Every day, thousands of children in India are forced to live in the streets, denied of their fundamental right to food, shelter and education and subjected to physical abuse and exploitation. To put an end to this social injustice, Mr. Jose Maveli founded the Janaseva Sisubhavan organization in 1996 to save and protect these street children. His first step was to provide scholarships and educational materials to the children from poor families and then, in 1997, the organization started to give out lunch to about 300 children. The project spread to several schools and in time more than 600 students were given food every day.

Upon arrival at Janseva Shishubhaven, be warmly welcomed with a traditional giving of garlands. Then, receive a tour of the center accompanied by the Matron. Enjoy a time of cultural entertainment by the children. Later, eat a traditional vegetarian Kerala lunch with the children. After lunch, engage with the children through games and sports such as volley ball, basketball, and cricket.
