A child-friendly society that offers equal opportunities to all children and in which they can grow up safely and become agents of social harmony.
Don Bosco Ashalayam was created to protect street and destitute children and to empower them to become strong, independent and educated adults. Above all, Ashalayam's objective is to give hope to the hopeless; it's name "Ashalayam", which means "Haven of Hope" in Sanskrit.
Don Bosco, our inspiration
- Family reunification: the child can be reintegrated into his family, provided that his or her family offers a secure, healthy and befitting environment
- Individual settlement
- Buying Property: Ashalayam helps the neediest children (especially orphans) to buy their own land and house.
