About Us

Childlife Preserve Shishur Sevay was founded in Kolkata, India in 2006 to create a model of inclusive, non-institutional care for lost and abandoned girls, some with disabilities, all having been rejected for adoption.

Theses are the children with no known parents, family or community. For each girl at some point in her life, every person, place and thing which was familiar was gone. It was a tsunami of loss. Then Shishur Sevay became their home by way of Court Order of the WBG Child Welfare Committee.

We provide shelter, food, medical care and emotional supports needed by lost and unprotected girl children. Shishur Sevay is their place of safety, security and permanency. Their daily lives now reflect the language, culture, heritage and religion of their origins. They are the Daughters of Shishur Sevay.
