About

A "Mother's House" where, through sheer love, understanding and caring, distressed and traumatized women and children from rural India, are given hope and the right to a better life.

ECHOING THE SPIRIT OF MOTHER TERESA,
DISCOVER THE WORK OF SR. LUCY KURIEN & THE MAHER PROJECT
Maher (“Mother’s House”) presents an effective practical response to appalling injustices …and a model of hope for agencies and programs that work with oppressed
women around the world. Maher is a remarkable center for battered women and children located near Pune, India. Founded in 1997, the project has provided refuge to more than 1350 women, half of whom would likely otherwise have been murdered, committed suicide, or starved to death. Maher is an interfaith community that honors all religions and strongly repudiates caste distinctions—making it a rare beacon shining new hope upon
some of the gravest problems in India and across the globe.
