need for their development. The centre also serves as a measure for
growth and development of children outside the organisation who need support. This support is
not limited to only children but also for the adults who are suffering from HIV and TB.
The staff and the volunteers carry out different tasks that are assigned to them overtime. They
need to manage the centre as well the people outside. It is a complex task and needed to be done
with utmost care. Volunteers have to perform variety of roles which are assigned to them, From
helping the staff members in their day to day activities to helping children by education them as
well as entertaining them to keep their minds fresh and full of life.

The volunteers are mostly involved in :


1. Completing the assigned duties by the staff, in our case it was completion of annual
report and Children’s day report.
2. Interacting with the children, helping them in every possible manner.
3. Monitoring the day to day activities of children in the centre.
4. Teaching the students outside the centre.
5. Interacting with the people of quarry, who need help.
6. Motivating children to participate in activities.
7. Working with staff in their activities.

A week on the field:


13th November – Day 1:

 Our beautiful enlighten journey started with a formal introduction by Mr. Arun Chede
followed by introduction of NGO, Vishwa Balak Kendra.
 What stood next for us was exploration of place filled with innocence of beautiful kids
and their stories.

Page 10
“Every child deserves a home.”
 Since Children’s day was just round the corner we started to put are souls and creativity
to bring the most beautiful smile on kid’s faces on their special day.
 We all came with a plan to make children’s day more entertaining and happening for
kids, we made sure to involve children in as many activities possible right from singing,
dancing and games.
 Meanwhile we got to meet that innocent kid within us who was lost somewhere in this
entire journey called life.
 We then completed the work and left the place but our souls decided to stay.

14th November – Day 2:

 Second day of our journey started, although we completed our work a day before but
something felt missing so we started to decorate the space that was left undone.
 Finally we completed decoration, and place was ready to start celebration.
 And the fun started, we made kids to dance on their tunes and sing their hearts out, it was
amazing to witness life without layers. Their eyes sparkled and place got filled with aura
of enthusiasm in its purest form.
 Staff of NGO took even more interest than us in making the day memorable for kids and
they did their best to bring the best for the day.
 We divided ourselves and staff in 3 groups, 1st group was given responsibility to look out
for kids and involve them in all the activities, 2nd group helped visitors in carrying out
activities they planned for kids and 3rd group was responsible for clicking pictures.
 People from all over the city came to wish children and brought different – different gifts
for them and also people from other NGO’s came and involved children in different
activities and helped them to learn things which were alien to them.

15th November- Day3


 It was time for us to look life from different lenses so Mr. Mohan took us to slums and
their community centers Shirvane Quarry and Mahatma Gandhi quarry and it was then
we got a reality check, before that day even small problems seemed like big challenges in

Page 11
“Every child deserves a home.”
life but then we got to know that circumstances in that space were way difficult than we
could have possibly imagined, then and there all we could think was to thank for all that
we have got in life and think for the ways to make life of people living in those slums a
bit better.
 Well even good thoughts are of no use if we cannot bring them to life so it was time to go
a little dipper in people’s life to bring a change in their lives, so we started interacting
with the students at Mahatma Gandhi Community Center, and got to know about their
interest, aspirations, goals and more precisely a hope to see a difference in their lives.
 Communication is the key in today’s world and when clubbed with analytics can do
wonders in life so it was necessary to introduce students with this deadly combination so
we started to give them basic knowledge of both English and Mathematics.
 Physical health is possibly the most underrated thing in present time so invariably it
became important for us to explain them about the importance of being physically fit and
introduced them different outdoor games and made their playing ground fit to play on.
 We also came across peoples who suffered from tb and got to know how they recovered
from the same with the help of NGO, Children of the world asked them about their life
after decease and what do they look forward to do in life.
 There was this one guy who was pursuing MBA from a reputed college and was there to
do his internship under the same NGO, the most pleasing thing was to know he belonged
to the same place, his childhood has seen this all and came out from this life by his sheer
hard work, It was delighting to see that hard work and perseverance can elucidate the
most opaque situations.

RECOMMENDATIONS

We live in a country where not all children get the privilege to live with their respective families.
There are cases where children are left on the streets, in temples or even in garbage bins on the
road. They are ruthlessly abandoned without even having a thought about the future of these
innocent children. These children then grow without getting the love of their actual parents and
knowing what family is all about.

There have been various NGOs in India who work for these children and help them grow, learn
and get the love they deserve. Children of the World (India) Trust is one such organisation
known for the selfless efforts in upliftment of the society. They are known for providing these
children with a bright future. They work for their education and overall development of the kids
which includes computer training, grooming their personal talents like dancing, singing etc and
even giving them emotional support.

