We are the first to provide 100% clean water in the area.
Our center is powered by solar power backed by gas generators and public power grid.
All the board members are volunteers and all the funds raised go towards the caring of the children.
Many of the kids who came to our center as babies are now in college graduating as doctors, lawyers and engineers.
Our kids go to public schools and they are always part of the local community.
Our center has all the facilities inside the center including house nurse, care takers and administrators all of them fully employed by us.
