Adruta Children Home (A unit of RAWA Academy) has been doing pioneering work in the field of rehabilitation of abandoned, unclaimed, parentless, and destitute children, especially girl children, in need of care and protection.
Amidst India’s glowing success and growing prosperity, there is a hidden India in which a segment of children populace, court deprivation, neglect, and destitution. This holocaust is waging a silent war against millions of choice-less and voiceless children, especially girl children, abandoned by parents. The perpetrators are poverty, undernutrition, malnutrition, negligence, and gender discrimination.
The objective is not only to ensure the healthy upkeep of such children but provide proper education for their psychic nurture. The congenial environment is provided so that the latent potentialities in them get unfolded and they grow into excellence in order to become the prized assets of the society and join the social mainstream. Presently, there are 450 children in ten different centers across the State i.e. Bhubaneswar, Rayagada, Bolangir, Sundergarh, Keonjhar, Baripada, Angul, Dhenkanal, Puri, and Cuttack. Children Homes are located at district Headquarters so that children have access to the best of the available facilities in education and healthcare. Children join Adruta Home as young as newborns or one day old or in their early infancy and stay until they are at least 22 years of age, emotionally and academically fit to begin their life. The Homes are duly recognized by the Department of Women and Child Welfare under Juvenile Justice Act, Government of Odisha.
