Collaboration

To achieve our multiple objectives, we work with a number of interested individuals, private institutions, NGOs, and Government bodies. The key agencies with whom we regularly interact with include:
  • Child Welfare Committee
  • Juvenile Justice Board
  • District Administration
  • Social Welfare Department
  • Education Department
  • Health Department
  • Labour Department
  • Police Department

Promoting such an attitude and working in this way are critical for success. It is in fact the collaboration with the City Municipal Corporation of Cochin that enabled Don Bosco Sneha Bhavan to be established in the first place. The Corporation provides basic necessities such as buildings, food and clothing. It is then our responsibility to deliver the services.
Today, the City Municipal Corporation of Cochin can boast of Sneha Bhavan as a joint venture, the first of its kind in India. The collaborative approach between Government and NGO first experimented at Sneha Bhavan has become a model for duplication across Kelera and India.
