This Holiday Season Please Consider Becoming a Sponsor

Or make a one time donation. Your money goes a very long way in India. $40 is all it takes to put one child through school for an entire year. Read on to hear about all of the wonderful accomplishments we have made in the past year and new things to come for 2018.
100% of the money donated goes towards housing, food, clothing, education, english tutor, and all that it takes to raise 23 children. After a recent board meeting it was reported that with new government regulations and accepting 9 more children, that we were depleting the Foundation accounts since there is more money going out then coming in at the moment.   Below is a partial list of accomplishments made this past year as well as a detailed list of what is needed in the coming year. This is something that is close to my heart and that I support whole heartedly knowing that my money is going to a very good cause. If you are drawn to help please email or go to the children’s website at to see how you can help.  Accomplishments of the  GWF Children’s Home in 2017 1. With the recent highly publicized crimes against women, we had a brand new fence built around the two houses where our girl children live for added security. This 6000 square foot wall made of cement blocks is 6 feet high cost $4000. Our girls are extremely safe now with these added measures. 2. With 8 hours of power outage each day in India, it was imperative to purchase back up power inverters. This cost us $1500 as we now have five houses for all of our children. 3. An extra well was dug this past year at a cost of $5000. There was a 2 year drought in our area and so this new well is very important to us. 4. New library with both English and Tamil books. 5. Medical Infirmary and full-time nurse. 6. We now have a Computer Center with 15 computers donated to us. 7. Bunkbeds for our kids so we have more space. We love our new bunk beds! 8. We purchased a 14 seater 2nd hand bus. Now we take educational road trips.

Kannan and Suganthi Marry!

Our manager Kannan here on the right married Suganthi who is one of the children’s house mothers! So we have a love connection here at the Children’s Home,
KannanNSuganthiWhen I was in India this past January I spent an afternoon with Kannan who manages our Children’s Home in South India. Kannan was himself an orphan and Satya has been his mentor for the past ten years. Satya decided to put Kannan to work at our Children’s Home to take over management of the kids. That was over four years ago now and he has done a fantastic job with the children. Since Kannan is 32 years old I had a discussion with him about the possibilities of him marrying soon. I told him that he would have to find someone who loved the kids as much as he did and he completely agreed.
