Transitional Shelter SETU
LEEDO operates a Transitional Shelter SETU ~ providing a bridge from street-life to home-life ~ at Babu Bazar, where children, who are in need of a shelter, are invited to stay. The idea is that a secure home is fundamental to a child’s health and wellbeing and LEEDO has promised to provide this.
When a child arrives at the shelter, we immediately address his or her basic needs including nutritious food, clothing, a bed, medical treatment, entertainment and essential facilities. We also counsel such children, listening to and acting on their preferences. During the past year we have regularly supported approximately 3,000 such children from SETU.
Due to a lack of funding we were forced to close the transitional shelter in March this year. We are putting all our efforts to find a funding partner for the upcoming years. Please contact us if you are interested in helping to fund the shelter.