It felt great and compassionate working with Vishwa Balak Kendra and knowing this aspect of
our society. The children over there were interactive and actively participated in all the activities
we made them perform. Working and interacting with the kids there was an amazing experience
but some of the things which we recommended after working and realising what the actual needs
of the children is that apart from getting their basic needs fulfilled by the NGO, they also require
motherly love and feeling of being in a family. Also, they are in a need of better computer
teachers who can help them with the start from the basic level since these children have seen
these type of machines the very first time.

Another aspect that can be worked upon is making them familiar with the outside world
especially with the children of the same age group and the same capabilities. When this will
happen, they will be able to cope up with the world when they enter the competitive world. For
this to make happen, we can invite kids from nearby schools. The interaction between the NGO
kids and the kids from various families will make a change in the mindset of the kids.

Not all kids are same. Some maybe good in sports, some in art while some others in dancing and
sports. The organisation must must keep weekly classes for various areas and the kids must be
given the freedom to choose the class they want to sit in. by this, they will not only be able to
learn those skills but also introspect about their own self.
The way the children are treated in the NGO is a major concern. Sometimes talking to children
in a loud voice can bring a negative impact on the minds of innocent children. So, it must be
taken care that there can soft and polite ways to make children learn some different attributes of

Page 13
“Every child deserves a home.”
their nature. By this, they’ll not only learn the desired behaviour but also learn the way of living
in a society.

We would also recommend that when they are in the early stage of schooling, they are made
aware of the future career options so that they can have a rough picture of what they want to opt
in their future. Also, since there are some physically and mentally challenged, they must be
provided with some more therapies in order to overcome their weaknesses.

The last recommendation would be that the families who adopt these children must be made to
come to the knowledge of the child. They must be told about the child’s nature, his behaviour,
his special qualities and talents and other important things.

To conclude, each child is unique and special in his/her own way. Children of the World (India)
Trust is doing a great work towards these homeless children. These were the few
recommendations we found which can be implemented, rest the NGO is doing a great job.

LEARNING EXPERIENCE

We had wonderful experience while working with volunteers of Children of the word trust as
well as working for children. We always heard that it feels great to help others and keep others
safe and we loved to provide our contribution to them. We interned with a positive attitude, good
work ethic and a willingness to get involved wherever it was needed. We learned a lot while
volunteering in the Ngo. The internship with children of the world trust can be described
through some lasting memories that we managed to collect.

When we first met our mentor, Mr Arun at our Ngo before starting our work he wanted us to
know about the background of the Ngo and their different centers. He took us to the different
centers which were located in the slum areas, his main intention was to make us realise about the
conditions and the background from which the students were coming. The children came from a
background, where there was no atmosphere of education. Their parents keep migrating, hence
even if they learn something, they tend to forget. Lack of interest and support hinder their
educational growth. He explained the problems and the situations faced by these children which
made us realise how comfortably we are living.

We likewise observed the difficulties that are engaged with the administration of a NGO. We can
envision how hard it must be to oversee more than 100 children of different age groups. We
were given different task each day so that we had an overall idea and knowledge about the work
done by the Ngo such as teaching students, concentrating on their overall development, field
work (for example as they planned to have sports day so they engaged the children for
preparation of the field), maintaining their accounts. By assigning different task each day it gave
us an overview of the work. We learned how to manage different task simultaneously within
given time frame.

The most challenging part was of course managing the .kids. It was a task to go around the
home and gather the kids. Then they were to be held in a room by one volunteer, while the other
went around looking for some more. While some of them were very enthusiastic to learn, others

Page 15
“Every child deserves a home.”
considered themselves just too cool to stay put. One very typical scene would be that two kids
would start fighting and while we made efforts to stop them, others would become spectators.

But When we would manage to get the two kids to negotiate, we would look up only to find the
room empty.

Members and employees of the NGO supported us a lot, and gave us ideas also. Atmosphere
there was awesome, close to nature, peaceful, we got to know individuals who have dedicated
their entire lives for the improvement of society; with no self - pick up or ravenous rationale
behind it. They picked social work as their calling; since they needed to do it, not for picking up
attention or profiting; but rather for the fulfillment of delight of giving. Respect for them truly.

The main thing which we have learned from this internship is to keep ourselves involved in all
these kinds of social work as it make us realise how beautiful our life become when we are their
foe others in need and it gives us a ray of hope as well as the blessed feeling which is not at all
easy to get these days. Despite all the hurdles it truly moved us to offer back to the society. our
overall experience gave us another angle to look and contribute towards our society.
