Shia Girls Yateem Khana


Nobody doubts the good intention of the donors, travelers, and volunteers who give time or money to orphanages. It is natural and right to care about poor and vulnerable children, wherever they are in the world. But what if this support was actually part of the problem, not the solution? What if orphanage tourism, voluntourism and donations were fueling the demand for "orphans", and so driving the unnecessary separation of children from their families? In India, as in much of the developing world, orphanages are a problem, not a solution.

    Shiya Girls Yateem Khana was founded by Moulana Israr Haider Murtazavi Qummi in 2008 and we care round about 35 orphans. As a registered Non-Governmental Organisation, our mission is to provide shelter, nutrition, safety, healthcare, and a long-term education to orphaned children at risk. It is our hope to provide an environment which offers an opportunity to excel and rise above the tremendous obstacles life has put before them.

      We are a non profit orphanage which is totally depend on the public donation funds. Our step is to bring orphan girls into the real guardian life. We introduced girls orphanage in 2008 and the Mission works hard to provide a loving home and family for every child in its care working hard to promote family relationships and impart a spirit of responsibility in every member of the organization.

Although family is the ideal solution to the orphan crisis, we understand that it's not an immediate option for most children globally. That's why we believe our place in the ever-evolving landscape of orphan care is to support orphanages and children's homes. We do whatever it takes to rescue struggling homes from failure or destitution, because we know failure isn't an option when the lives of children rest in your hands. We come alongside partner homes with training opportunities to raise their standards of care, because we believe every child has a right to a safe and nurturing childhood. And we provide the means for our orphanages to pursue self-sustainability, because we want more for them than mere survival.
