Children and young people living on the pavements or in congested housing around the Agra railway platforms are highly vulnerable to abuse, exploitation and trafficking. We are working with the community to protect the rights of children, increasing their sense of worth and providing them with choices. This is achieved through a drop-in centre for children and training opportunities for the adolescents, literacy and sewing schools for young women in the surrounding communities, referrals to other organisations and practical support for families.
Ps Paul C Matthew has been managing LifeHouse Railway Kids since it commenced 10 years ago. His faithful service in the community has established strong networks with schools, health care, NGO’s, Police, business and local government, all of which can be utilised to support the vulnerable families that LifeHouse works with. This ministry creates links to our church planting program.
