Almost denied the right to education, Rajesh now dreams of a brighter future
Rajesh lived in one of the many slums of Mumbai. His family was impoverished and disadvantaged.
As his family struggled to meet basic needs, education became a luxury they couldn't afford. Little Rajesh stayed illiterate and was at the threshold of becoming a child laborer.
It was then that one of Mahima's staff noticed Rajesh and took him under their care. He was enrolled in the shelter home.
Mahima Home has taken Rajesh into their care. The two house parents and the staff take care of him and nurture him like family.
The shelter home provides him with the right environment for him to develop holistically through a family environment, quality accommodation and above all, access to good English medium education. His basic needs for proper clothing, wholesome nutrition, health care, and emotional care are taken care of.
Rajesh today has a secure family environment and education that nourishes him and helps him hone his talents.
He is a bright child who enjoys learning. He is good at academics as well as sports. He is a confident boy who enjoys making new friends and loves to play outdoor games.
From a boy who was denied his fundamental right to education, he is now soaring towards his future.

About The Program
What the beneficiary gets
Sahaara's 'Mahima Children's Home' is a shelter for parentless children and children whose parents are unable to look after them. The Home was started in July 1999 with only a couple of children.
Donations to the program contribute to the educational supplies, medical cost, the salary of the shelter home staff and the operating costs of the center for one child.
The home was started with the aim to provide shelter to homeless and desolate children, including street children and neglected slum children.
These destitute children are easy and helpless victims of abuse and bad influences. They are desperately in need of a family, and that is what the Mahima Children's Home provides them.
The home is a haven for boys who are either orphans, have terminally ill parents, or are children of trafficked women who are unable to care for them.
Mahima provides these children with more than just their basic needs. Holistic rehabilitation is offered to fourteen children through a home environment with dedicated caregivers.
The children are provided with English medium education. The energetic and talented boys actively participate and shine in sports and other extra-curricular activities like playing the keyboard and singing.
They play lead roles in school dramas, bag awards, and prizes. Many of the boys from the shelter home have been elected school leaders and sports captains.
Starting with 2 children, the home currently houses 14 children.
When you donate to this program, you give vulnerable children a chance for education that can help them dream of a better future.
