Conversations Change Lives

 

Sachin hated coming out of his room and was afraid of meeting other people. Social workers from Chhahari started building a relationship with him and now we have been working with him for over 5years.

Whenever Social Workers from Chhahari went to meet him they started building trust and connection. Then slowly they started taking him to a nearby restaurant, parks and places he enjoyed visiting. During a walk to the restaurant, he began opening up and sharing his frustrations. They slowly learned that he sometimes likes to smoke a cigarette and hence they invited him for a walk allowing him to smoke. After a long-continued relationship, Sachin gradually started attending the Welcome Centre Session at Chhahari. Now, he is one of the “regular clients” to attend the session.

We were able to bring him out of isolation and now he has managed to make three friends from the welcome centre session. All three love to go out together and smoke cigarettes and play ludo game, they are the only friends he has and enjoys their company. The friendship that Sachin has built with one another has helped him to have a sense of companionship and belongingness.

The social workers from Chhahari are able to gain the trust of clients and their families because we invest long hours of time and energy building connections. Some of the clients and their families have been interacting with the same social worker for almost 7 years.

For many clients and their family members, the support from Chhahari social workers may not represent the ultimate solution to all their problems, but they nevertheless are people who they can turn to talk about their problems and be comfortable with.
