Our project is back on track!

We have great news for you - our project is back on track! 

In past reports you would have read how difficult the government and local authorities made it for us that we were considering closing our project page (not the project of course!). Our guiding principles do not allow us to indulge in the prevailing immoral practice of bribing, and this uncompromising stand has had its repercussions. After a year’s delay, the project finally commenced with the laying of the pile foundation on August 28, 2019.

As this new home will be situated on the shore of a small lake, pile foundations or deep foundations are absolutely critical. 74 large columns made from steel and reinforced concrete have already been laid since August 28. Construction is temporarily on hold due to heavy monsoon rains, but will continue by month-end where pile cap beams will be laid over the 74 columns (capping beams are steel and concrete beams that tie all the piling together to reinforce the entire structure, as designed to our engineer’s specs.)

Here are a few pictures of construction work on the site. Now that things are back on track, we will keep you posted through regular reports with photographic evidence.

Our sincere thanks to all who contributed already to this project. Be assured that every penny has been utilized towards getting this up and running. Thank you for believing in us. Do share this information with your family and friends, and help us get more vulnerable orphaned children off our dangerous streets! As our partner in this project, you have a wonderful opportunity to become a foster parent to 100 little orphaned girls with intellectual disability, leaving your lasting legacy of love for all time!

Watch this space for more.
