    lack of supplies
  • Land disputes, struggle for leadership, and
    religious conflicts

5
Little Drops Life Helpline in Manipur
  • Why?
  • Due to the various circumstances of Chandel, and
    Manipur as a whole, there are a number of poor
    children
  • They belong largely to poor and marginalized
    families, conflict victims, drug addicts, and
    HIV/AIDS infected families
  • In order to enable these children to live better
    lives, they need a stable home and educational
    support
  • Little Drops decided to start Basileia Childrens
    Home to provide the support needed to orphans and
    poor children who could otherwise fall victim to
    their circumstances

6
Little Drops Life Helpline in Manipur
  • How?
  • Basileia Childrens Home
  • Currently provides a home and supports education
    for 35 children
  • Recently purchased 15 acres to build a new home
  • Little Drops Health Clinic
  • Serves the public through medical consulting,
    providing medicines and blood sample collection
    for disease diagnostics

Basileia Childrens Home
8
Dormitory
Our dorms are simple wooden constructions and the
children sleep on the floor
  • Currently we have three dorms one for girls, one
    each for younger and older boys
  • In our new home we wish to construct two large
    dorms one to house 50 girls and 50 boys each
  • Our new dorms can be constructed to keep damp air
    and other weather conditions out We hope to have
    beds and some form of insulation to keep the
    dorms warm and the children safe and healthy

9
Study Area
Today, the children work on their class
activities on the floor outside their dorms
  • The children also use the dining hall to do their
    school work
  • We would also like to have an in-door area large
    enough for the children to focus on their school
    work and extra curricular activities

10
Dining Hall
The current dining hall where children eat their
food
  • We need a dining hall, large enough for all the
    children and preferably sheltered from the
    weather
  • We will also need a kitchen and store room for
    our new home

11
Water Supply
Currently, we pay for water which is filled in
300 litre tanks by water tankers
  • Our water supply, for bathing, drinking and
    cooking, is insufficient
  • The amount of water we get each month usually
    does not last
  • So when it rains, we collect rain water
  • Our new home has a patch of wet grass lands,
    abundant with water from a nearby stream, where a
    well could be easily constructed to provide a
    sufficient water supply

12
Toilet / Washroom
The current bathrooms are not very hygienic and
very inconvenient
  • In our new home we wish to provide clean,
    non-hazardous bathrooms for boys and girls,
    separately

13
Transportation
Currently the children walk to school
  • The Chandel district is hilly and rainy , making
    it difficult and unsafe for the children to
    commute to school by foot
  • We would like to have a vehicle, preferably a
    school van, so that the children can get to and
    from school safely

14
The Support We Require
  • Funds to develop the new home
  • Our current space (which is rented) is becoming
    cramped and unhealthy as more children come to
    the home
  • We recently purchased 15 acres to build a new
    home
  • We need help to develop the land
  • New Facilities
  • Two separate dorms one for 50 girls and one for
    50 boys
  • Clean , hygienic and non-hazardous bathrooms
  • Kitchen, Store room, Dining hall
  • Chapel
  • Fencing for the safety of the children

15
The Support We Requirecontinued
  • Water Supply
  • The construction of a well in the newly acquired
    land
  • A generator for a reliable source of Electricity
  • With a well and power generator it is possible to
    provide simple plumbing which will greatly
    enhance hygienic conditions with regards to
    drinking water, bathing, cooking, and cleaning
  • Transportation
  • There is no transportation for children or for
    emergency purposes
  • Today, vehicles are being borrowed from members
    of community in times of need
  • A van would be extremely useful for the same

Analysis of Manipur
19
Analysis of Manipur
  • Manipur is a state located in the Northeast
    region of India, bordering Myanmar (Burma)
  • Manipur lays in the midst of hills and valleys
    and due to its geographical position and natural
    boundaries access to Manipur is limited
  • A separatist insurgency in Manipur began in 1964
    and developed a violent momentum in 1978
  • There are currently 34 groups and organizations,
    including non-violent ones, that demand
    independence from India
  • Some consider Manipur the worst case scenario
    in the north-east as far as militancy is
    concerned (HRW) there are thousands of
    individual militants

20
Analysis of Manipurcontinued
  • The Chandel district is one of the tribal
    districts of Manipur which is situated in a hilly
    and rainy geographical region
  • There are more militant groups in the state than
    anywhere else in India, at least seven prominent
    groups operate in Manipur, and rivalries have
    begun amongst these groups which has lead to
    greater violence and lack of development
  • The insurgent groups are not united and often
    demands of one group will jeopardize the
    integrity of another groups demands, leading to
    conflict
  • Apart from all this, Manipur as a state is in an
    alarming situation with regard to HIV/AIDS
    problems

21
Analysis of Manipur continued
  • It is one of the most highly affected zones in
    the world
  • There is also an increase of drug addictions due
    to the nearby poppy fields which are destroying
    individuals lives and families

22
Analysis of Chandel, Manipur
23
Analysis of Chandel, Manipur continued
  • Chandel, a district in Manipur, is located 64km
    from the capital city of Imphal
  • Access to Chandel is difficult due to poor road
    conditions, frequent rainy weather, and road
    blockades
  • The Chandel district , where Little Drops
    Basileia Childrens Home is located, lacks
    electricity, there is a shortage of drinking
    water, and zero plumbing to maintain sanitary
    conditions

24
Analysis of Chandel, Manipur continued
  • There is no hospital or clinic in the area which
    can test blood on site (Though Little Drops Life
    Helpline Clinic recently opened and can collect
    blood to be sent to Imphal to be tested)
  • According to a National Security Council report,
    the Chandel District was declared a No Industry
    Category and amongst the most backward and
    poorest districts of the country
  • The Government of India once recognized the
    tribal's of the district as primitives
  • Since few industries have developed in Chandel,
    the main occupation is agriculture (shifting
    cultivation which is jokingly said to require
    farmers to work 13 months a year)

25
Analysis of Chandel, Manipur continued
  • People of the district largely depend on the
    forests and its products for their livelihood
  • In Chandel, as in the rest of Manipur, there is a
    general disturbance of underground groups which
    destabilizes and paralyzes the area
  • Absence of value based political education
    amongst the people, party politics and factional
    politics, have been misleading the people,
    resulting to inter and intra community conflict
  • According to members of the Chandel community,
    the value of living together, concern for one
    another, and traditional friendship is
    deteriorating

26
Analysis of Chandel, Manipur continued
  • Other attributes to the present situation stem
    from land disputes, struggle for leadership, and
    religious conflicts
  • People are being deprived of their rights rights
    to work, education, food and water, health and
    various privileges and opportunities like
    happiness and peace
