Asha Sadan – literally, House of Hope – houses children in the age group of 0-6 years and young girls from 14-20 years. The institute houses less fortunate children from different backgrounds – some are lost or abandoned, some come from homes with ailing or terminally ill parents and some have convict parents.
It’s always great to visit the children of Asha Sadan. Our favorite is spending time with the little toddlers who were playing dog and bone when we entered their room.
What always leaves us emotional is when we see the newborn babies (some as old as a few days) at Asha Sadan. We always find it difficult to move out of that room quickly.
Jaya ma’am (the amazingly selfless social worker in charge) had given us a list of requirements. Miti (our volunteer) had got a lot of baby food products and mosquito repellants specifically for the newborns. Some of our other volunteers had sent us diapers, pens, keychains, games, etc.
Asha Sadan does not allowing any photography for the safety of the children so you all have to pay them a visit to see the beautiful children.
