Kannya turns 6 at Matruchaya, Goa!

As a tradition that we began with the birth of Kannya – our bundle of joy for last 6 years, we celebrated her birthday with kids of her age, who, unfortunately were deprived of parents by the destiny. Like every year, Kannya was excited to spend her special day with these kids who were special for us, and we ought to make this a custom.
Kannya with all smiles set to cut the cake
Something about Matruchaya...
Matruchaya located in a small town in Goa, Ponda, better known for its temples, is a home for destitute, abandoned or orphaned children.
The organization is working untiringly for last 35 years for the welfare of such children. The orphanage which houses two separate units for girls and boys was started way back in 1976. It is recognized by Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA) and promotes adoption, by which the children can have their own home.
We made an effort to bring smiles to them...
It houses about 50 girls and 25 boys, aged between 5 to 18. The 4 cute toddlers brought to this place because of various circumstances, are showered with tender love by all the occupants of the home.
It offers schooling and all other basic necessities for these kids.
It was learnt that Matruchaya takes care of the girls until they are of marriageable age and also offers to get them married and settled in life.
Matruchhaya - where Matru means Mother and Chaya means Shelter – is a true home for these unfortunate children.
We enjoyed the little good time that we spent with the kids
