We are extremely proud to see many of our children learning to stand on their own two feet both literally and figuratively, settling down happily in their new families, doing well academically, contributing to their family income and being counted as valued members of society.
We also work with their parents/caregivers of the children through counseling on hygiene, nutrition, childbirth and guidance on importance of education.
