Twenty-two years ago Chiks opened its first orphanage, closely followed by an additional two homes, all managed by dedicated Indian couples. Self-sufficiency was the aim and farmland was added to the homes. Here is how a shared dream became a reality…..
The need for greater care of children born into poverty and often at risk is sadly a very old story; letting them know they are loved and cherished is what’s most important and that’s what Chiks was always going to be about . . .
How To Help
Following the devasting monsoon rains this summer and further monsoon weather in October we are desperate to complete extensive remedial work. But the cost of damage to our orphanages is stretching this non-profit charity to the limit…..
Years of caring
Children enjoying total care and education
More funds URGENTLY needed after monsoon flooding damage at Homes
Working towards self sufficiency farming
Educating the children is breaking the poverty cycle
Our buses keep children safe on the roads
Fund Raising Events
We are continually invited to give talks to clubs and societies, to churches and schools. And it is a fascinating story to tell, of volunteers in the UK working hand in hand with remarkably inspirational men and women in India who are devoting their lives to changing forever that of ‘no-hope’ children.
We arrange a range of activities, from concerts to sales – and encourage others to similarly plan in support of our Homes and children. And meanwhile? Our remarkable friends in Kerala are steering many of our boys and girls towards success, whether it is a seriously disadvantaged child striving to get to grips with their own language or a bright youngster heading towards a career (perhaps with a vocational qualification or even a degree – it’s no rarity!).
Our friends out there are people with great humanity and some amazing talents – one of whom had worked for many years alongside Mother Teresa. So do please come to us to find out more, and perhaps how you can fundraise for us . . . More financial support means more dreams that destitute children have really can come true.
