THE CURRIMBHOY EBRAHIM KHOJA ORPHANAGE

Sir (Fazalbhoy) Currimbhoy Ebrahim set up this institution in 1894 on Altamount Road for the welfare of poor orphans from the Khoja Muslim community. Noting the plight of Khoja orphans in the city, he desired to build a home for them. A home where they would receive shelter and food for their bodies and minds. Being an Ismaili Khoja he had innumerable friends following various religions. One of these was Maharaja Madhavrao Scindia of Gwalior, one of the most generous princes. Scindia donated a large parcel of land extending from Altamount Road down to Pedder Road to establish this orphanage.

As of 2020 the orphanage takes care of approximately 70 children and sponsors their schooling and higher education. The trust is Chaired by Tabrik Currimbhoy
