Offer has two permanent residential facilities for children who were abandoned on the streets. We believe just providing shelter is not enough. We focus on empowering these children through education and vocational trainings so that they can grow up to become a contributing citizen of the society.
In addition to classroom education, we offer courses in performing arts to these kids so that they can express themselves. We take care of their health and nutrition.These kids frequently go for field trips, cultural programs and expeditions that expose them to the world outside the facility. Children from Apanghar interact with kids from other communities during these visits. These children show their talents by participating in extra-curricular activities held in these events.
On various occasions, Apanghar acts as an emergency shelter for lost boys and girls who come under the jurisdiction of Baranagar, Kashipur and Chitpur police stations in Kolkata. Thus ensuring no minor spends a single night at the police station. We also accept kids and youth who come under the jurisdiction of Child Welfare Committee (CWC) of Government of West Bengal.
