Child Haven opened its first home in Dhanera, Banaskantha district, Gujarat inphoto August 2012 1985. In 1989, the home was moved to a cottage in a mango orchard in Changa. The use of the cottage was donated to Child Haven by the family of the late owner, Sindhuben Joshi, a beloved social worker with the women and children in and around the village of Changa.

The home was later moved to rented premises in Gandhinagar, capital of Gujarat State, "the greenest capital" city in the world.

We have 30 boys and 19 girls children ranging in ages from two to sixteen. They attend Gujarati language school and are tutored in English and other subjects in the home. GandhinagarJudging by the smiles on the faces, it must've been a special meal.
