History of Auxilium Navajeevana

Navajeevana means new life. Auxilium Navajeevana a non-governmental, non – profitable voluntary Organization was established in the year 1995, for children in need of care and protection between the age group of 6 to 18. It aims Young at Risk, due to various circumstances, live in deprivation, grow up in Families that are disintegrated etc. This category includes the homeless, the neglected, and the destitute, Rag Pickers, Child Laborers. Victims of Child Trafficking and girl children living on the streets of Bangalore.

This centre for girls in difficult Circumstances was a project of “SAVE A LIFE PLAN (INDIA) of Canada origin. The Bangalore Multipurpose Social Service Society (BMSSS) had taken up this project at Kammanahalli. But they were unable to continue and were looking for someone who would take up this task. At this time the Salesian Sisters of Don Bosco (FMA) entered into the history of the centre.

With the blessing and encouragement of His Grace, Rt. Rev. Alphonsus Mathias DD – then Archbishop of Bangalore, the Sisters ventured into this mission with courage and optimism. Thus we found a home to shelter the homeless and abandoned girls of Bangalore city. The first girl a little ‘Rascal’ from K.R. Market was taken and sheltered her and coached her for the school. Gradually the numbers increased. Some girls from the slums also stayed during the day and learnt some skills and values for life. They were taught arts and crafts, tailoring and embroidery. Those who were able to study were sent for formal education. They were treated with friendliness, kindness and concern which brought in them a marvelous transformation.

The agreement for Navajeevana, Kammanahalli was for two years. Hence we have to look for another shelter; at the end we found a suitable place at Chamarajpet. Thanks to the effort of our sisters Auxilium Navajeevana Chamarajpet was blessed. It was found beneficial that the older ones and freshers could be separated. The school going children could not be shifted easily and they could continue their schooling at Kammanahalli itself and the new ones will taken care of at Chamarajpet.

As the years rolled by our children reached high level status in life at par with excellent job holders. Some are given in marriage and raised their own family and children.
