Many Indian Children are denied access to basic needs due to extreme poverty. Our Community Based Child Care Centers are havens where impoverished children, aged 3-18,experience God’s love and receive food, clothing, medical aid, education and English classes so they are equipped to thrive. We empower their families through support and education.
Our Children’s Program is a safe loving place for impoverished children who live at home to come to our center to receive food, clothing, transportation to school, tutoring, English instruction, and medical aid. The Center also helps the community-at-large by promoting health & hygiene classes, literacy training and social entrepreneurism classes to the parents.
India Transformed International School Sponsorship
The school year begins in June and we have a waitlist of students at our International School who need sponsorship so they can attend our International School and receive food, clothing and medical care. Your sponsorship and love will open many opportunities they may never have. You can bring them hope for a better future! Contact our office to select a child.
Ashok - 197/CBCC/MRK/NLCP
Age 6 - Ashok’s name has multiple meanings in the Indian languages such as ‘king’ and ‘one without sorrow’. The little boy lives with his parents both of whom work as laborers and Ashok has a baby brother. The child has young and innocent dreams for himself but they are marred by difficulties like substandard housing, lack of food security, a diet deficient in important nutrients, unsanitary conditions and not having access to other adequate necessities. The parents are under a lot of stress as they are unable to do much for their children given their financial struggles. The loving support of a sponsor can turn Ashok’s life around by giving him the opportunity to enroll in the childcare center where the caretakers will personally attend to the needs of the child to encourage Ashok to reach his full potential.
Charan - 186/CBCC/MRK/NLCP
Age 9 - Charan is the middle child of his family with a younger brother and an elder sister. Both of his parents are daily wage laborers working in a nearby plastic factory. They got married at a young age without equipping themselves with education and skills or even savings to run a family. The place where the family lives is a slum that has none of the basic facilities required to lead a dignified life. Charan faces daily challenges like hunger and limited access to health care, medical services and basic schooling. He and his siblings have to study in a government school of very low standards as there are no good schools nearby and the parents cannot afford to send their children to a private school. Charan’s well-being and future depend on the contribution of a kind sponsor.
Dhivya W - 167/CBCC/ABR/NLCP
Age 13 - Dhivya’s parents are illiterate village folks who live by means of hard labor. While the child’s father works as a bar bender at construction sites, the mother works as a casual laborer in a tannery and shoemaking unit. Finding work every day is not guaranteed and their earnings together does not go beyond $50 a month, which is too meager an income to provide even the bare needs of the family. The house they live in is a single room and their life has been too hard without basic amenities. Adding to the misery of the poverty-stricken family, the child’s father has turned out to be an alcoholic and what he gives to the family, after his own expenses, is too little to run the family. Dhivya is a lovely little girl studying in primary school with lots of zest for education, sports and co-curricular activities of the school. Dhivya actively takes part in running and long jump events in school sports. Sponsorship support to Dhivya will help her have access to nutritious food, evening snacks, and free tuitions every day, as she would be able to be a part of the education and welfare programs of IT! at the project location. Your kind sponsorship will change Dhivya’s life.
Gracelin - 170/CBCC/ABR/NLCP
Age 11 - Gracelin is a very charming and talented girl who is very quick to learn things and learns them faster than other children of her age do. She is naughty and loves to play all the time.

Gracelin’s father is an agricultural laborer and the mother is a homemaker. A small house and difficult conditions are all the family has and yet they are determined to give quality education to their children, leaving no stone unturned to give them a better future. Your sponsorship can strengthen Gracelin’s zeal to study and live as an example to all children.
Harikrishna - 196/CBCC/MRK/NLCP
Age 7 - Harikrishna is a sweet little boy with big eyes brimming with innocence. The boy is fondly called Hari and he lives with his parents and his elder sister. The father and the mother are laborers who are able to earn only when they find work. The parents have been toiling to somehow send their children to school but having enough to eat and staying alive are already challenging enough. Hari’s childhood will be lost and he might end being a laborer just like his parents unless a loving sponsor comes forward to take up the child’s cause and walk him through his growing years. Once Hari is enrolled in the childcare center he will have better opportunities to have nutritious food, healthcare and growth in all aspects for his future welfare.
Jessina - 171/CBCC/ABR/NLCP
Age 8 - Jessina is a very cute and chubby girl who loves to play with everyone. She attracts everyone with her smile and people love to spend time with her listening to her innocent yet sweet words. Jessina loves to learn her English lessons. She is seen humming or reciting rhymes all the time. The child seems to have a spring in her legs which makes her a lover of skipping. Although Jessina loves to eat pooris and biryani she does not complain about food or crave for any particular food. Her hobby is to be glued to the television watching cartoons. Jessina participates in programs with her dance and singing. Jessina’s father is an agricultural laborer who barely makes two to three dollars a day. The mother is a homemaker. Jessina has a younger brother and the family lives in a small sheet house which is not sufficient to accommodate the four members. Recently the grandmother moved in with Jessina’s family and is now dependent on them.

