Bombay Teen Challenge


Bombay Teen Challenge (BTC) was established in 1990 in Mumbai (Bombay), India by K.K. Devaraj to reach the poorest of the poor that roamed the streets of Bombay. It has evolved into an organization that provides medical clinics within the red light district, day schools to the street children, and homes outside of Mumbai for those rescued which include women, children, boys, and men. They provide education to help break the cycle of poverty and abuse. Re-integration into society is a high priority and a goal of all the treatment and services provided. Their goal of complete healing in all areas (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) has been successful in enabling smooth transitions of those being treated back into society as productive individuals.
