Child Care Ministries

In 1966, Child Care Ministries opened in India to offer a better living and learning atmosphere for children.  Similar to boarding schools, hostels provide a place to live, proper nutrition, clothing and needed medical care for sponsored children.  The children go to school near their hostel.  House parents offer care, discipline and training in the Lord.  Some kids have the fortunate advantage of living in these conditions; much better than they would live under at home.  Many Indian children live on the streets because there is no other place to go.

 At the hostel, children have access to water for bathing and washing clothes.  Annual checkups, inoculations and weight records are services provided by staff members.  Compulsory exercises and recreational activities are part of the program, too.

Five Child Care hostels are operating in India:  Bombay and Ballarpur each house a boys hostel, in Umri two hostels provide proper living conditions for a group of boys and a group of girls, and the Bangalore hostel opened in 1994.
