More than 1300 students across Tamil Nadu, India, live and study in six boarding homes and schools supported by sponsors like you. Each morning these boys and girls wake up to play, pray, study and socialize in a safe, nurturing environment.
Typically, the students’ parents are migrant workers or day laborers, whose jobs require a great deal of travel to find work. The boarding homes provide students access to steady, quality education, extra-curricular activities and a community of friends.
Pastor Jane Anitha, the manager of Siloam Girls’ Boarding Home, says she feels like a mother to the more than 700 girls under her care. It shows.
Whether she is supervising elections for the athletic committee, coordinating care for a sick girl, or searching for a dancemaster to teach the girls traditional Tamil dances, Jane puts the girls first, listening and responding to their needs and desires.
This student-centered approach means the girls really feel like they have a “home” in the boarding home.
Your ongoing support of these homes through Project Education India means students from five to eighteen years old have the space to laugh, love and learn together for years to come. Thank you!
