The Shelter is an NGO run by an Italian lady Sandra Bongiolatti, based in Gurgaon district, Darbaripur village, Haryana (about 50kms from New Delhi) to provide a long term, stable, home-like environment to abandoned children from impoverished backgrounds. They are given holistic support to grow up as happy well cared for individuals from stable families.
The Shelter wants to provide a true home to abandoned children. Scarred by the neglect and ill-feeling of the society towards them with no resources to go forward, abandoned children often cannot grow up properly and be accepted by society. The Shelter provides them with a home full of love and happiness with all resources to get proper education and lead healthy, happy and productive lives.
They need volunteers with real passion to help children.
At present The Shelter has 11 children (seven boys and four girls). All the children go to good schools nearby.They are looking to get a few women and other children too. In the future, they are hoping to be able to house a maximum of 40 children and a few women. They also plan on conducting workshops with the women so that they are able to learn and create handicrafts to support themselves in future.
