The young children who enter the Bandipur Children’s Home arrive with fear in their hearts. They are often leaving a life of child-labour, abuse, and neglect, and they don’t know what to expect. But what greets them is a family, and a community that is endlessly supportive and loving.
During our recent visit to the Home, we were able to witness the arrival of the newest family member, a 9-year-old boy. Witnessing him in this unthinkable state of transition from one kind of life to the next was something none of us will ever forget. And watching the other children respond to this new addition with empathy and sensitivity was so powerful it brought tears to our eyes. Seeing this love in action, we left the home knowing that the work we’re doing is meaningful, impactful, and absolutely life-changing.
Including this new addition, we now have 13 wonderful children who depend on our support. Many people have asked us about sponsorship over the years, and we are excited to announce that in the upcoming weeks we will be launching a sponsorship program that will help you support one of our amazing children, and give you the chance to get to know them all a little better.
This visit left us so inspired and empowered to continue this valuable work, and we hope you’ll join us on this journey. Your support has a huge impact on this family of amazing young men and women who deserve the very best.
