End Child homelessness and trafficking

India has the largest population of homeless children in the world. Cities like Delhi, not only have a concentration of homeless children, the fact that there are so many unprotected children makes these cities a concentration area for global child trafficking. By focusing on these areas we can make a true difference towards ending child homelessness and trafficking. When you partner with Dawas Ministries, you aren’t only feeding homeless children you are giving them what they need to escape circumstances that are often life-threatening.

- David's Story -

Overcoming Impossible Odds

When David was just a small boy, he lived alone in the streets. He was in constant fear that someone would kill him so he was often very sleep deprived. He was told that he was being punished for the evil things he did in a past life. 

David started coming to our feeding shelters for a good meal – and even found a safe place to sleep! After a few months, David decided that God loves him and has a good plan for his life. He left his suffering in the street behind and found safety and acceptance. 

Today, more than 13 years later, David is a healthy young man determined to share the good things he has received! He is seen here with his mentor after having received his degree from the University of North Bengal.

Caring for the Entire Family

Dawas Ministries Outreach Projects

Oftentimes, children are homeless as the result of a larger issue with their family; their parents lack food, finances, or the skills required to care for their child. This is why we have a variety of outreach projects to meet the needs in each area of the family.
