About Jamghat-

Jamghat’s origin lies in a stage play, which was initially planned and scripted, in 2003, under the supervision of Action Aid India. The play was performed for the then visiting Prince Charles. It was an instant success and spread all over the country and abroad. Jamghat, the NGO, was established towards the end of 2003, when this group of street children decided against going back to the life on the streets. Children named themselves JAMGHAT, meaning "a lively gathering". From the unplanned beginning, Jamghat has grown into a holistic organization that provides education, vocational training, counselling, health care, theatre opportunities, and emotional support to street children.


About Project –

Sadak, our outreach programme is to connect with street children and their families. Programme will be the first step in journey of these children to change their course of life. It is important to conduct such outreach programme at the location where children are based because being used to life on street, neither children nor their parents are motivated nor interested in coming to a full day centre. Sadak will be an interactive programme for six days in a week using remedial classes, theatre, visual arts, counselling and parent interaction as core activities.
