Ehsaas was founded in June 2002 with the distinct goal to work towards mainstreaming disadvantaged children so that they can lead a life with dignity with no stigma attached. Ehsaas has a strong belief that community participation would bring the desirable change in our society. Ehsaas works with children in difficult circumstances, children on railway platforms & on the streets without any responsible adult, children without parental care & support & children with families in crisis situation.

Over the years, Project KHEL has worked with the children at various drop in centers of Ehsaas, and also partnered with Ehsaas under the Safe City Initiative to work directly with children in a slum at Shram Vihar. The longest standing partnership was with Gharonda – a shelter home for boys run by Ehsaas.
