Outreach

SathSath is commitment to providing support for children and youth in their own environment so, for this reason, the organization operates primarily through “field Based” outreach programs.  These programs involve trained street educators and peer educators (SathSath staff who have come from a street background) making regular visits to meet children, assess their needs and provide appropriate support.  The support provided during field visits includes emergency first aid, group counseling, sport and recreational activities and alternative education.   Field visiting programs are undertaken during both the day and night.

After a period of time a strong rapport between the children & youth and staff often develops, and at this point the children may be interested in attending SathSath’s non-residential Learning Centre (drop-in center) and other program for further support.  At the centre, they can receive a range of different activities and services depending on their needs and interests.
