Dignified living in shelter homes – Bunkbeds for children

What is the Social Issue we are solving?

In most shelter homes, children do not have a private space to call their own. This leads to two issues.

  1. The orphanage building is invariable too small to accommodate the large number of children and yet they also have many new children joining in every now and then. Thus the space utilization in the shelter homes is not optimized.
  2. In shelter homes with girl children, it becomes all the more imperative to provide the girl children with their own private, secured space to sleep especially after they reach the age of puberty. But the shelter homes are unable to provide this.
