The challenges

The NGO FXB India Suraksha welcomes street children living in Jaipur station and works with local communities to create development programs best suited to their needs.In fact, the city of Jaipur has a very dense rail network which makes it a privileged destination for poor children attracted by the hope of a better life. Once on the street, these children find themselves in a situation of extreme vulnerability.

Having fled their homes because of poverty, abuse or mistreatment, they no longer have any alternative and their situation deteriorates. In the worst case, these children will be raped, mutilated or exploited.

They very often encounter problems of drug addiction and alcoholism and are at high risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases. Most of these "station children" beg and steal for food, surviving in general indifference.

FXB India's day center is located near the Jaipur railway station and welcomes around 200 children per year, aged between 5 and 18 years old. They come there to eat, rest, play and relax in a safe environment.

The organization also helps the poorest communities to break the cycle of poverty through various projects saving many lives.

In August 2022, three of our field reporters will visit our partner NGO working with street children and carrying out poverty reduction projects in India.

They will help FXB India Suraksha raise awareness, creating content and videos for social media, including our own social network dedicated to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

The Indian NGO does not have the funds to cover this solidarity trip, and neither do we since we are entirely self-financed.

We do need your support. To cover the cost of this humanitarian mission, we are organizing a crowdfunding campaign, and hopefully we will also find corporate sponsors.

Action and Impact

Our field reporters will visit several of these projects. They will also volunteer with children and train local staff on how to communicate about their actions and thus raise more funds. Our goal is to restore trust in what NGOs do, and show the world that we can all play a part in ending poverty and here in giving street children a better future.

The team will also spend time volunteering with children, local staff and the community. Pablo, for example, will spend an entire month filming the association and its beneficiaries. This one will most likely have great success doing his magic tricks to children!

How many times do you have the opportunity to send a magician to bring some happiness to the "station children" of Jaipur?

In addition to photos and content written in several languages, our field reporters will create different types of videos for use on social networks. Some of these videos will be made on the world of the TV series “Brief” in order to raise awareness among young people. Our communication will have a large audience that we have created over the years.The team will also try to bring computers and mobile phones to beneficiaries and train local staff.

We want to show you the work done by local NGOs, their impact, their necessity, to restore confidence in humanitarian aid.

The needs are immense and our action is a long-term one. We hope to raise a minimum of5,000 euros, and ideally 10,000 eurosto be able to devote as much time as possible during and after the mission to supporting the local NGO.

Join us, we take you to the field!


We hope that this trip will be the first of a long series of solidarity trips!

Thank you for supporting our movement, so that international solidarity becomes the norm!
