NGO Profile :
Amcha Ghar, established in 1996, is a non-profit organisation that provides a residential home for orphaned, semi-orphaned, neglected and abandoned girls on the streets of Mumbai, children of commercial sex workers, and children abused by their relatives. It focuses on early intervention, rescuing and rehabilitating young girls from the streets, and providing counselling and economic guidance to the girls parents or relatives, with the ultimate aim of stabilizing the family environment and improving economic status so that these girls can be re-united with their families.

Amcha Ghar Home encompasses not only a residential home in Uttan, but also an extension home for older residents who are working and pursuing higher studies in Bhayander. It presently has 25 beneficiaries at the home. Amcha Ghar actively works with a broad range of NGOs and institutions on a local, national, and International level. It receives referrals of residents from CWC (Child Welfare Committee). In addition, it works through a variety of media channels and national/international forums to raise awareness of the problems faced by vulnerable girl children.

The Amcha Ghar School, which is a government recognised school, provides English Medium formal education to the needy girls.  It strives to produce self-sufficient, empowered young women who can succeed in today’s fast-paced and competitive world. Currently, around 800 students attend classes from nursery to Standard X, mostly children of the fisher folks residing in the area. Extra-curricular activities are also conducted like cooking, sewing, teacher training and computer training programmes.

At present, Amcha Ghar has successfully completed 19 years and has also been ISO accredited.
