In these homes, the children are brought up exactly the way any other child is brought up. They are never made to feel as if they are recipients of social gratis and mercy. MILT believes that a child brought up without experiencing a normal childhood is a potential social outlaw.
These homes are called Snehalayas. Each MILT Snehalaya is run and administered fulfilling the regulations laid down by the State and Central Governments.
There are four registered Charitable Trusts in four cities that generate funds to run the Snehalayas. Apart from donating generously from their own pockets, Miltonians raise funds through fundraising projects like old newspaper collection drive, etc.
All the proceeds go to the Snehalayas. MILT Snehalayas are well-equipped homes with all facilities like refrigerator, TV, washing machines, etc., just like a middle-class home. Each Snehalaya accommodates a maximum of 15 children.
