Sponsor the fortnightly living expenses of an orphan or semi-orphan at our Mahima Home, INR 2000


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.

The Basics

Easy, helpless victims of abuse and bad influences, these destitute children were desperately in need of a family. The Home was started with the aim of providing shelter to these homeless and desolate children, including street children and neglected slum children.

How It Works

• The home is a haven for quite a few boys, all of whom are either orphans or with terminally ill parents or children of trafficked women unable to care for them.
• Mahima provides these children with more than just their basic needs.
• Holistic rehabilitation is provided to fourteen children through a home environment with dedicated care-givers.
• At Mahima, they believe that this is just the beginning.
• In a family atmosphere, these boys are nurtured and raised to believe in a dream that was once far away, but now within their grasp! And each child has a bigger dream. Statistics

• 2 – Number of children who were there when the Home was started
• 14 – Number of children living in the Home at present

Love changes lives
Yabesh was destitute due to tragedies in his family and his life was marked with several struggles. His latent skills, dreams and his cheerful nature lay buried under the debris of his past. With the lack of proper nurture and family love, Yabesh awaited the day when his childhood would become his again.
Mahima Home has taken Yabesh into their care. The 2 house parents and the maid of Mahima Home constitute the right environment for him to develop holistically. Today Yabesh has excellent accommodation, access to English medium education, good clothing, wholesome nutrition, health care and emotional care.
Yabesh is a very cheerful and outgoing boy today. He thoroughly enjoys befriending new people. He is an all rounder: good student, excellent keyboardist and a skilled athlete. He has a sharp memory and often stuns people with his accurate memory of the entire lyrics of lengthy songs!
