Sweet Home is located at Main Road Najafgarh, Tura Mandi. The foundation for Sweet Home was laid in 1997 with four children by Mr. Avinash Jain. Today there are around 40 children staying here.
Children approach us through police or social workers. Their medical check ups are being done and reports are prepared. Then they undergo an IQ test on the basis of which they are given admission in different classes.
Life at Sweet Home
Semi orphans are allowed to visit their relatives, for 7-15 days and for 1-2 days during festival time. During this period they are under the supervision of their guardian but once they are back we don’t allow any sort of their interference.
Each and every child in the ashram goes to either Hindi or English medium school. We motivate our children by doing regular counseling. To keep them update with the present scenario we focus on their English speaking. According to their abilities they are provided with various types of vocational trainings, for instance, girls are trained for cooking, stitching, cleaning, house keeping etc. students who are interested in studying are not at all burdened with any sort of training. Moreover we try our level best to motivate those who are not interested in going to school and make up their mind to study. Till 18, if they don’t take any interest in their studies, then we arrange for more training and employments for them. Apart from school education we do make arrangements for private tuition at ashram only as well as in coaching centres as per the need of the students.
