Upcoming Projects

Hospital Expansion

Snehalaya is running a community care and support centre for hundreds of HIV positive patients. The current 20 bedded hospital in our community care center is overflowing. We are unable to extend admissions beyond 5 days for most inmates.  Moreover, it is not well constructed and ventilated and does not have separate toilets. Hence, we are looking to build a 100  bedded hospital which will include separate isolation wards where infectious patients also can be cared for.


Vocational Training Center

Typically, most shelter homes and NGOs release their inmates when they attain 16-18 years of age. The destitute children most of the times do not find employment easily, and run a great risk of getting involvled with anti social elements. Snehalaya is presently offering tailoring courses for victim women, in our own premises in rehabilitation centre. We plan to create a vocational training institute to offer courses such  as screen printing, greeting card making, beauty care, etc


Library For Bal Bhavans 

Bal bhavan, a very successful project, primarily focused on providing education and improving health conditions of the children living in the slums, in and around Ahmednagar. We have a proposal to start library facilities in all the five Bal bhavans in the city.  We are also looking to equip these libraries with 12 computer machines and also provide internet connection to help the children advance their knowledge.
