Rehabilitation of Homeless with SPYM

DLF Foundation and Society for Promotion of Youth and Masses (SPYM) are collaborating for an initiative for rehabilitation of the homeless engaged in beggary in Delhi by providing them shelter, nutrition support and education while also increasing awareness on alternative livelihoods and ensuring their reintegration into the mainstream.

Through this drive, 174 adults have been rehabilitated and have been shifted to SPYM Shelters in Nizamuddin Colony.

45 children, who were previously begging for a living have been rehabilitated and mobilised for formal schooling. The children are being aided with admission in primary schools, and around 19 children have been admitted to a local government school in the vicinity of Nizamuddin. Additionally, children are also being imparted computer training and being given non-formal education at the SPYM Nizamuddin Shelter.

SPYM has enabled skill training for adult women in the Shelter and are being provided a workspace and raw material so that they can be involved in entrepreneurial ventures like designing and selling bead necklaces to support themselves. Additionally, sewing classes have also been started for these women and regular motivational classes are being organised by counsellors at the encampment to motivate community members to shift to the Shelters. 23 underprivileged women were provided Skill Development / Vocational Training in Stitching at the Shelter.
