About St Gregorios Charitable Society

St Gregorios Charitable Society is the charity wing of St Basil Orthodox Church, Rohini functioning under Delhi Orthodox Diocese. Aanchal Centre is the result of the earnest effort by 150 members of St Gregorios Charitable Society. This organization is not having any source of income apart from the contribution of its members and well-wishers. Considering the work done by the Society, the income tax department has given tax exemption to the donors of the society u/s 80 G of the income tax act.

About Aanchal Project

The project is aimed at providing training to mentally challenged children to make them self-dependent, through appropriate methods of education and help them to lead a normal life. This project was approved by DDA in 2009 and allotted 461 sq.mtrs lands at a very concessional rate. The society members worked very hard and generated necessary funds for the construction of the Centre. Rural Electrification Corporation of India has also supported this project by providing CSR assistance of Rs.1.50 cores. The total project cost incurred so far is Rs 4.00 crores, including the cost of the land.

The Centre started its operation in January this year and we have 52 students at present. We have admitted the students from economically weaker sections. The impact of the training on these students are very good and several students have started managing things of their own. There is a huge demand for admission and almost 60 applicants are on the waiting list. It shows the need of such institution in the Society.

Our main aims and objectives are:

  1. Imparting education and training to these children by using the best technology available.
  2. Imparting vocational training for their employment.
  3. Advising and helping parents through counseling and training.

The center has been opened with the hope and commitment, to provide special education and training to mentally challenged children between the age of 3 to 30years.

The training including transport and food is provided free of cost by Aanchal Rohini. At Aanchal all facilities are provided at free of cost and thus expenses for education, need based medical assistance, transportation, food and other everyday incidental expenditure for the students are borne by Aanchal. The running expenses towards this end for a month will be anywhere between Rs. 3.5 lakhs to Rs. 4 lakhs.

"Aanchal Centre" will have:-

  • Functional Academics with pre-vocational skills
  • Occupational , Physiotherapy and speech therapy unit
  • Counseling and psychosocial rehabilitation activities
  • General medical intervention on need basis
  • IT based skills
  • Yoga, Dance and Music classes
  • Picnics and outings
  • Celebrations of festivals
  • Facility for imparting life skills; cognitive and thinking skills, music and fine arts skills
  • Workshops for parents, grandparents and siblings


To channelize the contributions to meet day to day operational expenditure of the centre, a scheme called "Lovers of Aanchal" has been launched. Though one is free to contribute any amount to the center, as per IT Act to get income tax exemption, the minimum contribution under this scheme should be Rs. 500 per month or Rs.6000 per annum. ( 250 etc.. per month)

It is our collective responsibility. We look forward to your association with 'Aanchal' as a promoter, a well wisher and a financial sponsor.
