We manage two Homes - one at Old Airport Road and the other at Whitefield. 

The Airport Road Home is situated on one acre of land donated by Dr. & Mrs. Z.R. Kothavala. consists of a residential home for 50  physically handicapped women and girls in the age group 4 to 25 years.

 The Rehabilitation Centre started in 1985 which aims to train physically handicapped men and women from the surrounding area to become earning members of the family and thus take a normal place in Society.

As part of occupational therapy, the residents are taught stitching, embroidery, assembly of parts, and repackaging of bulk toilet products, etc.  Outlets for the these  products  are provided in front of the Home.

The Whitefield Home caters to elderly ladies from the weaker section of the society.  They  live  a dignified life  in a cottage donated by James Macguckin, a Scottish planter, and 2 new blocks built with support from The Rotary Club, Indiranagar.  Additional facilities for housing is under construction and with this, the residential capacity for elderly persons will go up from 17 to 25. 

A new building is under the final stages of construction.  This will provide facilities for crafts and vocational training for senior citizens and physically challenged persons. Plans are also in the pipeline to provide day care facilities for the elderly persons.

As part of the outreach programme to provide assistance to persons with disabilities who are not residents in the Home, a pilot project in association with Leonard Cheshire Disability-UK and M/s Accenture-UK has been intiated. The project has successfully trained  over 250 disabled men and women and placed them in various companies in the IT, BPO, Hospitality and Retail sectors.
