Ashiana Children Home: We lovingly support under-privileged and vulnerable children in our Ashiana Children’s Home with tender, loving care. This home has been in existence since 1982. Initially it was lodged in rented accommodation. In 1993, the Government of Haryana provided a piece of land measuring 1000 square meters. A Fund Raising Drive was launched to construct premises of our own for the children. With the generosity of our donors, we have been able to complete the first and second phase of our project. . The State Government partly funds our project. The facilities provided to all children include boarding & lodging, education, recreation, medical care, clothing, salaries of staff and house maintenance.
Ananda Shiksha: Initially this project was undertaken for the children begging outside the temples but with time it has evolved into an after school programme for children to help the children with education and offer them an opportunity to spend their time constructively by channelizing their energies in the right direction. Various activities such as yoga, dance, drama, music, art craft etc. are undertaken for engaging the children for 3-4 hours daily. This programme has four branches – senior wing at GMPS-15 Panchkula, Junior wing at D.C. Model School Sector – 7 Panchkula and a free progress school for children from surrounding brick kilns and an evening after-school support for older children at village Kakkarmajra, NH 07. All the children are provided with nutritional refreshment daily at the end of the session
