About Learning Estate children's HOme

This home began in 2003 and Orphan's Lifeline began to help soon after in 2004. The first rented building that was being used for the home was a small run down facility with no running water and huge sanitary issues which created many diseases for the children. They were very sick, thin and small due to poor nutrition and bad living conditions. With help from Orphan's Lifeline, in that first year the children were moved to a much better rental building which had a well, restrooms, separate sleeping areas for the boys and girls and a large yard to play in. The home has grown over the years and all the children's lives have changed drastically.

About India

A country approximately one third the size of the United States, yet it is second only to China in population, being the home to more than one billion souls. More than half of this nation is coastal and it is bordered by Burma and Pakistan, the latter of which they have had a border dispute for some time. Air pollution is a serious issue and nearly all of the water is undrinkable due to pollution by raw sewage and pesticides. More than 47% of the young children are malnourished and there are 400 million under the age of 18. Poor infrastructure, slow to moderate social development and social inequity due to deep rooted political and cultural/religious conflicts have resulted in a large poverty line! Many of the orphans belong to social and cultural or religious minorities  that live throughout the 550,000 villages in rural India. Poor social status has left these children with little or no help and many are subjected to slavery just to survive.
