Open Arms India has been caring for children in India since 1984. That means many of them have lived their childhood in the home until they completed 12th grade. And then what happens to them?
Unlike some orphanages that simply turn the children into the street at age 16 or 18, we help them go to college, vocational school or take other training to be skilled to hold a good job. We do not want them to leave the safe, protective environment of the home without the needed education and preparation to manage successfully on their own. Without opportunity to live in the home, their futures – if they survived to have a future – were bleak. They were alone with no one to care for and protect them and give them what they’ve received in the home. There certainly would have been no one to advise or help and no way for them to study and achieve and be what and where they are today.
They consider the orphanage to be their own home and the administrators to be parents to them. They come back at holidays and when they are on vacation to reconnect with those they love and to bring treats for the children and donate from the earnings for the needs of the home.
Do we feel like very proud parents? Oh, Yes! And our sponsors should also feel like proud parents too, as the generosity of Open Arm’s supporters has enabled the wonderful opportunities these young adults have received.
