Intoduction

Since 1983 we have been helping children to become rehabilitated, to live with dignity as good citizens and ultimately to stand on their own feet. We also offer free medical facilities and vocational training. For our efforts in the field of child development we have received the National Award for Child Welfare for the year 2000

History
It was an inspiration, a vision and then a commitment. Shri J.D. Sharma, a senior I.A.S. Officer, while in his appointment as Vice Chancellor, Jammu University, in late seventies, gets an inspiration from a renowned social worker, Mrs. Mekhla Jha, wife of Shri L.K. Jha the Governor, Jammu & Kashmir. She had set up two destitute children homes at Jammu & Srinagar, to look after and give them much needed parental affection. This, coupled with the obsession of the invaluable words of Swami Vivekananda, "THEY ALONE LIVE WHO LIVE FOR OTHERS", made the vision clear in his mind to set up a home for destitute children of Haryana and adjoining areas to help them grow and live with dignity and ultimately stand on their own feet through education and Vocational Training.
