We opened the Friendship Children’s Home in Siraganur in 2006, to provide a safe, nurturing environment for the parentless or vulnerable children we encountered in our work. Designed to give 15 a home, it has since doubled that number. The Friendship Children’s Home relies on volunteer donations to provide them with housing, healthy food, healthcare, and education.
VOICE Trust ensures that children have a chance to enrich and use their education through games and activities. With the help of volunteers, we have been able to celebrate special events like Deepavali and Independence Day with the children. For these celebratory holidays, we believe it is important that everyone has the opportunity to participate and celebrate how they see fit in safe places with materials that reflect their beliefs and opinions.
VOICE Trust is also committed to helping the children learn how to plant and nurture their plants as a way for them to care for the environment. We believe educating the children on environmental issues will encourage them to make better choices in the future and instill a strong sense of personal responsibility for our planet.
In 2016, volunteers from France started an ecological agriculture garden with the children of Friendship Children’s Home. This initiative has benefited the children and has allowed them to grow their own crops.
Our primary goal is to ensure these children are cared for in a nurtured, loving environment that will give them the knowledge and confidence to flourish in the future. We are always excited to see one of the children graduate and move forward towards success.
