Welcome to Maya CARE Foundation – The next best thing to family.
Maya CARE Foundation, a charitable organization founded in 2009, dedicated to empowering the most marginalized sections of society – Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) and the elderly. Our unique approach revolves around empowering one section to help the other, fostering a sense of community and support.
Our journey began 13 years ago with a mission to provide free assistance to the elderly, and this initiative is entirely managed by professionals who have triumphed over disabilities. Through the dedication of our passionate team, we have offered 20,872 free visits, providing essential medical, emotional, and logistical support to the elderly across 4 cities in the UK and 72 cities in India.
At Maya CARE Foundation, we take immense pride in our commitment to nurturing leaders who have overcome various disabilities. Our organization has played a pivotal role in assisting over a thousand disabled individuals in finding career direction and achieving personal growth.
As we continue our impactful journey, we aim to extend our reach further and create a profound positive impact on the lives of those in need. Join us in making a difference and building a more inclusive and compassionate society for all.
Maya CARE services are offered FREE of charge.
Maya CARE's long term aims are:
- Serving the elderly: Free services to the elderly in every city of India and to the world with operations managed by PWDs in every spoken language of the world
- Project Bindu: Enable PWDs to become economically independent while leading a professional organisation.
How Maya CARE Foundation Works: Empowering Lives with Diversity
Maya CARE Foundation, where we embrace challenges and turn them into opportunities to serve the elderly with the help of our unique team, Project BINDU, comprising Persons with Disabilities (PwDs). Together, we have three complementary teams, each with varying abilities, making a meaningful difference:
- The Voice Team: Our visually impaired professionals skillfully connect with and assist those in need through voice notes during calls.
- The Data Team: Our hearing-impaired members effectively communicate through "silent" chat with subtitles, ensuring seamless interactions.
- The Power Team: Led by individuals with locomotor or neuro disabilities, they spearhead our efforts and drive positive change.
Empowering PwDs facing socio-economic challenges, we harness technology to offer remote, flexible opportunities with a "pay per hour" approach through data-driven strategies. Thanks to Salesforce, our operations run efficiently, providing personalized services across 72 Indian cities.
Accessibility is vital to us, so we equip our team with laptops, routers, and smartphones, enabling seamless communication through platforms like WhatsApp and Google Drive.
Maya CARE Foundation is dedicated to celebrating diversity and empowering every individual to make a meaningful impact. Join our journey of compassion and inclusivity as we work together to empower lives and foster a strong sense of community and support. Together, we can create a more inclusive society that values and embraces the strengths of each person.

As a senior citizen, going through the usual slowdown in life, it has made a big difference to me to have the company of volunteers Ms. Bishakha Ghosh and Ms. Angela Bhat so generously given. I have also had much practical help from them, in generally getting around in the city, whether for diversion or for necessity. The obvious recognition by Maya CARE, that an old person does not necessarily have to be bed-ridden or incapacitated, in order to gain help and attention, and lead a pleasant, cheerful life - this is what makes Maya CARE deserving of its name.

I am thankful to Maya CARE Foundation for sending a buddy to my 87 yr old Father in law. Mr. Shende (volunteer) who visits us once a week or fortnight, chats with my father in law who has mild alzheimer's and mobility restrictions. Mr. Shende instilled confidence in him, convinced him to do a lot of good things.

Waycool has been using Mayacare services effective start of 2023. Over the course of the past six months, I have seen the Mayacare team grow in terms of their knowledge about various HR processes. It has been a pleasure working with Ms. Sowmya and Ms. Rizwana. They are very diligent with work, calls, meeting participation etc. Both have a penchant for learning that is evident in the questions that they raise during the meetings. They have demonstrated confidence in handling the calls and as a result we are planning to open up the helpline to inbound calls also.
