Welcome 2021 - A new decade, a new hope - for transformed lives!


Dear friends and supporters of the #RoofForAChild campaign,

As we are now in the first month of the year 2021, we wanted to pen a quick note of gratitude, because with your help, many children' lives are being transformed - just because you took the step of faith & sacrifice to educate them. We are especially grateful for your sacrificial commitments in the midst of a pandemic that affected all of us in varying degrees. 

It has been quite the journey with you all and most importantly, with God’s grace, having completed 6 years of successfully starting and running a campaign which has enabled us to complete 3 childrens’ homes, 1 close to completion with dedication this June, and 1 more in progress and more homes in the pipeline.


2020 Updates

  • The ‘Roof for a Child’ annual carnival could not be conducted in the spring due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but instead, we were able to hold a virtual fundraiser in December, which was a great success!
  • Construction has commenced and is in full swing in the Khandwa boys home - slated for completion by the school year 2021-21 with dedication in June
  • Jhawda girls home - functioning well, and this year, they have successfully raised funds for their own school bus. (Previously, they use a leased vehicle)
  • Nandurbar home - First floor construction is going on right now, and we hope to complete it by the end of 2021.
