Condition of Mujawar family is very bad, Mustafa’s father is handicap, his mother works as a maid servant and earns Rs 3000/- per month. With less amount the family has seven mouth to feed, education expenses this is not at all sufficient for the family Mustafa is cleaver in his studies considering the family condition we have enrolled Mustafa into Aadhar Kendra sponsorship programme so that with our support he could complete his education.

Tadiwala Road, where the family stays, has a population of about 50,000. It is a relatively well-structured slum, however, it faces the same problems and has to deal with issues that are found in the lesser-structured slums in Pune and the country. Alcoholism, AIDS, poor sanitation and hygiene being some of the major issues. Now due to this family's association with Deep Griha, education on these issues and how to combat them is made available and Deep Griha's work at Tadiwala road since 1978 has seen development, maybe fractional in context of the bigger picture, but it has made a difference to thousands of lives.

The Aadhar Kendra (meaning support center in Marathi) programme was designed to see to the education of the child, it is our responsibility to see that his or her academic life is not overshadowed by the concerns and circumstances of home. The AK programme also reassures the family that we are committed to see the child educated. Most often the financial burden of school, the costs it involves make the family stop educating their child/children. Where the next meal comes from takes precedence over buying schoolbooks or pens etc. This is understandable, that is why we provide for all the child's educational needs, thus taking the pressure of the family. The child will also receive free nutrition at our nutrition centre and also free medical care and regular medical check ups. The family will also be assisted during any time of crisis.

We strive towards the holistic development of the children and we will do our best to make sure that they have every available opportunity before them. We hope that you will work with us, as we try to make a difference in their future.
