Aanchal (Bhopal)

Aanchal is the frontier mission initiated in 2010 for rehabilitating Street/ slum/ Railway Platform Children in and around Bhopal. In the month of September 2010 Fr. Anil Mathew was appointed to initiate the Frontier Ministry on behalf of St. Province Bhopal. Initially the programmes for the street children were operated in a temporary set up. It was formally inaugurated on 1st March 2011 by Rev. Fr. Provincial, Jose Paul CMI. The major thrusts of this initiative are to address various issues related to street children, reinstate their lost childhood and provide wings to their dreams. Presently Aanchal is collaborating with the Government and Non-government organizations who are engaged with the similar activities for street children especially those who are in need of care and protection and with those juveniles who are in conflict with the law. We address the issues related to health, hygiene, shelter and non-formal education etc. The appointment of Aanchal as a Collab agency for Railway CHILDLINE  by CHILDLINE India Foundation was a recognition for Aanchal for its commitment to serve the best interest of children who need care and protection.
