About Agape children's HOme
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.
is 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.
