‘Ente Koodu’ is an innovative programme launched by Social Justice Department which provides a night shelter for the wandering and pavement dwellers where facilities for stay, food, toiletries and clothing are provided. Unlike the present old age homes or care homes, there will not be cumbersome procedural formalities for admission or release. There will not be any entry or exit barriers for the destitute women and children below 12 years in need of night shelter. As the shelter home ensures security at night without infringing upon their freedom, they can utilize this facility.
By actively involving NGOs and students organizations the destitute can gradually be brought to the mainstream. By ensuring minimal involvement of the Police department and by providing CCTV surveillance, anti-social elements can be kept at bay. This project is being implemented in Kozhikode district and Thiruvanathapuram district.
