Dear Friends,

We are pleased to inform you that Maher has been granted special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN – ECOSOC) in May 2017. This means that we can actively engage with ECOSOC and its subsidiary bodies, as well as with the United Nations Secretariat programmes, funds and agencies in a number of ways.

This means a lot to us and we are happy to share our joy with friends like you.

Thank you.

Sr. Lucy Kurien


“Maher” (in the Marathi language) means “Mother’s Home”: a haven of hope, belonging and understanding. Our mission is to help destitute women, children and men from all over India exercise their right to a higher quality of life, irrespective of gender, caste, creed or religion.
