City of Child

City of Child provides a safe and nurturing home in which children can learn, develop, and play, giving some of the most vulnerable children in Pune's slums a chance to reach their potential and realize their dreams.

City of Child targets the most vulnerable children from Deep Griha's child sponsorship program. All of the children are orphans or come from single-parent or foster families. Located about 30 miles outside of Pune, City of Child is far removed from the cramped and noisy streets of the city's slums. It is a serene place, full of lush green trees and the sound of chirping birds.

Children enrolled in the City of Child program are provided with:

  • A safe and secure place to live
  • Three balanced meals per day
  • Enrollment at local schools, school materials, and help with homework
  • Recreation facilities with a playground, games, and a cricket field
  • Medical care
  • Guidance, support, and counseling
