Rainbow Homes Program – What We Do
The Rainbow Homes Programmed currently runs 45 homes in the country for boys and girls that formerly lived and survived on the streets of our urban cities. These homes are located in Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune, Patna and Anantpur and collectively house nearly four thousand children. Each home is run in cooperation with the State Government (including partial funding), and operates under the Right to Education Act, or Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, under the Department of Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development.
The parent NGO of this foundation – Association for Rural and Urban Needy, or ARUN – is a registered society, headquartered in Andhra Pradesh. With a complete profile of registrations, including licensing for 80G and FCRA registration, ARUN has spearheaded nearly two decades of impactful social development interventions for homeless children, men and women in India’s growing urban cities. The organization believes in working with several stakeholders – including grassroot-level work and advocacy with the government and civil society – to bring about sustainable, long-term and relevant changes to society.
