Shelter Home cum School
We are running a Shelter Home-cum-school for destitute girls and daughters of lepers/beggars since 2009 called “Vatsalayam Gurukul” situated at Village Hajipur in Sector 104 of Noida (U.P) where we are housing and educating 40 (forty) poor girls between the age groups of 3 years to 17 years, whose parents are predominantly lepers and/or beggars so that such vulnerable children can be guarded against abuse if left to live in slums and also get a fair chance to come up in life. These girls are provided free boarding, lodging, education and we also provide them vocation skills and courses in computers, beauty care, stitching/embroidery, candle making etc.
Started Working for the welfare of Leprosy patients living in several leper slums of Delhi.
Formation / Registration of Charitable Trust ‘Maitreey Preksha Seva Mission’.
Adopted 3 Leprosy slums situated in RK Puram, Tilak Nagar and Srinivas Puri having an average of more than 500 inhabitants per colony/ slum.
Started a shelter home for daughters of poor Leprosy Parents in a rented home in Aya Nagar (near Gurugram), New Delhi.
We started with 5 Girls in-house of ages between 7 to 11 Years.
The strength doubled to 10 girls in our Vatsalyam Shelter.
Five more girls joined our shelter at Aya Nagar, New Delhi making the total strength to 15 daughters.
We purchased a piece of land of 500 Square meters in Greater Noida with a vision to build a permanent home for such destitute girls.
We moved to a larger rented facility in sector 104, Noida (Uttar Pradesh).
And we increased the strength to 30 daughters in the age group of 3yrs to 17 yrs who started living and being imparted with formal and vocational education in the new complex.
Started Middle School called ‘Vatsalyam Gurukul’ in the same facility. Today we are providing free boarding and lodging to 45 destitute girls.
Apart from formal education, they are also being imparted with some vocational training like stitching/ embroidery, candle making, dance, music, drama, computers, etc.
