The Punorjibon Protection Home, translated as ‘new beginnings’, was established in 2005 to cater to solvent addicted street and slum children. Before the boys enter Punorjibon, they undergo a detoxification program in Mukti, with intensive counselling support. This support continues when they enter Punorjibon Protection Home.

Punorjibon caters for the holistic development of each boy, through the delivery of nutrition, healthcare, education and recreational activities. The adolescents’ skills and areas of interest are identified, and they are provided with necessary employable vocational training. The ultimate aim is to rehabilitate and then reintegrate the boys into mainstream society through employment and social integration. Recreational activities such as football, karate, dance and photography are also provided for the boys, to not only instill the importance of team work, but to allow the boys to be boys.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”22px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”35707″ img_size=”550×450″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_shadow_border” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row margin_top=”60px”][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”41127″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_shadow_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_empty_space height=”22px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]HOPE initiated a program in 2005 to help these children, as rehab is the first step on the path to a normal life. Once through the program, children usually go on to live in one of our protection homes, where they receive on-going support, love and care.
