About The Program

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 food, milk, and clothing for one child at the center.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. At Mahima, they believe that this is just the beginning. In a family atmosphere, these boys are nurtured and raised to believe that dreams that were once far away are now within their grasp! Starting with 2 children, the home currently houses 14 children. When you donate to this program, you give vulnerable children a safe home and good nutrition that they need to be healthy. This amount sponsors the fortnightly food expenses a child.
