Since December, 2013 Pilgrims of Charity have the grace to serve hundreds of children without roots and without roof; most are without parents or more exactly the relation parents children was broken in most of the cases, further to emotional breaks. These wounded but smiling children and hopeful found themselves from the youngest age thrown on the pavement or on railway platform.
Most of them totally left to themself fell in the mirage of the drug (glue), the sex (prostitution) and alcohol. However, in a more general way, a factor often directs their life, which is for them a treasure: their freedom!
Where from a profound sensibility and an instability which somewhere paralyze their life by preventing them from living normally as the other children of their age (school, long-lasting professional integration, etc.).
The Pilgrims of Charity, who share their life with the life of these children, answer this instability by the rehabilitation which will allow the child to find little by little confidence in himself and in the life and to find his place in the society.
1) By helping the child to find his family and to live a path of forgiveness and reconciliation.

2) By sponsoring the child.
For the Pilgrims of Charity the best way of fighting against the instability is the sponsoring. We propose to the child a godfather / godmother, with whom he is united by a contract:
This strategy of sponsoring involve a whole organization in particular the implementation of two co-workers (SH Coop) who have for mission of:

Pilgrims of Charity work in very narrow links with three organizations:
Pilgrims of Charity also cooperate, when it is possible, with the police (GRP / RPF) to release those who are in prison by finding them a place where they can envisage a new life.
