  1. 1. www.aplaghar.org  We support orphans by providing them shelter, food, education, medicines and other needs which are available to normal children. We also take care of unsupported senior citizens.  Apala Ghar was started in 2001 under its parent organization Late Vaibhav Phalnikar Memorial Foundation.  We presently have a child home at Warje Malwadi (Pune) and another child home and a senior citizens home at Donje near Sinhgadh (Pune) GET STARTED & MAKE AN IMPACT WWW.NIPUNE.ORG

We not only provide shelter and other basic amenities to children but also take efforts to develop their personalities. We try to inculcate in them good habits and make efforts towards ensuring that they become self sufficient once they leave the ashram GET STARTED & MAKE AN IMPACT WWW.NIPUNE.ORG

  4. 4. www.aplaghar.org WHAT DO WE NEED FROM THE PROFESSIONAL COMMUNITY  Mentor a Child - Volunteers can help children in their studies or help enhance their computer skill sets which they learn at the training center.  We need professional support on various productivity improvements at our centers at Warje and Donje eg: automating our donor management system.  We have recently launched a ‘Grameen Udyog Prashikshan Kendra’ at Donje for empowering class 10th dropouts students who otherwise, under depression, resort to such extreme means as suicide. We aim to provide short duration courses (offset printing, screen printing, book binding, etc) to these children at free of cost, we seek help from the professional network / organizations to arrange for trained teachers to teach these courses.
