Support A Child Program

People in the north-east part of India suffer from natural and physiological calamities, on top of that, economic development of the region is slower than the slug. Hence, VHP has undertaken a project under which boys and girls from the region are brought to a School-cum-Hostel facility in the suburbs of Jaipur, Rajasthan, India.

When we visited the hostel compound we found 21 boys from Assam and Meghalaya. These boys are aged from 6 years to 12 years. These boys from the North-East area are victims of violence and economic deprivation. There is great need for hostels in the North east. The VHP team brought these kids to this remote village of Rajasthan. Fifteen more boys will be added in the hostel soon.

Just like any hostel we visit we find a system, cleanliness in the facility, discipline and Samskara. Boys recited shloka and prayers to us, they gave a tour of their hall with bunk beds , the kitchen and recreation room where students do homework . Hostel has a large compound which boys use to play sports. Gurang and Sanjay were pretty good at playing soccer. All boys go to nearby Government schools. Soon these students will mingle with local children.

We met a Bengali swami ji who love to work with children. His presence brings a lot of confidence in the boys, he speaks their language and relates very well to their needs. It was very pleasant to meet him and the other teachers.

SAC (Support A Child) program was started by the World Hindu Council of America (VHPA) in 1985. Under this program we have been supporting more than 1000+ boys and girls all over Bharat.

These children are selected from remote areas of Bharat, many are orphans and many come from underprivileged backgrounds. Through SAC these children have received the quality education they deserve and have subsequently attended college education, technical education and even advanced degrees like Ph. D. and Doctor of Medicine. Today, many of these children are working as teachers, engineers, doctors and other professionals.

With the help of reputed service organizations like Sewa Bharati, Sewa Dham, Ramakrishna Mission and Bharat Kalyan Prathishthan and many more, the SAC team has selected more than 28+ hostels/schools and institutions from 18+ different states. These children stay in the hostels and get education at board certified schools. Along with the quality education, children receive medical aid, healthy/ nutritious food, school supplies, clothing and housing. These children get opportunities to learn, music, art, sports and samskara (values).
