Pune, 31st March 2023: The Central Government has approved the Maharashtra State’s ‘Pathdarshi Mobile Squad’ project, an innovative initiative to integrate street children into mainstream education and society. The project will be implemented on a pilot basis for six months in six districts, including Pune, Thane, Nashik, Mumbai suburbs, Mumbai city, and Nagpur.

To launch the project, NGOs are invited to submit proposals for setting up a Pathdarshi Mobile Team, according to the Pune District Women and Child Development Officer. Until the project receives funds from the Central Government, the Juvenile Justice Fund will cover the project’s cost. The mobile team, consisting of a counsellor, teacher, driver, and caretaker, will be appointed for a 25-seater bus/van on combined remuneration. The bus will ply between 9 am to 6 pm in the district and cities where the number of street children is high.

Voluntary NGOs have seven days to submit proposals to set up Pilot Mobile Teams to the District Women and Child Development Officer, Gulmarg Park, Co-op. Housing Society, Near Jadhav Bakery, 29/2, Somwar Peth, Pune – 411011.

The Pathdarshi Mobile Squad project will provide an opportunity for street children to receive education and be integrated into society. The project’s pilot phase will provide insights into the program’s feasibility and allow for modifications to be made. The initiative is expected to benefit thousands of street children across the state and help them receive a better education and future prospects.
