  • Description


    It is a loving shelter home- and school which provides a healthy living space for girls whose parents are struggling with extreme poverty. Our home is a heaven for poor, underprivileged girls, whose parents are unable to educate them, because of being from economically weaker sections in the society. These children run a very high risk of being sexually abused and contracting dreadful diseases (Leprosy) if they continue to stay in their slums. These young children at this age, who should be busy with their studies, unfortunately get busy begging with their parents. Slowly they lose the interest to fight for their right to come back to the normal society like any normal child.

    At our place, these girls are being imparted with loving care, some vocational skills besides their normal school curriculum for their all-round development, so that they can be self-sufficient and live their lives with dignity, which every human is entitled to. We build and nurture a character in the child, that is lacking, so that he/she can be an asset to the society as a grown up.

    Our girls home, the girls live away from their biological families, in child friendly environment with the consent of their parents. We have a specially acquired house, comprising of two floors and terrace, exclusively for these girls in Noida, where they feel safe. They are served whole-some vegetarian meals, enjoy games and entertainment, attend nearby school regularly and learn skills to become self-reliant and confident to lead a dignified life.

    it is a home that is simple, comfortable, clean, purposeful and full of love – true love – unconditional love. Come and join us in the mission! :)
