  • Start Date 2017-01-01
  • End Date: 2017-12-01

  • Location: The project is situated more then 15 km outside Bangalore on Doddagubbi village.

The New Ark Mission of India was started in the year 1997
by Mr. T. Raja. It is an organization solely dedicated to
rescuing and rebuilding the lives of the destitute and dying
people of the streets. The Home of Hope is a centre of the
New Ark Mission of India.

The aims of the project are:

  • To rescue the destitute and the dying people from the streets.
  • To enrich their lives with hope and purpose.
  • To provide them shelter, care and medication.
  • To impart education for children rescued from the streets.
  • To rescue 1000 lives by the year 2010.
  •  To empower such individuals with vocational training so as to enable them to  become self-supporting and self reliant.
  • To improve basic amenities offered to the residents so that they would lead a fulfilled, noble life and death.
  • To catalyze overall development of the homeless people, NAMI hopes to collaborate with mainstream institutions (both corporate and not-for-profit organizations) that are willing to provide support through finance, medical care, education and volunteers to help support the mission and vision of the organization.
  • To open the 'Home of Hope' Centre in each and every state across the country.

Accomodation:

Accommodation will be provided by the host project campus.


Activities:

Today, the home accommodates and cares for more than
200 residents who have been rescued from the most
inhumane and unhygienic circumstances. It is a place of
solace and shelter for people who are suffering from
AIDS, Cancer and Kidney failures besides many who are
mentally challenged. These residents who were once
disowned by their families and doomed to fend for them
have found a new reason to live. These 170 residents
would have been a statistic on the list of Bangalores
unidentified dead if Raja had not reached them.

The principal activities of the project are:

  • Bringing people from the streets into their new Home of Hope.
  • Kind of people rescued
