Focused on the Vision, Vatsalya Trust Mumbai, creates lasting solutions to improve quality of life for destitute and deprived of all ages, race, caste, religion and gender. We provide comprehensive services for Adoption, Orphanage, Old Age Home, Care of destitute girls, thus live up to the name “Vatsalya”, a Sanskrit word meaning affection.

Vatsalya Trust, Mumbai is registered as a Public Charitable Trust on 08.02.1983 under Bombay Public Trust Act 1950. 

Founders are Smt. Sanjivani Raykar, Late Shri. G.A Damle, Late Dr. Shivram Athavale, Shri. Nijasure along with a few other philanthropists, who intensely felt a need for starting a care and rehabilitation institute for the orphan, abandoned and destitute children.
The main objective of the Trust is to 'care, protect and empower destitute and deprived members of the society with special emphasis on orphan/ destitute children and marginalized unskilled youth'.

Often we receive newborn within hours of delivery from Maternity Homes and we also receive infants, abandoned in public places like temples / garbage bins / railway platforms and so on brought to us by Police Department. We are recognized by Central Adoption & Resource Agency (CARA) which primarily deals with adoption of orphan, abandoned and surrendered children through its associated /recognized adoption agencies.


“To create lasting solutions to improve quality of life for destitute and deprived of all ages, race, caste, religion and gender”


Help the destitute and deprived under our care to get the right to survival, protection, development and participation in societal development. Eventually help them earn dignity and self respect in the society.

Core values:

“Love, Affection and Care”

Till date, around 1200 children have found their adoptive homes through the efforts of Vatsalya Trust. We have long term relations with our adoptive families and the adopted children, who now, are our Volunteers, Donors. We are FCRA registered and proudly state that India Development and Relief Fund, Inc. (IDRF) is appreciative of the exemplary work done by Vatsalya Trust Mumbai. We are proud of the Gold Certification by Guidestar India and ISO 9001 :2015 certification by TUV Austria.

Currently Vatsalya Trust Mumbai has projects located in Maharashtra State at Kanjurmarg, Sanpada, Alibag and Badlapur. For reaching out to remote tribal beneficiaries we also associate with local NGOs, for instance, with Mauli , Shikshan Sanstha, Valwanda, Palghar for Patient Assistant Programme.

Vatsalya Trust Mumbai has thus grown from the tender sapling planted in 1983 to a big tree, spreading its branches in space and activities, standing on the roots of the core values : Love, Affection and Care.
