Unique Home for Girls is located in Jalandhar, Punjab, India and is run by the Bhai Ghanayya Ji Charitable Trust. Unique home takes in unwanted, abandoned female children.
Bhai Ghanayya Ji, a devout Sikh of Guru Gobind Singh Ji is remembered for his great example of selfless service. He never descriminated when helping soldiers on the battlefield. When other soldiers complained that Bhai Ghanayya Ji, a water carrier for the Sikh army, was giving water to the enemy, he replied that when he saw injured soldiers on the field he did not see Sikhs or Non-Sikhs, he saw the Guru in every man.
Bhai Ghanayya Ji Charitable Trust was established on May 17th 1993 and runs Unique Home with this same spirit. The home is run by Bibi Prakash Kaur Ji who works selflessly to provide these young girls with a warm and loving environment in addition to basic daily necessities and a proper education.
Abandoned girls are typically left in a hatch that is attached to the home. Upon the arrival of every new child, the entire house rejoices at the addition of a family member. Girls are given Sikh, Hindu, Muslim and Christian names, faith has no restrictions at Unique Home. Once a year, on April 24th they all celebrate their birthday. Bibi Prakash does not allow adoption of these girls for the fear that they will be solicited or abused. Many of the girls go on to attend college and get married. Bibi Prakash Kaur continues to be involved in their lives to ensure that they are treated well. Some of the women return to provide care for the next generation of girls at Unique home.
