The Faith Foundation was founded and registered as an NGO on 9th May 2005 by Smriti Singh, who after her royal and somewhat privileged background became aware that other children/people were not quite so privileged and endured life’s hardships. After working to gain finances, initially worked informally with the children of the slums in Jaipur until the realisation that there was a need for care for the discriminated and stigmatised children who are HIV-positive. After receiving confirmation from the Rajasthan State AIDS Control Society that there was indeed a need for care, Aalingan care home was started officially on the 21st September 2007. Initially, here were two children and today there are twenty, ranging from three years to sixteen. With caretakers, volunteers and sponsors the children are provided with a home, education, and medical support.
Faith is based in Jaipur and its sole motto is to bring a ray of hope into the lives of children living with HIV, by providing such care and support.
The focus of Faith primarily rests on care, counselling, providing healthcare facilities, and generating awareness about HIV.
We endeavour to integrate the children into mainstream education and further encourage cultural and recreational activities. Faith is dedicated to inspiring others to make a difference in the lives of these children.Through these achievements, we help our society in lowering and the prevention of stigma and discrimination. Faith believes that through awareness and help these children and future children will be one day free of the stigma they face.
