India Trip June 2016 – This past June, we spent a week visiting our projects. It was exciting to see your donations working hard to provide for the children we serve in India! Not only were we able to get a clear idea of the needs for the coming year, we have come away determined to increase the scope of our projects and reach more children with a lasting impact.
Executive Director Grant – We have been blessed to receive a grant from a private donor that will cover a one year salary for a full-time Executive Director. The Board of Directors has decided to hire co-founder Kristi Werre to take on this new role. Our hope is that with her direction, we will be able to gain momentum and increase funding to expand our current projects as well as initiate new ones.
Vocational Training Project – One new project we are extremely excited about is a vocational training program that will eliminate the risk of human trafficking for the children aging out of the orphanages we support. Our goals is to pilot this program with 20 teenage girls who are currently residing at the Kakdwip Children’s Home in West Bengal.
Kakdwip Children’s Home
The third and final story to the building is complete!
We are currently raising funds to provide nutritious lunches, and school fees for the 165 children who live in this home.
The staff have recently started a poultry income generating project and are expanding their dairy income generating project with a goal to self-fund the children’s school fees and meals.
Consider supporting one of the IGP projects, nutritious lunches, school fees, or our new Vocational Training Project in Kakdwip, West Bengal!
ISRC – Special Needs Home
With your support, the special needs children at ISRC are being provided with:
Nutritious Meals, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, Special Education, Medical Care, and Trained Caregivers.
