Dear friends of children in Snehalaya, 

We are much obliged for your support helping us to provide for children in Snehalaya and carry it further. On 23rd Aug. 2014, Snehalaya has completed 8 years and we enter into 9th year now. On 23rd Aug. we celebrated its foundation day with hoisting of National flags and singing the national anthem of 14 countries from where volunteers have worked in Snehalaya. Dr. Bhagirath Prasad, The Member of Parliament was the Chief Guest and Dr. Gita Narahari, First lady of Gwalior was Guest of Honour. We have laid the foundation stone for the Multi-Purpose Hall and hope it will be ready for use within this year for daily needs of our children here. Cultural programme with songs, dances continued for almost three years as part of the celebrations followed by prize distribution to the children having won in annual sports and cultural competitions held on 22nd Aug. attended by nearly 500 children from various institutions including our children.

Though much has been done but much more remains to be done. We depend upon you only and hope for your continued support and more helping us to provide for these children and take more children from Streets of India. Only 38 children have been sponsored so far and we request you to consider sponsoring a child with just $ 40PM or whatever you may prefer. Please never hesitate to call me or write to me at gwalior.hospital@care4free.net for any questions or further information.

We need and welcome volunteers from all walks of life to work with us on floor or from their own place. Please spread the word among every one known to you or whomsoever you come in contact with. Thanks a lot, with regards and best wishes,

BK

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
