HISTORY AATMIK ARADHANA WELFARE SOCIETY is a non- political, non-profit and charitable organization. It is the brain child of Mr. Vijay, who is a native of Andhra Pradesh, India.

Later on he got married to Mrs Santosh are having three children named Philip and Peter Paul and Ms. Esther Rani. He had visited many slums areas where he saw children and women are neglected. Children didn’t access to school and girls were being prohibited to join in school. The girls were considered as burden in the slums areas like Shashi Garden and Pentanpool He was challenged and inspired by seeing their pathetic condition and poor living standard. With much concern He started working among such neglected and marginalized people with children and women with his little earned money. Gradually many same minded and social activists joined with him and encouraged him to start the social developmental work which was later on registered in 2008 in Delhi in the name AATMIK ARADHAN WELFARE SOCIETY.

ORPHANAGE AAWS’ orphanage is the name to describe a residential institution devoted to the care of orphans children whose parents are deceased or otherwise unable to care for them. Parents, and sometimes grandparents, are legally responsible for supporting children, but in the absence of these or other relatives willing to care for the children, they become a ward of the state, and orphanages are a way of providing for their care and housing. Children are educated within or outside of the orphanage
Today, the population of Delhi is over 14 million. More than 4 million of these people live in slum colonies that are chronically overcrowded and lack even the most basic amenities. Although India is experiencing significant economic growth and increased prosperity, the benefit of this does not trickle down to the level of the slum dwellers and so the gap between the rich and the poor is growing ever wider. Our mission comes together to contribute towards providing quality education for slum children. Every bit of contribution can help to enrich the experience of the slum children regarding learning and gaining knowledge. Many underprivileged families do not recognize the importance of education and so they keep their children away from schools. In order to encourage all such people, free education and mid day meals are being provided at government schools which not only facilitate children, but also help them in making a bright future.
