Kallu Sekhar and Mary started as home parents in 2012 and are well experienced and enthusiastic about giving hope and a future to disadvantaged and orphaned boys. We are glad for the support we received from overseas and Indian donors over the years. Even Alumni of the home today give regular help. In addition, the home is being subsidized from the general funds of IID Association for children that have no sponsorship. We wish that each of the children may find their individual sponsor.

While the exclusive institutional home care has helped hundreds of young lives to find purpose and hope, the focus of IIDA child care is being shifted from home care to family and community care. Besides its advantage of a more family-oriented approach, this step is also needed as the Government of India had ordered all child care homes to hugely increase spending on inmates and facilities, which costs go far beyond of what can be afforded with modest sponsorship rates. During the Coronavirus lockdown period most of the boys were taken home by their relatives and are being looked after from our centre. Only a few boys who had no one to care for continue to stay with our home parents.

The spacious building is being used now as a community service centre and the sponsored boys will come to our centre with their wards once a month for medical check-ups and educational purposes. Our field of service is being extended by incorporating medical, parental and family counselling and social services. Most of the children and their relatives will still be supported at their homes through individual sponsorships. We do invite partnerships there. You are welcome to contact Mr.Sekhar (+91-9505700329 or +91-8639394567) or get in touch via email with him through cn @
