Not every orphan child at Snehankur gets adopted !

Snehankur takes life long responsibility of many children not fit for adoption due to their special needs. Mentally challenged, physically handicapped, blind, children suffering from cancer, HIV AIDS and other such ailments are admitted into the organisation and need special care. On an average, 2 critically ill children are admitted into our organisation each month. The treatment costs on an average is nearly a Lakh Rupees a month, required for the survival of these children. 
Snehalaya maintains over 300 children between 2 to 16 years of age. Many of them will never get adopted.

The physical space in our adoption center is now insufficient and we are looking to build a larger facility where all our children can be accommodated. This will enable us to provide quality care to our children with special needs. Contributions from people like you can, not only save lives but also help to improve the quality of life of our children. All donations to Snehalaya are exempt from income tax under section 80G. We provide receipts and maintain accounts for every rupee we receive and spend. So, please donate generously.


Snehankur staff are well trained to attend to the needs of our young infants and children. However, their bandwidth is consumed mostly in feeding and keeping the babies clean. You can volunteer your time and contribute to the overall development of our children. A few hours of playing, singing or just talking to our children goes a long way to our children. 

We also need support in our media and awareness campaigns against female foteicide, awareness regarding adoption and explaining the work we do, especially in rural areas. We provide boarding and lodging facilities for volunteers who are interested in participating with us in such campaigns. We are constantly on the lookout for the support from professionals in areas such as child care, nurses training, use of medical equipment and so on. Please reach out to us with your volunteering interest and we can work out the date/time to visit us.

Create Support Network 

Cities such as Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmednagar, and so on where our adoptive parents are largely based from can form  Support Network groups locally. This community will not only help adoptive parents share their insights with each other, but can also look at how they can support the Snehalaya-Snehankur family. It is people like you who have helped us raise funds and expand our organisation. We look forward to your continued support.
