What is Asha Kuteer?
What is Asha Kuteer? Asha Kuteer Foundation is a non-governmental organization (NGO) in Hyderabad that cares for underprivileged, orphaned, or marginalized children, visually impaired people and oldage people. Asha Kuteer was established in January 2013 in Hyderabad by Mr. Jeevan with 04 children, now grown to 85 inmates in our care. It has three homes in different parts of Hyderabad that care for girls, boys, and the blind. Mr. Jeevan believed Hope is the one thing that brings everyone out of the darkest times. He titled his NGO "Asha Kuteer," which means "Home of Hope." For over a decade, he has worked tirelessly to achieve his purpose of safeguarding the young, old, and visually impaired in every manner imaginable.

Mr. Jeevan grew up in a family where he did not receive enough love. As a young man, he was rejected by his fiancée and his career stagnated leading to depression and loneliness.
He went in search of love and happiness. On 1st March 2009, he was at the Secunderabad Railway Station hoping to find a homeless child for adoption. He came across a 7-year-old girl, who turned out to be the daughter of a sex worker. During the conversation with the little girl’s mother, an auto driver informed her that a customer was waiting. The girl’s mother was hesitant to go but, without pausing for even a moment, the little girl told her mother “Go Ma, Go!”. Hearing the girl’s innocent words broke Mr.Jeevan’s heart and prompted him to think beyond his own pain and suffering to see the other side of the world. He realized that there are so many vulnerable children who yearn for love and affection and are devoid of a decent living and a healthy atmosphere to grow.
Mr. Jeevan came out of his depression and got married in 2012. His wife and he took it up as their mission in life to bring home such kids and take care of them. They started Asha Kuteer Foundation on 17th January 2013 with the sole aim of giving hope to hopeless children in our society. Today, this home has grown into a family of around 85 inmates, housed in three respective homes for boys, girls, blind& aged people. As Mr. Jeevan keep saying, “It is worth giving love to those who deserve it than giving love to the underserved!”
Our team comprises competent dynamic individuals from diverse fields with a vast repertoire of experiences gained from practical field-level learning in the arena of education, healthcare, and child development share ideas and responsibilities while striving for excellence in the betterment and consolidation of our organization. With a clear direction and common set goals, we support risk-taking and respecting differences in opinions while being mutually accountable.
To support the younger minds emotionally, spiritually, physically by nourishing them with love, care, mentoring. Empowering the children with the best education levels and high moral and ethical values.
To ensure that poor and underprivileged children grow up to be respected members of society with a potential future and a memorable background. Empowering kids to lead productive lives outside of the orphanage and to become contributing members of the community and successful future leaders.
Care is multifaceted and it includes learning and improvement. Education is a potent tool for altering the lives of these vulnerable children. We help our children to educate themselves in schools for developing their skills and attributes to contribute as leaders in society, escape poverty and look towards a dignified life without the orphanage. We conduct after-school tuition support to assist the children in completing their home tasks and preparing for exams aiding the academic process. We encourage our children to learn music, dance, sports, art& craft, or any other activity that interests them. We ensure that children fully realize their hidden potential within themselves through exposure to various activities and projects. We offer them plenty of scopes to cultivate different hobbies and recreational activities along with life skills and avenues to develop their personalities. Apart from that, the older children learn responsibility by mentoring the younger ones.
Through the care we provide, we intend to liberate our children from the shackles of circumstances and help them stand on a platform from where they can contend with their peers on equal footing. We provide them with behavioural and attitudinal counselling as well as with contemporary vocational and employment guidance that helps them think and plan ahead.
We strive to create a family-like an environment, where the children are not only fed and provided but are also loved and cared for. Asha Kuteer is more than a shelter, it is a family. We ensure that the children receive mental health care and emotional support.
