We are a social work organization [NGO] working for under-privileged children and youth staying in, and emerging out of, child welfare institutions (CWIs) in the city of Mumbai.

We have been in the field from 1981 i.e. since 27 years and pride ourselves in our non-hierarchical approach to work, wherein, Vinimay as an organization is not only run by volunteers, but, also managed by them.

Rehabilitation of under-privileged youth emerging out of such institutions by way of job placements, accommodation, interest free loans, medical aid, personality development etc. Read more »
