Our Mission

To sustain and grow a home for children in need, in the vicinity of Ahmednagar, providing housing and first class education.

We believe in change

We help ensure disadvantaged children grow up with an education that puts them on par with other children, fighting to break the vicious cycle of poverty and helping them grow into able youth of tomorrow.

  • We provide education for every child.
  • We offer boarding: including food, clothing and shelter.
  • Every child is given the best available medical treatment.
  • Children are gifted with the ability to grow into self-supportive adults.

We believe every child on earth is blessed with a special gift or talent and we work to help them to discover their potential irrespective of their background.
