Without you our Home of Love would cease to exist.


We value our staff and our clients dearly, many arrive as beneficaries and in time stay on as staff.  To all our team, whatever brought and keeps you here - you are our heritage and our foundation, you have been here generation on generation. 


Our mentors, collaborators and partners give us inspiration and guidance to assess our progress and grow and develop together side by side.


Our supporters and donors, what you provide in all your passionate forms, keeps us going.  You are our extended family members watching over us.  


There are so many more with us, too many to mention forming the branches and leaves of our rich family tree. Through the seasons and the years thank you for helping us grow from a sapling to the great banyan tree India needs.


Together we are a family and when we join hands and each play our part, we are strong and united.  We are Snehalaya - the Home of Love.
