Prerana’s Night Care Center (NCC) is a space created to ensure the safety and development of children living in the red-light areas. This program was initiated as a response to the needs of mothers in the sex trade to keep their children safe during the night. The NCC provides services such as – protected shelter, wholesome nutrition, education support, safe play options, safe sanitation options, and opportunities for skill development, awareness sessions, and an overall platform for holistic personality development and growth. The NCCs have a nutrition and health component which adopts a holistic and comprehensive approach with regard to service delivery. Carefully planned nutritious meals are served to children four times a day (six times during Prerana’s Day to Day Summer Camp). The health and medical services have a systematic process that includes a complete general health check-up, periodic follow-ups, and end-to-end support for the management of specific medical conditions.
Prerana has four NCCs which are located in/near the red-light areas of Kamathipura (two NCCs), Falkland Road, and Vashi-Turbhe Stores.
