As you know Snehalaya meaning the Home with Love in Hindi, a project of  Gwalior Childrens Charity of UK (formerly known as Gwalior Childrens Hospital Charity having started as a Childrens Hospital in 1998 but has grown into Snehalaya since with much more than only Childrens Hospital, hence the change of name too) in association with Gwalior Hospital and education Charitable Trust of India, is an Unique place for community living in India, generally considered as an Orphanage (we prefer to call it a care home rather) for disabled and destitute children, homeless women and the aged with a school (Special need as well main stream school) and health centre on site. It has all facilities for education and health care for children living there happily in a pollution free environment as a family as well that for Naturo-therapy, Yoga, Meditation, Physiotherapy, multi-sensory room, Hydrotherapy spread out in area of 25 Acres of land with its own Gardens, Orchards, farms, play and Sports fields and much more. There is a cow shed (Gaushala) too with a herd of 16 animals as well a bird house. There are 64 children there at present and we aim to accommodate 200 children when completed.  Our main stream school started in July 2011 with 77 children, mostly girls from surrounding villages. The girls are provided every thing for free as well an incentive of Rs.10 per day for attending the school. We are hoping that the number of children will increase to nearly 200 by July this year.

We work for intigrated development in surrounding villages and slums there including hygiene, sanitation, vaccination, safe drinking water, nutrition, maternal & child care, health education, awareness and treatment on their door steps as well advise for income generation. For non availability of electricity in villages, we distribute solar lights to school going children in villages to facilitate their education which also benefit their families by helping to decrease pollution, accidents and hazards due to kerosine use otherwise.

"Another child abandoned at our gate, a new member of our family, Nandita" 
Just a few days ago, an eight year old girl with multiple disabilities was found standing alone outside the doors of Snehalaya. We are happy to announce that we have taken her in as a new member of our family and named her Nandita. We now have 63 children, with the dream of helping many more. Our aim remains to make every child independent giving them a life with love, happiness and dignity.
                                             These children remain some of the most vulnerable in the world, with nobody to care for them, no social services, NHS, medicaid or money for food and shelter, leave aside health and education and even parents mercilessly decide to abandon them. As part of our 'Sponsor a Child' programme, for £20 or equivalent in your currency, a month you can provide home, food, clothing, toys, health care and education for children like Nandita giving them a new life with opportunity to become independent.
Please consider helping Nandita through fundraising or donating whatever you are able to. Your continued help and support is much appreciated. Please get in touch with me for any questions or further information any time, just write to Gwalior.Hospital@care4free.net

Our presentation started with a minute silence remembering Rev. John Bradley, our Patron, my friend and longest serving as well most senior volunteer who left us on 12th Aug. last year. We missed him very much on this occasion as he always stood with us on this day since beginning. Mrs. Margaret Roberts, John's sister joined us for receiving our rememberances and respects. Dr. Narinder Kapur, Mr. Alan Whybrew, Thomas Crews, Mr. John Ely, Dr. Neil Sikka, Madelaine Kelly, Maia Ayling, Dr. Shreedhar Vaidya, Devonshire Preparatory School, Vishwa Mohan Tiwari (Retd.AVM), Jenny Brett and Helen Perkins were honored as volunteers of the year in respective categories for their outstanding contributions during the year helping us in taking these works further. 


We are very much obliged of our all volunteers and supporters for helping us in bringing these works to this stage and continue to help us in taking these further. Please do join us for the    Annual function to celebrate beginning of 5th year of Snehalaya at Gwalior, M.P., India from 21st Aug. to 23rd Aug. 2010 starting with Annual sports competition on 21st Aug. 2010, among children with disabilities from all over M.P., various other events and activities contiue.

"Moorti Pratishtha" in The Goddess Durga and Navagraha temples though planned for 23rd and 24th March 2010 along with laying down of the foundation stone of RadhaKrishna temple in Snehalaya has been postponed for Nov. as advised by learned superiors because of............ don't know?  



Please join us for the Havan, Bhandara and Moorti Pratishtha ceremony in Snehalaya at Gwalior, India to be held in Nov.2010, details yet to be finalised. As told to me by Swami Shridhdhaanand, this Navagraha temple will be unique, where Anushthaan for individual "Graha Shanti" can be undertaken in respective temple of the Graha rather than doing it for all nine Grahas together. I am told that there is no temple in India or the World for such worship or Anushthaan so far, whereby individual Graha can be worshipped or Anushthaan be performed. I will be happy to know more or correct myself,



Annual celebration at Snehalaya on 23rd August sees launch of 2009 Souvenir and "light for education" to poor village children-




It's fast becoming a tradition at Snehalaya campus! 23rd Aug. was celebrated as "The Annual day" with our children, guests, many supporters and volunteers from India and overseas joining us for the occasion to mark the completion of three years of Snehalaya providing for disabled and destitute children of India. The first day's festivities included the launching of the 'Light for Education' programme(with support of Anna Sadana of USA). As electricity is hardly available in rural areas, this project involves poor school-going children being presented with a solar light for their use to facilitate their studies and work. The full colour Souvenir book for 2009 was also released to mark the occasion in the presence of Prof.Dr.PS Bisen, chief Guest, Vishwa Mohan Tiwari, Retd. Air Vice Marshal and Mr. Michael Binnie from Curch of Ockham in UK. The souvenir with all the pictures and updated information is available in PDF form here as a special download (you will need to have an Adobe "Acrobat" reader or equivalent to read PDF files on your computer). It coincided with Ganesh Chaturthee festivities continuing for eleven days.


