NGO: BABY SARAH'S HOME, Pondicherry
- We are glad to introduce ourselves as BABY SARAHS HOME for mentally challengeable, physically challengeable and orphan children located at Pondicherry, South India. It is a non-profit, secular, non-Governmental Social work organization working for the cause of disadvantaged/marginalized/impoverished segments of the society. We especially work with mentally challengeable, physically challengeable, orphan and poor children to their betterment for the past 12 years in and around Pondicherry, the union territory.
It was founded in 1992 by an educated, committed individual namely Mr. A.P. Joseph who has served at various social service centers in different fields. And he felt the inner urge to start a new experiment to serve humanity with the intention of Service to Mankind is Service to God. Therefore, he started childrens home to care for the sick, mentally challengeable, physically handicapped, and orphan of its service to the needy. Mr. A. P. Joseph was honored with numerous titles and awards for his valuable service. Our founder is now not with us. He was physically expired but spiritually he is with us in our every action, we are continuing his path. It is registered under the Societies Registration Act 1975.
We care for these affected and poor children by providing food, clothing, shelter, education and medical care as well. As our main intention is Service to Mankind is Service to God, we serve the mankind that is very much affected by its own society. As for moral ethics go no man is perfect, very human being is unique/different and that he/she has to be left out without his/her own dignity/love/care and whoever it may be he/she has got his/ her own right for love, care/dignity.
So, with this basic concept in mind we in our target areas that is full of discrimination we go finding these children to care for them because although, they are neglected, refused, ignored and rejected by their own family members and the community, they still have the rights for everything that is right for food, clothing and shelter, right for education, expression, play, rights for learning new things, rights for participation, rights for decision making, rights to speak, write and all other rights as normal child gets. Thus, we are continuously caring, educating, training and organizing our target population towards achieving its aim of Reaching the unreachable ones.
