The Children of India program partners with on-going, local groups which care for families and neglected children who need continuous support to ensure continuity of food, shelter and education, providing them the opportunity and hope for a brighter future, and a better life for their children.
For an abandoned child in India, a basic education is the single, most-critical factor between perpetuating an impoverished life cycle or attaining a better life than that which was offered by their circumstances.
John Babu and Jaya Prada Chalapati established the LIVING LIGHT URBAN & RURAL DEVELOPMENT SOCIETY in 1999 with 5 children that they had found begging in streets and searching for food in the garbage dump.
By the Grace of God, the orphanage now has 39 children who are on their way to obtaining a basic education and breaking the cycle of poverty. These and many other children are thrown out by their relatives after their parents have passed away. In this village, the 'Living Light Family' endeavors to bring children out of the streets and provide them with an alternative path to prosperity.
The ministry of John, Jaya, their son Prasanth and 5 staff members provide shelter, food, school supplies and uniforms, as well as the annual tuition to promote to testing for the next year of school, Bible studies, worship services for these children.
The founders of Altruity.org have known and helped the Living Light Orphanage since early 2019 out personal resources.
As the number of children and prices of food have increased, the level of support required for sustainable operations has grown beyond the personal abilities of the founders.
We need your help to continue providing food, shelter, ministry and education for these precious children.
The founders of altruity.org have been in contact with John Babu and provided support to orphanage for several years. Here, some of the children hold a sign thanking 'Dad Brad' in 2019.
Along with the contributions of others, your sponsorship of a child will ensure the continuity of food, shelter and development for all of the children at the Living Light Orphanage.
In lieu of consistent support, the orphanage borrowed some money against their building over the past few years. The amounts have accumulated to total the equivalent of USD$4,634.
The lender recently approached the Director and demanded full payment within a week, else he would seize the collateral... the children's home.
With Altruity.org's assistance the lender agreed to a 5-month payment plan, which Altruity.org has secured with the first payment.
Please help dissolve this lien against the children's home; Thank you for your consideration and contribution!
