Birth for Change first main project “Tejus Home” was established as a partnership between the NGO Dil Se, and recognized by the Child Welfare Committee, Ernakulum, Kerala. Tejus Home is a caring environment where pregnant, unmarried teenagers, and teenage mothers and their babies are given a safe and nurturing place to live. Most of these girls are pregnant because of violence; they range in ages from 13-18 years old. In most cases their families have sold them out, abandoned them, forced them into child marriages, they literally have nowhere else to turn. Tejus Home provides shelter, food, clothes, education, life-skills, counseling, career training, self-defense, and CSA (child sexual abuse) awareness programs. On a case-by-case basis, we follow-up on court orders regarding the sentencing of the child abusers.
Birth for Change provides all maternal health care for the girls of Tejus Home free of cost. It is your donations that keep the program sustainable! These girls and their baby’s need your love and support. Please contact us today to find out how you can help!
