Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our current goal is to increase the capacity of the Orphanage and begin construction of an elementary school to provide educational opportunities for children in the surrounding villages and our orphans.

After completion of the elementary school the school fees from the local children will help to offset the cost of operating the orphanage.

We have the support of the local governmental agencies in construction of the school and obtaining governmental permissions and documents in order to operate the school.

Our fundraising efforts are continuing in the United States while at the same time we are exploring additional revenue steams in India and other sources. We have an organizational/support team on the ground in India and the United States all working together to complete construction of the orphanage and the elementary school.

Recent completion of phase 1 of the orphanage construction is complete with 50 orphans now housed in the new facility.

Construction was completed early 2013 on the Administration Building for the Elementary School.

We are awaiting additional funding in order to complete both orphanage and school.
