History: Orphan's Lifeline has been helping this home since it opened in 2005. The home originally started with 10 boys who were thin and malnourished because they had been forced to work in the brick kilns in the local area instead of going to school. These boys were all orphaned by the death of their parents or they had been abandoned by their parents who were unable to support them. In 2010, the director acquired a piece of land on which we helped them to build a new facility. Moving them from their rented property allowed them to add 18 more children to care for over the next two years. The boys have a large vegetable garden where they can grow their own food increasing nutrition. They are happy and healthy thriving in this loving home environment.
Agape home is located in a Hindu village where the people mostly work in agriculture and construction. The children are blessed to have their own garden where they can learn responsibility and produce some of their own food. We have space to take in more orphan children as we receive additional donors to join with us.