Lincy S - 164/CBCC/ABR/NLCP
Age 8 - Sweet little doe-eyed Lincy is the third and the last daughter of the family. She loves singing and dancing along with her two older sisters. Lincy’s father’s job is that of an agricultural laborer and the mother is a homemaker. Their financial situation has led them to low levels of health and education, poor access to clean water, sanitation and electricity, inadequate physical security, and insufficient capacity and opportunity to better their life. If having three meals a day and staying alive itself become a challenge, what would the family save and what would they invest in the children’s future? When survival itself is an ordeal, getting the children educated would be out of question. With their present standard of living, Lincy will have no chance at a decent life and future if not for the intervention of a generous sponsor. Through your support, you can make a big difference to Lincy’s life as your sponsorship will fetch her a place in the childcare center where she will be provided a good meal every day with some evening snacks, tuition classes that will help her cope with school studies and Biblical teachings that will help her become the best that she can be.

The family barely has any subsistence, savings or even basic survival needs to lead a dignified life. Depending on the availability of work, both the parents go to work only to make about two to three dollars on the days that they manage to find work. The unstable and low paying nature of the job makes it hard for the family to rise up their challenging circumstances. The future of the family to a very large extent depends on Mathaiah as he will be the man of the house someday and he will be expected to also bear the responsibility of his two sisters too. His schooling, healthy growth and progress can be made possible only by the contribution of a caring sponsor.
Melwin Doss G - 160/CBCC/ABR/NLCP
Age 11 - Melwin, the third child in the family, is a dainty little wonder boy who loves drawing and playing cricket. He has an older sister and an older brother. Interestingly all three siblings have similar names with all of them beginning with ‘M’ and ending with ‘_in’, something that is considered special among siblings. The child’s father is an agricultural laborer and the mother is a homemaker. The family lacks financial resources and essentials that could help them maintain a minimum standard of living. The child would not be able to continue his studies in such a situation where even three proper meals a day are a luxury for them. What they earn in a day is sufficient only for the day and no savings are possible while living from hand-to-mouth. Your support alone can provide a decent life to this child with proper nutrition, education and all round development that are necessary to take this child forward in life. With your help, every day the child will have a healthy meal, tuition classes to give extra attention to his studies and spiritual counselling to lead him towards a righteous life.

Sanjeevi’s father is a coolie who makes a very meagre income which doesn’t help him feed his family that lives in a thatched hut made of palm leaves and mud. To keep their family afloat, they have a few cattle which again cannot help meet the basic necessities of the family of three. The mother does her best to take care of the children and the home.

