About Us

Chaitra and Anand founded the Jnana Deep project 10 years ago and were convinced that they can achieve a significant improvement of the living conditions of the slum children even with limited resources. Chaitra is a teacher and is holding a M.A in Child Care & Development. Anand is a Hindu priest and has a master’s degree in NGO management.

In the past, the two initiators have financed the project through their own means and smaller donations which came from the community. Through the establishment of a trust and a healthy network of supporters, there is now a solid basis for their work and the children. But we still need your help.

In Jnana Deep Home currently 15 boys are living full-time. Their age range between 7 to 15 years. They were fully entrusted to Chaitra and Anand by their parents for their schooling period. At this place they learn to have a regular daily routine, maintain cleanliness in order to avoid infections, to keep their clothes and their rooms tidy and above all: to go to school.

For this purpose, they receive tuition, learn to take responsibility for their lives and get support in all matters of life. A healthy diet, medical care and guidance on ethical principles. They are supported here to obtain a high school diploma which paves the path for their future. 

The children's parents are migrant workers who have odd jobs in construction, live in tents and slums at different sites in the city and cannot provide a stable and safe environment to their children. In the past most of these children helped worked at construction sites or were supervising their younger siblings.
