Caring For: 192 children, 15 women
The Hyderabad home was opened officially in 1986, with 27 children from three remote villages. In 1992 we built larger quarters where, at the present time, we care for formerly destitute children, ranging in age from newborn to twenty-one years. They attend local schools where the Telegu language is spoken. Extra tutoring is given in the home after school.
Currently the home employs eighteen women who work as matron, caregivers, cooks, nurses, tutors, SoyaCow operators and office staff.
In 2008 Child Haven purchased five adjoining lots. A large dinning hall, Soya Cow room, boys bathrooms, boys dormitory and a biogas system wil be installed on these lots. The original building will be renovated, and will house offices, a computer room, a room for tailoring, a girls dormitory, and a medical room.
Child Haven friend Ted Draper made a major donation to the construction of the new building but more money is still needed.
HYDERABAD, The Oceanside Child Haven Support Group in Qualicum Beach, B.C. put up the initial money to construct this much-needed passage way (about 20x25 feet) between the new building, left, and the old building. It also serves as a shady study hall.
Many of the children are from very poor rural areas; some are the children of destitute Tribal people.
