Back in 2007 when Niedhie was teaching the brightest undergraduate students of the country in her alma mater St. Stephen’s College, she also challenged herself with teaching young teenagers who had run away from their homes and were rehabilitated by a charity called Salaam Baalak Trust (SBT) based in Delhi, India. She quickly realised that not every child has been as fortunate as her receiving the family support needed to succeed in life. She made it a mission in her life to do whatever she can to help the children who find themselves on the streets disadvantaged. Towards this end, she established a UK charity called Friends of SBT along with another like-minded individual.
In its over ten years of running, Friends of SBT has raised awareness about issues faced by street children in India including talking in the House of Lords of the British Parliament and raised and transferred large sums of money to India supporting their rehabilitation.
Take an action now and help some of India’s most vulnerable children in one of the ways below.
