ASHRAY- Society for Health and Empowerment- is a non-profit making organization based in
Jaipur, Rajasthan. It has been registered by State Govt in July 2009 by professionals with more
than 10 years experience in the same field.
The president of the board is Bhargeshwar Prasad Shukla, a retired engineer, but the founder and
key person of this organization is its CEO and Medical Director, Dr Avdhesh Gupta.

Currently he is working as honorary member of the State Government’s Children Welfare

Committee of Jaipur District. His responsibility to ensure foster care, rehabilitation of children
found unattended in the district.

He has also been nominated as State Level Observer for the National Employment Guarantee
Scheme of the Government of India for Rajasthan State.

He is presently working on voluntary basis with different NGOs as medical consultant and
devoting much of his time to planning and implementing programs of ASHRAY Organization.

He began his involvement with the NGO world in 1998, when he was Deputy Director in the
Government health system in Rajasthan as in-charge of HIV/AIDS section.

As such, FXB, an NGO working for AIDS orphans families/person caring them got in contact
with Dr. Gupta in the same year. He collaborated voluntarily with them for 5 years, besides
preparing and implementing the AIDS control program in Rajasthan. Then at the request of FXB,
he joined the Indian Arm of FXB International NGO after taking voluntary retirement from
Government Service in June-2003 and became Senior Regional Director in July-2007. He was
in charge of 30 employees and of a budget of 70,000 dollars, working up to 8 districts in
Rajasthan and oversaw the creation of a wide range of projects to raise the awareness of
HIV/AIDS and to try to alleviate the sufferings linked to that disease, especially as far as
children are concerned. Now he set up his own organization ASHRAY, to make the best of the
excellent contacts and in-depth knowledge of the issue and the local environment.
ASHRAY is a team, three staff members and two volunteers who have been working together on
the same issue for the past six years.

1- Activities and Proposal

The street children

ASHRAY is working with children from two areas of Jaipur city, the platform kids living in
open below the railway bridge and the street children of the”22 go-downs” area. They are the
most neglected and dejected children by society. No NGO or Government agencies or any
individuals are ready to provide them a shelter, while Ashray has decided to work primarily with

Many of those kids have deep psychological problems, violent and absurd behavior; they are
addicts to various types of narcotics. They are the target of physical and mental abuse, often
sexually exploited. Consequently, they are exposed to the risk of HIV/AIDS as well as many
other diseases and infections. They are living in distress in the open, with no basic food, no
medical treatment. No education or psycho social support is provided to them. It’s very
necessary to take care of those kids on a short term basis but it also requires a regular longtime
effort. For that to be a successful process and to change the mind set of such children some of
their dreams should be fulfilled to an extent. It is a slow but continuous process.
Presently ASHRAY is providing regular health care, counseling, informal education, Cloths in
camp mode twice a month for 80 children. An in-depth counseling takes place twice a week for 5
to 6 kids. But to have a sustainable effect, this is not satisfying. It is essential to take the kids
away for a few hours from their environment, for which a day shelter is needed, a facility of its
kind not available with any where in city. ASHRAY is first taking lead for these kids and making
large efforts to establish a day shelter for them. To set up this shelter is our key ambition.

The proposed project is based on the experience gained during last few years of operation in
Jaipur. Based on the investigation-cum-analysis of life of children living on railway platform of
Jaipur station and other vulnerable children, the priority needs identified are: Immediate health
services, security against violence and child abuse, counseling of children & attempt to ensure
family re-unification, basic education, drug de addiction, vocational training to grown up
children, life-skills and health education, rehabilitation in the mainstream society with dignity
and self-respect. For this, the first step is a shelter.

In the long term, ASHRAY’s aim is to implement in Rajasthan a project devised in Bogota,
Colombia, (Dr. Avdhesh Gupta studied this project in person) where a group of such children
were allowed to come to shelter voluntarily and have choice to go back to street in evening.
Gradually the children who attend the shelter regularly may be offered for short stay away from
city in resort where they have fund recreation information education and vocational training to
pass time. The period of stay may me one to three months depending to change of mind set of
each child.
Those children agree to join the program voluntary they will be admitted to boarding school or
enrolled for vocational training and can be made productive to the society.

Following this pattern of three phases, we are confident and hopeful that 50% of the kids
entering in program at initial level will be out of the street.

The Tentative Budget proposal for first phase of day shelter for which request is made is as follows
