WHO WE ARE
SOFKIN is a non-profit organization registered in New Jersey, USA, and Hyderabad, India, to support the upbringing of underprivileged children, striving to make a difference in their lives.
We practice our belief by establishing and supporting SOFKIN homes for children. The children are not only given food, shelter, clothing, medical and education facilities, but are also given a secured home where they are cared for, guided and nurtured by the housemothers. The house mothers are battered and destitute women whose lives have been transformed by the Maher project (www.maherashram.org). They are trained in cooking and caring for children, evaluated for efficiency, character, and attitude before being placed as housemothers in these homes. Each home will have 10-15 children with two housemothers. This operating model not only benefits children but also the women to be self sufficient.
SOFKIN is currently supporting over over 90 children in five homes in Pune and Hyderabad,India. The children inducted into SOFKIN homes go to regular schools and have been performing well in both academics and extracurricular activities. They won many awards in various school and district level competitions. They are the example of positive difference one can bring into the lives of these children by giving love and care in a secure environment.
SOFKIN is a thin organization with minimal administrative overhead ensuring every dollar raised is utilized in the best possible manner.
SOFKIN works with other nonprofit organizations with similar objectives to strengthen and extend services for the upbringing of underprivileged children in the global community.
"Support the upbringing of under privileged children, irrespective of name or nationality, caste or creed, race or religion by providing basic amenities, education and medical aid in a secure and healthy environment"
SOFKIN was a small effort to realize my personal dream that has manifested into a bigger project and is currently supporting over 90 destitute & underprivileged children in India. Thanks to our sponsors & donors for their long standing support and for making a positive difference in the lives of destitute women & children.
