Our Progress report for the first semester 2017:
In January 2017, we received the news that we had to leave the building in Dillibazar. The property had been sold. At first, we were anxious and worried . Where on earth do we go? Where do we find such a spacious building? We had to move and think fast as we only had two months to do so. Since December 2014, hundreds of children have sought and found use of the services of CPCS in the Dillibazar premises. It was a beacon, known by street-based children, official agencies, police, donors, friends and benefactors.
After brainstorming with the team, it was decided to move to Godawari, where the CPCS NGO already owned a piece of land. Here there was already a building however, renovation work had to be done to make it both habitable and child-friendly. There was not enough space to accommodate all the CPCS departments. Therefore, the existing building was refurbished and 2 extra buildings and a ground floor were rented. One building for CPCS International, a second building for the Recovery Center, the Emergency Line, and the Legal and Counselling Department. After the renovation works the Rehabilitation Center for Boys (DIC – Drop In Center) was established where street based children are able to stay in a short-term program.
It was for us a puzzle to find any logistic solutions to make both the Rehabilitation Center for Boys, the Recovery Center and the related departments child-friendly and safe. This was clearly a big change for our team both in professional and private terms. Due to Godawari being around 12 kilometres outside the city, team members had to move to live closer to their work. The advantage of all these moves and changes is that all children now live in a safe, green and fresh environment. They stay in a healthy place while their rehabilitation, socialization and reunification process is underway.
Meanwhile, we are now installed at the new location in Godawari and we are back in full action! The ultimate goal is to bring children back to their family and their communities in the context of deinstitutionalisation. By standing close to local communities and supporting children in their community, we want to prevent children from entering the streets of the big cities.
For those children living on the streets, CPCS remains the safe beacon where not only medical, legal and psychosocial services are available, but is also a place in which friendship and respect are of high value.
Thank you all for both the moral and financial support that has made it possible.
