Designation: Chairperson and Founder Trustee

September 1998 – Present 

Relief Foundation

Relief Foundation was seeded in September 1998 by a group of adoptive parents with a focus on child rights and juvenile justice. It became an eclectic association of well wishers to serve the cause of rescued children in order to provide rehabilitation to children who needed care and protection. In February 1999, Relief foundation established a transit shelter home and welcomed five children from various orphanages. Within a span of two years from 1999 to 2001 it was comfortably positioned to rehabilitate around 50 children who had previously been certified by the Juvenile Welfare Board to be sent to a FIT Intuition for further rehabilitation. The unit then merged with Ashram Home to synergise efforts and provide common services. The foundation studied the status of children in Government Children’s Homes and worked sedulously with the Government Officials to search lost families, escorted children and provided infrastructure facilities.

The foundation provided children with educational support, materials and enabled their success in exams so that they could stride into a more confident future. Simultaneously, a well equipped vocational training centre was set up with power operated sewing machines for older children and abandoned girls. In time, the juvenile justice operations halted and Relief Foundation moved into a new arena of prevention of delinquency and drop outs– offering quality educational services to children especially in high risk areas.
