The second welfare organization is the Love Trust for Indian Children in Need. As the name already states, this is a lovely organization that takes care of unwanted children and unwed mothers. Unwed mothers can stay in the mother care center for a few months and deliver the baby free of charges. The baby will be nursed at the baby care center. After 2 months the babies are free for adoption. Abandoned children till the age of 6 years can also stay in the Love Trust. The main aim of the Love Trust is to find a family for these unwanted children. In last 10 years 255 children have gone for adoption. As a Trainee you can help a hand with caring for the babies. The interaction with the aayas, nurses, in the Love Trust is great and they will try to involve you with their work as much as possible. To raise awareness for the Love Trust, it is important to visit nearby village doctors and give information about the work that is been done. As a Trainee, it means a lot if you attend these doctor visits, the experience of seeing real Indian living standards in the villages is eye-opening. Above organizations are run by the lovely Agashe family. They speak well English and will always be a helping hand for you. A Trainee has her/his own room with bathroom and toilet. There’s even a cook who will prepare real Indian food for you daily. The accommodation is basic, but nice and clean.
