We address the specific needs of children, and our social workers work closely with local governors and community organisations to help make education, healthcare, nutrition and family support available to young children. Our Hot Meal and Sponsorship Programmes provide children with meals, equipment, clothes and school supplies.

Because of the numbers limitation 600 children, mainly from the shanty district, do not have access to early primary education.
We supports 32 of the poorest children, providing clothes, stationary, school equipment, winter play area, sanitation and renovated classrooms.
The children’s hostel was provided with 60 new beds and essential bedding.
Asral distributed healthy food to 90 children from the ages of six to eighteen. The children are trained with vocational skills in sewing, carpentry and practical skills that will enable them to achieve a livelihood when they leave.
Most street children come from the shanty districts, from broken homes, divorced parents, families with no employment, mothers who can’t look after them, parents who suffer from alcoholism. These are all problems that Maitreya Charity is committed to preventing.
