Janeshwar Mishra Park Community
Making the best use of a community park, we have begun engaging with child hawkers operating out of the space and children living in settlements around the park, who are otherwise seen loitering around aimlessly in that area. The families of the 60 odd children we are engaging with, have migrated from different parts of Uttar Pradesh and nearby states to explore better livelihood opportunities in the city.
Our Ultimate Frisbee team practices in the park and many of the team members belong to communities living nearby.
This is an illegal settlement under the Husadiya flyover in the Vineet Khand area of Gomti Nagar. Most of the residents hail from distant villages of Sitapur, Balia and other districts of Uttar Pradesh and work here as daily labourers or Rickshaw pullers. We engage with more than 70 children here through our play based Life Skills programme as well as other pilot programmes.
