donation details

Parentless children and children whose parents are unable to look after them find a place at Sahaara s Mahima Children s Home. Holistic rehabilitation is provided to fourteen children through a home environment with dedicated care-givers. The Home was started when Sahaara saw the need to shelter homeless and desolate street children and neglected slum children. Easy, helpless targets to abuse and bad influences, these destitute children were desperately in need of a family. Started in July 1999 with just two boys, the home today is a haven for 14 boys, all either orphans or with terminally ill parents or children of trafficked women unable to care for them. Mahima provides these children with more than just their basic needs. Educated at an English- medium school, the energetic and talented boys actively participate and shine in sports and other extra-curricular activities; lead roles in school dramas, bagging awards and prizes; have been elected school leaders, sports captains; play the keyboard and sing in school. This donation will be used to provide them with this quality education.
