Feed an orphan or semi-orphan at our Mahima Home for 2 weeks, INR 1000


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

Swimming against the tide
Caleb was 4 years old when faced severe health conditions due to poverty and neglect. His living environment was not conducive to his emotional and physical well being, characterized by struggles. Hailing from the Mumbai slum, and having no escape Caleb could only dream of living in a family and the day he would become healthy again.
Mahima Home took Caleb into their care. As a top priority, he was taken for special medical checkups and nourished with the much needed tonics and medications. His weight and health status improved and he overcame malnutrition. Here is our indicative list of daily menu items: eggs, bread, milk, protein rich foods, whole wheat, rice, lentils, vegetables, beverages, biscuits, fruits.
Caleb is an energetic and skilled football player today who enjoys playing for his school team! His weight and health status are that of a normal child. He is a good student in his English medium school; above all, he is a secure child, not fearing, but facing his future with physical and mental strength and vitality.
