Children's Day Celebration & Khelaghar Birthday Celebration
We had two reasons to celebrate! The children at Khelaghar, New Light Kolkata's boys home, not only celebrated their day and childhood (Children's Day!) but also proudly celebrated Khelaghar's 2nd birthday. The children sang and danced to celebrate the day. New Light Khelaghar completed two years in its effort to provide young boys of women who are in prostitution, the opportunity to grow up in a safe and secure environment and realize their full potential.
The Home provides safe shelter, formal and remedial education, counselling, comprehensive healthcare, nutritious meals, therapeutic, creative and recreational opportunities to the male children, aged between 4 to 18 years of prostitution workers. These services are imperative to ensure their physical safety, and provide them the opportunity to realize their full human potential.
