Foster Homes aim at providing little children from the streets of Bengaluru with security and with a healthy living environment. The foster homes reproduce a convivial and family atmosphere for the children to heal the wounds they have developed in the street, grow up in trustful social circles. As a preventive action, Building Blocks India enrolls them at the youngest age in order to avoid the psychological disorders induced by the dangers encountered in the street and offer them the childhood they deserve.

Foster homes are also responsible for the children’s education and enroll them in English Medium Schools to give them better future opportunities.


Activities in the homes

  • Education and Follow-up

All the children are enrolled in private English Medium Schools and are provided with homework assistance.

  • Medical Follow-up

Scheduled medical follow-up are implemented. Drugs, vitamins and dietary supplements are provided to the children if necessary.

  • Intergenerational and Social Opening Programs

Outings are planned in neighborhood social centers for the children to interact with people of all backgrounds. Those centers are for students, orphans, disabled people, seniors, etc. This activity aims at strengthening the girls’ social skills by expanding their circle of acquaintances and by promoting local interactions.

  • Playground and Recreational Time

Recreational moments are scheduled every day for the children to play and develop their creativity. Girls are assisted by the house manager and by volunteers, to stimulate their creativity abilities. Play times are useful to promote curiosity and sharing values.
