Butterflies is a registered voluntary organization working with street and working children in Delhi since 1989. We believe in the right of every child to have a full-fledged childhood where s/he has the right to protection, respect, opportunities and participation in his/her growth and development. Butterflies is committed to a non-institutional approach, follows principle of democracy and promotes children’s participation in decision making as part of its programme planning, monitoring and evaluation. Given its belief in participation of street children in all our activities, it is more appropriately called a "Programme with Street Children”. Our programmes for children include Education, Health Care, Children’s Development Bank, Children’s Alternate Media (Radio, Theatre and Newspaper), Childline and Resilience Centre, Community Kitchen and Night Out, which are carried out in 12 contact areas in Delhi (a point where there is concentration of street/working children such as bus terminus, market, railway station). We also run 3 night shelters in Delhi. Butterflies also has a research, advocacy and training wing and Alliance Building that works to support mobilization of civil society and influences policies at all levels. We are active participants in national and international networks for advocating and promoting policies, programmes and actions to protect rights of children.
