Become a volunteer and help us to build a better India!


Thank you for your interest in visiting or volunteering at Maher. We welcome visitors and volunteers year-round. Some things to know when planning dates for your visit:

April and May are the hottest months in India. Maher has overhead fans, but no air conditioning.Many of the Maher homes are located in areas that experience severe water shortages in summer. Water conservation is essential.Most children are away visiting relatives during the summer holiday from mid-April to mid-June. Also many Staff members are on holiday, so visits and tours to the different centers are more difficult. Power outages are to be expected. While most last less than four hours, occasionally the electricity may be off for 8 hours or more.
