Welcome to Shuktara

Shuktara is a charity based in Kolkata, India, which provides care for children and young people with disabilities who have no family to take care of them.

It was not long ago that we welcomed Muniya to Lula Bari, our girls home here in Kolkata.  A month later in March 2014 Raja Singh was brought to our boys home. They have both settled in really well and are now enrolled at REACH school. Raja is in the Deaf Unit and Muniya in their Special Education Department.
As you can see from the photos they really are now part of a family. The trauma of being abandoned by their own families is part of their past and they have a bright future to look forward to.
