HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO LEAVE A LEGACY THAT MATTERS...
The little girl you see in the banner is Angel, an orphaned child with intellectual disability (ID) and hydrocephalus – a dangerous condition in which fluid accumulates in the brain, enlarging the head and sometimes causing brain damage. Angel was abandoned in a city hospital in Chennai by her teenage, single mother when she was just 3 months old.
Angel is one of the lucky few who are rescued and taken off our dangerous streets each day by a network of child rescue organizations. But not all are as fortunate as she was to make it to a home like ours. Many little ones are quickly taken off the radar by unscrupulous trafficking gangs and are never heard of again!

Why Invest in this project?
There are very few homes for abandoned intellectually challenged girls today because looking after them is hugely challenging on several fronts, and not many want to assume this life-long responsibility.
But, we do! Our heart is in the right place – bolstered by a strong vision and mission to rescue and rehabilitate as many abandoned intellectually challenged children as we can.
However, we’ve reached full capacity and it pains us to turn new admissions away just for lack of infrastructure because we have both the will and the capacity to provide this humanitarian service.
That’s why we appeal to you to help fund this worthy cause!
We have a plot of land situated on the shore of a lake at Kolathur, Chennai. We are building a 13,168 sq.ft. “residential cum rehabilitation” facility with special education class rooms, physiotherapy rooms, a medical unit, a vocational training center, dormitories, restrooms, hydrotherapy units, kitchen, pantry and dining room. A garden will provide a refreshing recreation space for the children. Construction commenced on August 28, 2019.
