Program Description

Shraddhanand Mahilashram runs 'Aadhar Gruha' - a shelter home for young girls and women from 19 to 40 years of age. They provide shelter, food, healthcare, education and overall development.

Shraddhanand Mahilashram runs a shelter home for abandoned children. If after the children after 18 year of age are not yet adopted, they move to the Aadhar Gruha.

Girls between the age group of 19 till about 40 stay in Aadhar Gruha, the home for women of Shraddhanand Mahilashram in Matunga.

The home takes care of their health, basic needs and education of these girls. Regular health check ups are done for the women. The girls attend college or vocational courses based on their interests. They also learn handicrafts and other activities such as sewing. The products that they create are sold at exhibitions, and a part of the earnings is given to them as pocket money.

The social workers, nurse, attendants, and house mothers help and counsel them as required. They are also helped with marriage, if they wish, through the Ashram on receiving suitable proposals.

This program covers the cost of food and provision expenses of the girls and women who stay in the Aadhar Gruha homes.

When you donate to this program, you help abandoned and destitute girls get quality food and nutrition as they work towards their future.
