NGO Profile :
The Asha-Kiran Shelters Foundation focuses on holistic development of children belonging to economically backward classes. Serving as a home to vulnerable children in India, Asha Kiran aims at fulfilling basic needs of these children, and transforming their lives with love, care, and protection to enable them to progress and lead a dignified life.

Asha Kiran’s projects are as follows:

  • Yashodhara Shelter Home: Located in Bhambarde Village, Pune, the Home is a ‘Hope' for numerous orphaned and neglected children. The Home provides residential facility to 150 children and assists 200 children with formal education from Std. V to Std. X, vocational training and health care. It also counsels the children’s families so that these children are accommodated back in a caring and protective family.
  • Day Care Centre: The Centre caters to children of migrant labourers in the age group of 0 to 16 years for whom schooling is impossible due to their transitory lifestyle. These children are provided with elementary education, healthcare and daily meals. The Centre includes a crèche for children who are less than three years old, a balwadi for children in the age group of 3-6 years and elementary education for children aged six years and above. Started in 2011, this project has extended to 10 centres/creches and 500 children in FY13.

Asha Kiran has formed Self-Help Groups (SHGs) to augment socio-economic empowerment of women. Illiterate and unemployed women are imparted tailoring training to supplement them. Women are also involved in the community kitchen which serves meals to all the 500-600 children under the Opening Education Pathways for Migrant Children (OEPMC) project.

Asha Kiran is also associated with Campaign Against Child Labour (CACL), Action For the Rights Of Child (ARC) and Task Force, for addressing the issue of Child Labour and its abolition.
