Jamghat is like a small hostel that provides food and shelter to street kids but there’s more. It also offers them education and avenues for training in various vocational streams—from fashion designing to car driving. "The idea is to make them self-sufficient and get them back into the mainstream," says Amit Sinha, the prime mover behind the movement.
An NGO that has no regular source of income, it sustains itself through community-based theatre performances. "We use theatre to make people aware of homelessness and the money to sustain Jamghat," says Sinha. Its volunteers also hold workshops with college students and pump the resources back for the welfare of street kids. There are around 200 volunteers, 20 of them regular, who contribute to Jamghat. There is no other source of funding for the group.
