The Vulnerable Children and Youth (VCY) Program

PCI India took action in 2000 to empower marginalised and disadvantaged children and youth. The Vulnerable Children and Youth (VCY) Program recognises that meeting basic needs is crucial for a child’s ability to shape their own future. PCI believes that a supportive environment has the power to transform a life of deprivation into a life of empowerment.

Since April 2005, PCI India has operated a Shelter Home in Tauru village, located in the Nuh district of Haryana, bordering Delhi. This home specifically provides care for minor boys between the ages of 5 and 17. A dedicated team of six full-time staff and two part-time consultants manage the Shelter Home.

The Shelter Home prioritises the well-being of the boys in its care. This includes:

  • Regular health check-ups: Ensuring the boys receive proper medical attention.
  • Education: All residents attend a local government school, fostering academic development and social integration.
  • Counselling: Providing emotional support and guidance to help the boys navigate challenges.
  • Exposure visits: Broadening their horizons through educational and enriching trips.
  • In-house activities: Offering a variety of engaging activities to promote skills development, creativity, and well-being.

By providing a safe and nurturing environment, access to education, healthcare, and essential support services, the PCI India Shelter Home empowers these young boys to build a brighter future.
