HIV/AIDS is spreading quickly in India, with 5 million infected adults. As in other poor countries, this will result in millions of orphaned and destitute children.
With the funding to date, we have built additional toilets on the second floor for the children in anticipation of completing the building to care for more children. At present we support 26 children: Seven children are attending Nursery School which is at a back side street of the Little Hearts. The remainder of the children are studying at the Government School which is just a two minute walk from the orphanage. To date, no children are infected with HIV.
