Home for Girls & Women

Since opening our first Shobha salon in 2001, we have been committed to furthering the lives of South Asian women & children.

As a company, we have sponsored the college education of ten women (through Sarada Kalyan Bhandar) & have contributed to School-on-Wheels (which converts old buses into mobile classrooms in Mumbai & Pune for street children), offering them an alternative to begging & teaching them that education is their way out of poverty.

Shobha’s Home for Girls & Women is dedicated to Shobha Tummala’s grandparents. With a $100,000 (USD) contribution, the home supports 110 girls & young women that range from pre-school to college age.

The home is run by two retired professors who value education & are making sure that the orphans are cared for & are able to attend school. It is our hope that these early philanthropic steps will lay the groundwork for a full-fledged non-profit organization in the years to come.

Programs provided at the orphanage include:

  • Room & board at Shobha’s Home
    Orphan & semi-orphan girls are welcomed in from the deprived families & provided the necessities & means for a higher education.
  • Free English education for girls
    At Nimmagadda Anandamma Memorial Girls School, English language studies start as early as nursery school.
  • Rehabilitation of women at Dr. Lakshmi Ganga Swayam Sakthi
    Women are given support & taught a trade in which they can make a living.
