SLA currently supports three projects in India: Light of Love Children’s Home and School, ASRITHA Rainbow Home and VOICE4Girls.
The Light of Love Children’s Home and School, which we have supported since 2000, is located on the outskirts of the market town of Tuni, in the state of Andhra Pradesh. In this project, we partner with a grassroots NGO, the Nazareth Education Society (NES) – an education focused sister organisation of our original partner in this project, The Nazareth Association for Social Awareness (NASA).
Through the work of our partners we feed, clothe house educate and provide medical care for approximately 400 children at LLCH who are either orphans or whose relatives cannot support them. Our joint purpose is to transform these children’s lives thus enabling them to lead independent poverty-free lives.
ASRITHA Rainbow Home rescues street-children, who have been living in the most vulnerable of conditions, and helps them into a new life in residential care. Our funding supports caring for and educating 100 girls in a safe environment.
VOICE 4 Girls seeks to break the cycle of poverty by providing mentorship and empowerment training to vulnerable girls in education, to encourage them to remain in education and resist early marriage, childbirth and child labour. Our funding with VOICE 4 Girls will help 6000 girls in 30 schools.
