Sneha Sagar Society is a trust actively involved in uplifting the marginalized, socially depressed and those living under sub-human conditions in the slums and streets of Mumbai. For the past 10 years they have been reaching out to orphans and destitute children by providing them education and basic needs. Sneha Sagar also has homes for senior citizens.
Sister Martha Mandal is the head of Sneha Sagar Society. Sr. Martha first started her activities by imparting free education to children residing in the slums. Gradually she started a Balwadi (education classes for slum children) and a coaching class to empower the women to be economically independent.
The various objectives of the Society are:
Rehabilitate Street and Slum Children
Provide Shelter for Needy
Immediate Help in Emergency
Create Family Atmosphere for Children
The Society has 67 children, both boys and girls, and is providing for their education by admitting them in various schools, both Marathi and English medium. The children live in their orphanages located at Malwani and Vasai in Maharashtra. Most of them are abandoned and some have lost their parents to HIV and TB. Some have single parents. The children belong to various castes and communities.
Sneha Sagar also has homes for senior citizens situated in Mira Road & Naigaon. They strive to create a secure environment for the 30 elderly residents as most of them are abandoned by their children or are left alone to fend for themselves without finances. Sneha Sagar provides for their basic needs and makes them feel accepted and loved.
