to ensure children a secure future and a childhood they truly deserve
Who We Are
EVERY CHILD HAS THE DIVINE RIGHT TO ENJOY A CHILDHOOD A CHILD MUST THINK OF THE NEXT GAME AND NOT THE SOURCE OF HER NEXT MEAL.
Sharon Welfare Society was registered in 2002 and began work in 2009 to give childhood back to the children on the streets and living in slums. Our home, Sharon Children Home was started with six children. The numbers slowly grew with the magnitude of the problem.We opened the home in 2009. But there’s only so many children we could reach with our home.
There were many more still in the streets, especially in the cities. Since then, we have also started a a Special Training Centre (NCLP) under the Ministry of labour Govt Of India This center provides education and support to children involved in hazardous labour. Through our children home, we could provide children on the street, who are abandoned ,who are destitute and depressed a safe place to rest, have a shower and a hot meal. Our intention, through the shelters is to first tackle the basics but to gradually get the children to take up education by enrolling them in government schools in the locality. Skills training is also provided to the children to develop skills that could provide them with profitable business or employment opportunities.
We Facilitate Safe Learning Spaces
Childhood is a memorable time for everyone. A time when we are showered with love by our families, protected from every difficulty and given everything to help develop our full potential. But for more than half of the children in India this is only a day dream because 50% of children in India are deprived of education; more than half are malnourished and 25 million are orphaned. The step you take today will enable SHARON to ensure children a secure future and a childhood they truly deserve. Your support will ensure children who are orphaned and abandoned, or living in adverse circumstances, their right to live, learn, play and develop. It will also ensure that children with the drive to learn are able to fulfill their dream of education.

— Our Story
SHARON WELFARE SOCIETY is a registered society (NGO) based in Mangalagiri, Andhra Pradesh under the AP Registrations Act 35 of 2001, Sec 12(A) and Sec 80(G) under the Income Tax Act. We started SHARON Children Home in Navuluru, Mangalagiri in August 2007 with 11 children and two caretakers. Since August 2010, we have been running two separate homes for boys and girls. There are millions of orphaned and abandoned children in India; in addition, girls from weaker sections of society do not get an equal opportunity to continue their education; professional skills and attitude are lacking among disadvantaged communities to become economically self reliant. Sharon ensures orphaned and destitute children the right to a family and home, while also fostering equity in education by assisting them to continue their higher education, and providing communities to train themselves in vocations by engaging socially committed individuals, who provide a transformative, nurturing and mentoring environment to help realize their full potential.
