We are much obliged of your support in bringing up our "Snehalaya- the home with love" with 66 disabled and orphan or abandoned children and homeless women there. Its Foundation day was celebrated on 23rd Aug. preceded by annual sports and cultural competitions held on 22nd Aug. for children with disabilities held in presence of Prof. Bhartendu Shukla as Chief Guest, Shri Arjaria Retd. Commissioner of Gwalior and Prof. P.S. Bisen as Guests of Honour and many honourable citizens of Gwalior. Unfortunately Mayor and Collector could not attend, gave their blessings and best wishes to our children on phone, as they were called for an emergency meeting in Bhopal. Nearly 300 children from various organizations participated. Though rains interrupted the cultural programme and it had to be held inside in our central hall, it did not deter the children from their enthusiasm and colourful presentations, which were enjoyed, liked and praised by all present.

So far out of 66 residents in Snehalaya, only 45 have been sponsored. Please consider sponsoring a child there, it is only $40PM and you can do so now by setting up regular payment on this site. We also request for you visiting Snehalaya and encourage our children at your convenience and never hesitate to contact me or write to me for any questions or information on snehalaya.gwalior@gmail.com
Thanks a lot, with regards,