"Annual Sports Day" was held on 24th Aug. when nearly 250 children with various disabilities from Gwalior and Chambal region participated in various sports. Prize distribution was done by Mr. Mishra, GM of Godrej and AVM (Retd) Tiwari followed by Ganesh Puja and Prasad with  for all the participants, attendees and guests.

The work is going on smoothly. Now we have 63 children in Snehalaya. We do provide respite care facilities for the children rescued by Childline of Gwalior as well to the needy parents as required. The construction of school work is progressing satisfactorily targeted to complete by June 2010. All this has been possible with your support but much more remains to be done. Please consider and donate your thought, time, talent, cash and kind (gifts, movable or immovable property), kindness and care as much possible. Please contact us for any questions or further details, Many thanks,

Documentary by volunteers of Gwalior Childrens hospital Charity on youtube-

Sebastien Rabas has placed the documentary film made by few volunteers in early 2006 depicting the conditions in Mercy Home, the Govt. run Orphanage in Gwalior, the reason we decided to build our own 'Snehalaya- the home with love". Since then all surviving children have been shifted to Snehalaya. We plan to make Snehalaya a facility for 200 children with a hospital and School on site in few years time and we are sure that we can do so with your support as we had all the time, without which we could not come so far. Details on www.helpchildrenofindia.org.uk and if you will like to see the film, here is the link http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=N0mX0wtnuNs&feature=channel_page



26th Jan. Celebrated in snehalaya- 

60th Republic Day of India was celebrated in Snehalaya on 26th Jan. in presence of guests, volunteers and our residents there. Various cultural activities and patriotic songs were played on the day. Fionna Inglis distributed hand knitted blankets to all the children as knitted by Fiona and her friends participating in Sewathlon, the fund raising event held in Edinburgh, Scotland on 1st Dec. 08.


Now we have an identity in Isle of Man too


I will like to inform you that GCHC is registered in Isle of Man for its benefits among local people there by Alan whybrew, our dedicated volunteer, supporter, advisor and representative there for long and here is what he says- ManASVI (Mann Aid and Support for Village India)is Isle of Man registered charity number 1023. There are over a thousand Manx registered charities! There will be certain tax advantages for me and other tax payers in Isle of Man, such as tax relief on charity donations of under £100 and tax relief upon travel costs to India. The purpose of ManASVI is to make people on the Island aware of the needs of the poor in the Gwalior region, especially the villages. A Manx registered charity will give a more direct connection between the Island and Gwalior’s villages. I believe this may be the key to creating more of an interest on the Island. It seems to work for other Manx charities. The Inland Revenue cannot give automatic tax relief (Gift Aid) to UK residents who make donations to a Manx registered charity and hence I shall not ask UK residents to donate to ManASVI, but continue GCHC only to them for their donations with available tax benefits”.


Here is the recent news and update with our best wishes for Christmas and New Year, From BK for GCHC and Snehalaya







We are very happy to say that Devonshire House School in London has accepted Gwalior Childrens Hospital as 'charity of the year' and has agreed to raise money for “Snehalaya” for the next two years. It is really a good news story in these difficult days. We are much obliged of Neil and Nicola, our long time supporters to have convinced the school authorities for sponsoring GCHC and Snehalaya. Neil and Nicola's children study in this school. Neil gave a talk to the school children informing them about GCHC, Snehalaya and its work. The school aims to raise 10000 pounds Sterling or even more to cater for all the requirements of all the children in Snehalaya for a year at least.

To begin their fund raising for Snehalaya, the children did Carol Singing and it was a good start raising 350 Pounds. We are much obliged of the children, all the staff and parents for their support to provide for the children of Snehalaya- our home with love. Thanks to every one.

Tripathi,IPS (Transpor Commissioner of Madhya Pradesh)in presence of famous Kavi Kulwant Singh from Mumbai and many supporters, volunteers and local dignitories.

The function concluded with Kavi Sammelan whereby Kavi Kulwant Singh and Dr. S.D. Sharma entertained all the attendees and I do not think any one was there who did not enjoy or laugh.

During these two days people from surrounding villages joined in addition for The Akhand Ramayan and Keertan with A Bhandara Lunch for every one.

We are very much obliged for your support, without which this could have not been possible, but we need more to carry it forward.

We hope to make the new school functional from June 09 with beginning of school session and will cater for girls who remain uneducated otherwise undergoing oppression all their lives. With education and vocational training, we aim to make them independent to be able to lead a life with dignity.

We welcome expert volunteers, students and trainees from all walks of life to work with us to train our staff and students as well provide their services to the community and or gain work experience as per their convenience for any duration in the field and area they are interested in.

Letter from Dr. Subhas Saxena of Ireland for Snehalaya



Dear Dr. Sharma,

I came back to Ireland on 21st April and below I am giving you my impressions about Gwalior project-

Snehalaya - I am yet to see so well managed home for special needs children in India. In a way I was proud as an Indian to see that we too can manage such specialised and difficult ventures so skilfully. It obviously is your vision and selection of staff of that calibre. You deserve the credit of putting such humanitarian ideas into practice. The other aspect of this centre which hugely impressed me , was the work force of dedicated young boys and girls . These young persons are showing not only the will to serve the most vulnerable section of society, they are giving people of our age a hope for the future of our country.

Rural Hospital - It is again a great idea not only to treat the people through mobile clinics, more impressive work of this unit was the doing difficult task of health education of people in the country side. With best wishes and regards, Subhas
