Rescuing and rehabilitating young girls from the streets
  • Crisis: In 1996, while investigating a case of sexual abuse, the founder Ms. Dias was disheartened about the lack of safety of orphan and semi-orphan girls at night. Realizing that no homes admitted semi-orphan girls even though they were found to be living in vulnerable situations, she decided that there must be better protection facilities for such girls and hence, Amcha Ghar was founded.
  • Programs: 1) Amcha Ghar Balgruh is a shelter for rehabilitating young orphan/semi-orphan girls of 6 to 18 years of age rescued from the streets. It provides residential, educational, medical, recreational and self-defense facilities for all girls. 2) Amcha Ghar English High School & Junior College and 8 Pre-Primary Schools in remote villages near Mumbai provide education to underprivileged children at a subsidized fee. 3) Healing Angels offers monetary support for medical treatment of pediatric patients belonging to poor families. 4) Caring Angels is a home for senior citizens who lovingly bond with the children from Balgruh.
  • Outcome in 2019: Nearly 110 girls have been rehabilitated to mainstream society because of Balgruh and over 1,000+ students are being supported through their educational institutions. 18 pediatric patients have been provided with monetary support of over ₹700,000/-.
