The Saved Pearl Foundation is a registered organization founded by Mrs. Arlene Theknath in April 2015. TSPF supports pregnant girls and women in crisis pregnancy, thereby saving several priceless babies. With an aim to provide requisite information and spread awareness on concerns like crisis pregnancies, female foeticide, female infanticide and ripples of such acts, TSPF aims at achieving an overall empowerment of the girl child and women in our society. Apart from counseling, arranging legal and medical aid and suitable accommodation, TSPF also spreads awareness about certain ignored women related concerns.
Of the total donations obtained, 70% of the funds are directly utilized to help every pregnant woman in need of our care.
- 70% towards support for women in crisis pregnancy
- 18% for management and operations
- 12% for awareness programs
In India, every year around 15.6 million babies (especially the girl child) don’t open their eyes to the beautiful day.
The concerns that dissuade most women from proceeding ahead with their pregnancies are:
- Low literacy rates
- Need for a male child
- Low self-esteem among girls and women
- Lack of support from the spouse/partner
- Societal pressure and its evil branches
Our intervention is primarily focused on assisting young pregnant girls & women who are abandoned by their husbands/partners. We help support by providing them with medical, legal and psychological well-being. Our goal is to support the girl/woman till the delivery of the baby. However, in case of an emergency we are there stand by to assist them.
Quality healthcare and counselling for the well-being of the mother remains our prime focus.
Since inception (April 2015), we have spread awareness by conducting our workshops reaching out to 5800+ children and young adults in schools & colleges, 2200+ women from low-income communities on topics such as Journey of Life, Being Happy, Infatuation vs Love and Sex Education, etc.

Our Recent Case
Our Recent Case – This is with regards to our recent case Supriya*, an unwed mother aged, 20 yrs who has been abandoned by her partner and has no family support. She is in her 7th month and is having a lot of complications. According to the OBYGN she may go in for a premature delivery and if so the baby will then need to be kept in the incubator.
The approx. expense of the whole procedure would be around 1 lac. Here’s where we need your kind help and support. Your generous contribution would help to cover the expenses of the baby and the mother.
Your help will make a big difference in saving a priceless life.
