Summary

HEARTS in Nellore, Andhra Pradesh India, needs financial support for housing, food, medical care, and education for young orphaned children.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Andhra Pradesh has the highest number of HIV patients in India resulting in too many orphaned and destitute children. These children are at risk of hunger, disease and persecution. The director of Little HEARTS Orphanage is often called to the local police station to pick up a child who has been abandoned. He has opened the door in the middle of the night to a grandfather who could no longer care for his small grand daughters and brought them to HEARTS. This project will save these children.

How will this project solve this problem?

HEARTS orphanage provides a home, nutrition, health care and education to homeless and hungry/starving children. Little Hearts will provide nutrition and health training and education to local HIV+ mothers and children. Education includes daily tutoring in English and other subjects as the children attend government school.

Potential Long Term Impact

In the next few years, the need for services for AIDS orphans will become more acute throughout India. This project provides education and hope to children who had nothing. They can now grow up to be productive citizens and end cycles of poverty.
