Abandoned at two by her own mother, Chandra becomes a successful paramedical professional

Chandra was two years old when her mother abandoned her. The Juvenile Welfare Board and the police tried to talk to her. She said that she wanted to give up the child because she couldn't take care of her.

The police were then told by the Juvenile Welfare Board to find a shelter home for the child. They admitted Chandra to the Bal Gruha run by the Shraddhanand Mahilashram.

Chandra grew up in the Bal Gruha with other children like herself. She was given the love and care that she deserved. When she turned 3, she began to go to the in-house Balwadi school.

She grew up as an Ashramkanya, as the girls who live in the shelter home are lovingly called. Once she was six years old, she enrolled in a neighborhood school. She grew up under the care of qualified social workers who nurtured her. They looked after her educational and emotional needs.

Chandra was an intelligent girl. She stood first in school in her Secondary School Certificate exam. She completed her Higher Secondary from Shreemati Nathibai Damodar Thackersey College.

She pursued her interest in the paramedical field. She got her Diploma in Medical Laboratory Technician course.

She started her career as an assistant lab technician in a pathological lab. Due to her hard work and dedication, in a few months she was promoted to a lab technician. At work, she met a boy who was also working as a lab technician proposed marriage to her.

Shraddhanand Mahilashram, through their marriage committee blessed their proposal.

Now, Chandra is happily married. She and her husband are now parents of a boy.

Many children like Chandra who would have grown up on the streets with no future are now happy and contributing members of the society.
