Today 150 children make this as their home where they have love, joy and hope. In 20 years time 285 children have graduated from our home. Children in the age group of 6 to 9 are admitted and they continue up to senior high school. Educational assistance and skill training is provided. 4 of our girls have completed nursing and 4 are completing this year. Boys go for technical studies. Our children come from 7 different states of India.
We are located within 10 miles from the town Kottayam, Kerala South India. Surrounded by Pineapple, Black Pepper coconut plantations and teak wood trees etc., there is no air pollution, water pollution or sound pollution.
This is a 3.5 acre campus. The present facility is a total area of 30000 sft. in two levels. It looks like a resort and that gives the children dignity. The children and staff have 3 meals a day and we are blessed with committed voluntary staff. The facility is built with the help of Baptist World Alliance and Virginia Baptist and Vineyard Home ministries, Switzerland.
Our financial needs are met by voluntary donations from people who love children. A board of directors oversee the ministry and Dr. Kunjumon Chacko is the present Chairman of the board. In today’s exchange rate it cost US$ 1 a day to meet the total needs of a child. Donations are receipted and all donors have access to our books.
The donors and child sponsors receive periodic reports, pictures and letters from the children. Several of our donors visit the home and spend time with the children. We invite you also and you will never forget the experience.
