Maher has every year many, many volunteers from all over the world. Some come for a few day, others stay over a month. They all contribute a lot to daily life in Maher, playing with children, working in office, cooking with housemothers, English lessons for women and children, etc. Every volunteer is welcome to stay.
To get a better idea, how your time as a volunteer could be, Marietta Gaedeke wrote an short article about her time as a volunteer in Vatsalydham. We hope, you will get a better impression, what you can expect as a volunteer and how your life in Maher can be.
Maher added to its existing 25 children's homes a new house, named “Sadabahar”, what means “ever blooming”. It was opened by the hands of Maher benefactors, Mr. Saleem Fazelbhoy & Dr. Suresh Ohja on November 28, 2013. The inauguration took place in the presence of a number of guests and friends of Maher. They included Dr. Mrs. Jaju, Sr. Flori, residents of Premnagar and a few volunteers from abroad. The new house is located at Premnagar in Wadgaonsheri, Pune City.
