Saraswathi and her husband have three children- 8, 5.5,and 4 years old. Saraswathi is a counselor. The couple knew that they wanted to set up the organization, but thought that they would wait until their youngest child started going to school.
A couple of years ago, however, the timing felt right- and thus Diya Ghar came into existence.
About Diya Ghar:
Diya Ghar is a safe haven for children of migrant workers in Bangalore. The school has 30 students who come in every morning at 8.30 a.m. They are picked up from their homes and brought to school. A quick wash and change later they are ready for their breakfast, which is usually porridge and fruit.
Diya Ghar recently rented out a larger space and from March 2018 will be ready to welcome almost 60 students at their school. The school currently has four full-time teachers and two support staff.
Now, Saraswathi needs your help to keep Diya Ghar running as the safe haven it is. Contribute to support Diya Ghar!
