Summary

This project is set up to support the day to day care of the children of the Good Shepherd Agricultural Mission in India. In the heart of every child is a hunger for home. Not just for food and a place to sleep, but for safety and community. Most importantly: for love. The mission is more than a home for unwanted Indian orphans. It is a family. It is a nearly self-sustaining organization; a working farm, a vibrant school and all this while receiving no government assistance of any kind.

Challenge

The GSAM has around 65 children in its care. These kids need the obvious things like food, clothing, education, buildings to live in, power bills paid... you know, all the normal stuff orphanage need money for. More than that though, we believe a childhood should be made up of good memories, of fun times, activities, adventure! Our project is set up in the hopes of helping to create amazing childhoods for these kids. They might have had a rough start but life can get better from here on in!

Solution

While the mission tries to be as self supporting as it can additional support makes a huge difference. Our budget for this project is a fluid one: the more money we raise, the more we can do for the kids. We hope to see plenty of exciting activities funded, adventures, camps, trips... but also the regular stuff, the toothpaste, doctors visits, the power bill and new furniture for the kids rooms. The only thing we will not be paying for from this project is administration costs & staff salaries.

Long-Term Impact

Together we can change the lives of these kids. We can send them forward into the world with a bright outlook on life, a spirit of adventure, a passion for compassion and a desire to serve others less fortunate. We can give them a whole new future.
