An orphanage is a residential institution devoted to the care of orphans, Semi Orphans – Children whose biological parents are deceased or otherwise unable or unwilling to care for them. Biological parents, and sometimes biological grandparents, are legally responsible for supporting children, but in the absence of these or other relatives willing to care for the children, they become a ward of the state, and orphanages are one way of providing for their care, housing and education.
Abhilasha Foundation is supporting an orphanage home Swagat Ashram Charitable Trust for 22 children for their food, shelter, clothes, medical and nutrition for the orphan and semi-orphan children.
Although many people presume that most children who live in orphanages are orphans, this is often not the case with four out of five children in orphanages having at least one living parent and most having some extended family. “Orphans should be placed under the care of public guardians.Orphanage Support Programme Relief provides small group mentoring and addresses every child’s need for individual attention. We believe in a holistic approach and so, after physical needs are met through our other programs, we address the emotional, spiritual, and social issues that arise from living in an orphanage home.
