In 1997, while traveling in Orissa State in India, there was a cry from young mothers begging for their children to be given hope. After inquiry, it was learned that there was a group kidnapping little children to offer as sacrifices to an unknown goddess. This dire situation led to programs for destitute children in locations across India.
Many Indian Children are denied access to basic needs due to poverty.Our Community Based Child Care Centers are havens where needy children, aged 3-18,experience Jesus 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 alumni association encourages graduates to pay forward their time,talents and treasures.
COMMUNITY-BASED CHILD CARE (CBCC)–Community-Based Child Care is a day program for poor and needy children who live at home but receive three meals a day, clothing, transportation to school, tutoring, English instruction, and medical aid. CBCC also helps the community-at-large by promoting health, hygiene, literacy and income-generation training to the parents. Most of our children served are part of CBCC.
NON-RESIDENTIAL CHILD CARE (NRCC)–The NRCC program is for needy children who stay with their parents or guardians but are not candidates for the CBCC program. These children receive monthly support from India Transformed! for food, clothing and education.