Suji V - 163/CBCC/ABR/NLCP
Age 12 - Suji the chubby doll of the family has a keen interest in singing and dancing. The father works as an agricultural laborer while the mother is a homemaker. Having only one earning member in the family, it is a great challenge to feed all the mouths, maintain the house as well as provide for the children’s educational needs. They cannot afford the basic goods and services necessary for survival with dignity. In such circumstances they are forced to choose the more crucial option of filling their stomachs every day to stay alive rather than securing the children’s future with the help of good schooling. In such a situation it is a sponsor’s support alone that can give the family the breakthrough that they need. When you take this child up for sponsorship, the child will be enrolled to the childcare center where she will get to eat a tasty meal along with evening snacks; she will be assisted in her studies through tuition classes after school and the caretakers will counsel her personally as well as spiritually in order to groom her and prepare her for a promising future ahead.
Sunil Kumar - 165/CBCC/ABR/NLCP
Age 15 - Sunil is a charming and cheerful young lad who aspires to become a policeman or a teacher someday. Sunil is interested in kabaddi, cricket and cycling. His favorite dishes are biryani and chapathi. Sunil likes to play with dogs. The child’s hobbies include watching TV and listening to gospel songs. The family lives in a very basic rented house as both of Sunil’s parents are humble agricultural laborers earning only up to two dollars a day. Sunil has two older sisters, one of whom had to discontinue her studies after the twelfth grade and the other is very interested in studying but their financial condition is not stable enough to afford the daily needs, therefore receiving good education and acquiring the maximum qualification is beyond reach for Sunil. Just like his sister, sooner or later Sunil might drop out of school too, to take up an odd job in order to support the family. His dreams are awaiting the loving encouragement and support of a sponsor. By the help of your generosity, Sunil will be enrolled to the childcare center where he will receive a healthy meal every day with some snacks, a dedicated caretaker who will care for his needs and spiritual guidance that will help him become a well-molded individual.
Sunkamma - 180/CBCC/MRK/NLCP
Age 10 - Sunkamma lives with her father, mother and her little brother. Both her parents are daily wage laborers in a plastic manufacturing unit. The family lives in a tent and not even their forefathers have had permanent solid houses. Sunkamma and her brother are growing up in very poor living conditions with no sanitation and no necessary amenities, not even electricity or even a proper gas stove to cook on. The paltry and inconsistent sum of two or three dollars that the parents earn every day, is all that they have to live on. It would be nearly impossible for Sunkamma to overcome poverty and make something of herself unless a benevolent sponsor comes forward to take up the child’s cause.
Venkatalakshmi - 181/CBCC/MRK/NLCP
Age 11 - Venkatalakshmi is the baby sister of three elder brothers and one elder sister in the family. The father and the mother are coolie workers who are dependent on daily wages. Venkatalakshmi’s big family struggles to make ends meet with the measly earnings of the parents. The parents have to choose between feeding the five children and educating them, however, having sufficient food for the entire family every day in itself is a challenge. If good nutrition is the bedrock of child survival and development, then the chances of Lakshmi growing up to be a healthy and resilient individual are very grim. One of her siblings has already dropped out of school and Lakshmi might not be able to complete schooling either. The kindness of a sponsor alone can bless Lakshmi with resources and motivation to nurture her and lead to a better life.
Vettri Maran J - 162/CBCC/ABR/NLCP
Age 12 - Vettri Maran was given this name very fondly by his parents so that he would be ‘victorious and unchangeable’, which is the translation of his name. Vettri is interested in running, dancing and playing cricket. Being the last son and the only boy amidst two older sisters, Vettri’s parent’s dream of the boy receiving good education and taking charge one day as the man of the house. However, educating children in India is an expensive affair and when there are three children to be looked after, the school expenses become cumbersome for such poor parents. Earning enough to provide for every single dependent at home is very difficult for the father as he is merely an agricultural laborer and the sole bread winner of the family. Having less food to eat in a day, surviving on little and sacrificing for the family, are all a part of their daily routine whereas a good day for them would be if they go to eat three proper meals and had the assurance of providence for the next day. Only with your contribution as a sponsor can Vettri’s plight be alleviated with the promise of good nourishment through snacks and a meal at the child care center and extra tuitions to help him learn better.
Yogendra - 190/CBCC/MRK/NLCP
Age 8 - Yogendra is the middle child of the family with an elder and a younger sister. Being the only boy at home, he is special and pampered. The parents of the boy are daily wage laborers and he also has a grandmother who lives with them. Their labor work does not fetch them sufficient income to run the family and also provide the children with a fulfilling childhood. Yogendra does not how it feels to be well-fed, to study in a good school or to live in a warm house where electricity and water are available any time. Yogendra might not have had the good fortune of growing up with sufficiency but a generous sponsor can certainly change the course of his life by sponsoring him, which will help him become a part of the childcare center and avail benefits such as a nutritious meal, evening snacks, tuitions to help with studies and other timely help for the sake of his overall development.
