Charis Foundation is a Non-Profit Organisation and we are all about imparting grace in Family Relationship.

Our Vision

To Equip Family To Flourish
‘In thee shall all families of the earth be blessed’
Gen 12:3


Torah To Thrive in Life
“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live” Deuteronomy 30:19


To serve with absolute moral integrity and financial accountability.


We believe that all Indians are of infinite value, regardless of age, culture, appearance or caste. Human mind is wired for love and serve – Marriage is the foundation of a family and it is a Relationship where both husband and wife are committed to love and serve.


Our founding members Philip & Premina were married on 09 Sep 2000 and they went through very tough and stormy challenges in the yearly years of their marriage. Both were employed in Mumbai but Philip led a stressed and depressed life for years but his wife Premina never quit on him instead she helped him to overcome. In 2004, Philip started enjoying a new philanthropic service during weekends- extending hand of hope to mentally-ill/destitute in the streets of Mumbai.

He started serving them and shifted many to hospitals/Rehab Centres. Philip started experiencing a new strength and power of God’s Grace that flows from inside out which restored and rebuild his family life. When he observed that Fatherlessness (no responsible Fathers at home) was one of the main reasons for destitute abandonment, he gave-up his stressful sales profession on 01 Jan 2007 to focus on his family, Fathering and coaching his boys. His rich experience as a great Husband and a Father taught him amazing life lessons on Family, Parenting, marriage, Relationship etc.

To do much more to our society founded CHARIS FOUNDATION on 01 May 2012 and was fully operational on 02 Oct 2012. Our beloved members Mr.Antony, Ms.Harshita, Ms.Sikta, Mrs &Mr Pramodh, Mrs&Mr Binu Daniel volunteered for the success of this mission. Our journey from pit of depression to the peak of restoration inspires and motivated us to give hope to the broken hearted.
