Rafa Home for Boys was created to help boys with special health needs who come from difficult backgrounds, giving them a nurturing childhood in a safe & loving environment. Some of the boys are orphans; others have family members who have not been in a position to care for them.
As they move into young adulthood upon turning 18, the boys graduate from Rafa Home. Some reconnect with relatives; some go on to further study or employment. Many of the graduates continue to stay in touch with one another and with the home parents who raised them.
Rafa Home for Boys receives new children as assigned by the Child Welfare Committee, Department of Women and Child Development, Government of NCT of Delhi.
The Story of Rafa Home for Boys
Our live-in home parents and volunteers provide a loving and engaging home environment. Most of our boys are enrolled in an English Medium private school, while some avail of NIOS (National Institute of Open Schooling).
The boys receive free medical check-ups and care from a government hospital. Some need counseling and support to handle emotional outbursts and feelings of loneliness and rejection. Home parents play a vital role here, and in some cases professional psychiatrists and counselors are involved.
