Building a Better Future for All: Our Story and Mission
Home / About Us

Our aim is also to empower every individual under our roof through quality education and skilling.

At Ghar, we aspire to create fulfilled lives for those in need through everything we do. Our work is centred in our seven-storeyed home, where our main facilities include childcare and an orphanage home for marginalised young girls, a paralysed women’s home, and a senior living space for the elderly. While fostering a sense of family through this richly diverse community, the aim is also to empower every individual under our roof through quality education and skilling, as well as the opportunity to become productive and employed members of society. 

We ensure that every member of Ghar is further taken care of by providing them with nutritional meals, medical help, recreational activities, and self-development workshops! With sufficient infrastructure and our team of trained staff and volunteers, we are able to make Ghar a safe and uplifting place for the vulnerable.

Our Journey

How It All Began…

Colonel Mickie Uberoi (Retd), the Founder Trustee, had dreamt of starting an orphanage at a very young age when he was still a cadet in the National Defence Academy, Khadakwasla. In 2007, he took premature retirement from the Army to give wings to his urge to help the underprivileged and to serve humanity. Over the years, he has educated children from poor families, has treated and rehabilitated a paralysed person, and has helped to uplift the poor in various ways. 

As the calling within him to give wings to his dream grew over the years, so also the conflict brewing within intensified. Where was the money for creating the infrastructure and the operational expenditure going to come from? After all, he was just a pensioner with only a modest source of income. The urge, however, prevailed, and he finally set forth to construct a seven-storey building with his life’s savings and borrowed funds to create Ghar.

An encounter with young paralysed women in a rehabilitation centre for paraplegics and getting to hear their stories germinated the idea of a home for paraplegics wherein paralysed women from the underprivileged sections of society would lead a life of dignity and get mainstreamed in society. The home for the elderly was conceptualised for both the elderly residents and the children to partake in each other’s company and the natural bonding and affection that would come about among them. Thus was born Ghar - an abode for orphan/marginalised girls, women with locomotive disabilities, and the elderly.

Ghar is about the opening of doors, about opportunities, about making a difference in the lives of people.

Change the world with us.
