Cheshire Homes India, Bangalore Unit is a charitable organisation working for the upliftment of persons with disabilities since 1961. Under its management there are two residential homes. One is located exactly opposite Manipal Hospital, HAL Airport Road, Bangalore-17 and the other is in Whitefield.
In HAL Airport Road home we take differently abled young girls from the economically weaker section of society. We try our best to get corrective surgery to make them able to walk as comfortably as possible. We educate them till they get good job and can go back to society as responsible citizen. In last couple of years around 20 girls have moved out after completing their education and securing jobs in reputed companies. Even some of them got married and settled happily with their families.
We also have a home for elderly destitute women/physically challenged at Whitefield. We will provide them lodging, boarding, medical support etc.
Apart from this we are conducting A Livelihood Resource programme at HAL Airport Road Home to enable disabled young men and women to achieve economic independence by giving them employable skills/training. Approximately 400 disabled persons are trained every year.
Donations received from SCMM 2016 will be utilized for increasing the number of girls residing at our Old Airport Road home up to maximum capacity of 50 girls. Subject to availability of adequate funds, we also plan to provide a study hall for the girls. For the girls requiring additional educational support, we also plan to appoint tuition teachers as required.
