Aarti Homes

Helping girls help themselves


La Venya is proud to have partnered with AARTI HOMES to give women, wings to fly.  Since the day in 1992, when she decided to shelter an abandoned girl, Ms Sandhya has gone a long way and has been doing great service to the society. It is unfortunate that India, in spite of progressing towards development at a brisk pace, is neglecting it’s daughters at the same rate, if not faster.

AARTI HOMES started as a shelter for abandoned girl child, but soon realized that there is another girl who was unable to protect her girl child- “the mother”. Today, AARTI HOMES works with both girls and mothers. Schooling and shelter to abandoned girls is provided, thus giving them a chance to live and succeed.

Reports show that there are around 60 million missing girls in India. This is a staggering number and AARTI HOMES is doing its part to eradicate this menace. It is time www.lavenya.com and AARTI HOMES get together to spread awareness about the importance of women. We are very proud to have partnered with AARTI HOMES and are looking forward to achieve the objectives put forth for the coming years.
