History: Started in 1983 by some dedicated
voluntary individuals to ensure that orphan and destitute
children's interests are taken care of and they are rehabilitated
in their own country.and to put curbs on the trafficing
of children in the name of adoption which was a comman practice
then.today it's work has expandee to have many dimentions.
Child Care and Rehabilitation Centre: Our
flagship activity 'Child Care & Rehab. Centre' became
functional in 1985. Through this activity Vatsalya Trust
has reached out to 953 children. Children -mostly infants
& have placed 805 children in adoption over the years.
Balikashram: It was in June 1999 that Vatsalya's
three storeyed building came-up in Navi Mumbai at Sanpada.
Balikashram project was initiated here. Our Balikashram
is a home to 56 girls in the age group of 4 to 18 years.
Some of them are destitutes & others come from socially
backward & economically weaker sections of the society.
Vanaprasthashram (Elder's home): The rapidly
changing society has brought forward a new situation, which
is disheartening i.e. the problem of lonely elders. Keeping
true to the meaning of it's name, Vatsalya answered this
call of hour by starting a home to offer care & love,
born out of gratitude to these senior citizens at Sanpada.
Khushi: Here, a team of experts in this
field comprising of special educator, psychiatrist, pediatrician,
clinical psychologist & counsellor help the children
& parents to deal with various problems & disorders.
Services offered by this center.....
1. Psychological testing
3. Psychiatric intervention.
DoTReC: After acquiring substantial experience
in providing direct services to vulnerable sections of the
society; we have now taken a leap into understanding &
researching children's issues in a wider perspective by
setting up DotRec - Documentation, Training & Research
Centre on child development & children in crisis.
Urban Women empowerment programme: We believe
that working with women to help them to be self sufficient
helps to better her children's future. This is the basic
understanding with which we started this programme under
which we conduct regular short term income generation &
entrepreneurship development programmes for young girls
& women from economically & sociologically backward
sections of society.
Educational Assistance: "Vatsalya"
Trust has today undertaken the financial responsibility
of 20 students in and around Mulund. It is to be mentioned
that all these students come from economically weaker section
of the Society.
If these students show good progress in their studies, this
scheme can be extended to some more numbers in future.
Study Room: Those female students who are
today appearing for S.S.C. & higher studies are allowed
to use the study room. This is mostly because of the fact
that there is no proper accommodation in their residential
rooms, and they are thus deprived of silent atmosphere necessary
