However, anyone willing to spend some time, party or have a special treat for the children can visit or call the Manageress or Office line for such arrangements to be made.

HOW DO I SPONSOR FOR THE EDUCATION OF A CHILD IN THE HOME?

As a government facility, it is expected that the children in our facility attends school in government schools. With that notwithstanding, there have been stances where individuals, groups and educational institutions have expressed interest in sponsoring some of our children in school or to attend a particular school. In such situations, the sponsor identifies and deals with the school directly, whilst the Home avail all the children who fall within that particular class category to the school to undergo the selection process. This is give the children a fair playing ground to exhibit their potentials through which a suitable candidate will be selected.

What are the needs of the Home?

Though, the Home is in need of everything that goes into the upkeep of children, it’s been realised that most items that are frequently donated are sweets and drinks which offer minimum benefit in the children’s upkeep.
