From despair to dreams

Colonel Mickie Uberoi’s journey to establish an NGO for girls was not without its challenges and doubts. Recalling his early days as a cadet in the National Defence Academy, he mentions, “Even when I was a 16 or 17 year old cadet in the National Defence Academy, I would say one day I will start an orphanage.” The harsh realities that children face, such as being abandoned and found on the roadside, served as the catalyst for Colonel Mickie Uberoi’s mission.

To run this NGO for girls, the financial aspect was a significant concern for Colonel Mickie Uberoi. “I am a retired pensioner. Where the money would come from was always a big concern,” he admits. However, Colonel Mickie Uberoi was driven by a sense of duty and a burning desire to make a difference so he stepped forward with his dream. Ghar emerged as a hope-filled NGO for girls who were facing great adversities and he stood steadfast in its mission to provide love, care and opportunities to every child who walks through its doors.

Join the mission to empower dreams, one child at a time

This compassionate NGO for girls in need pleads with compassionate individuals to join their mission. When these children were abandoned, they were left to fend for themselves and vulnerable to the dangers of life on the streets. Their thoughts were consumed only with their day-to-day living and keeping themselves safe. But Colonel Mickie Uberoi shares that “now when people ask our girls about their future, they will all say they want to become army officers or IAS officers.” The dreams of these girls are not just aspirations; they are the seeds of transformation waiting to be nurtured.
