We started to take care of the children’s when a child was found abandoned in front of a temple and was brought to us. Many more children’s followed later. They are children who haven’t had that childhood that has a birthright registered for other children in the world.
Many also lost their parents to illness (especially HIV / AIDS / Alcohol). Some children have only one parent (usually the mother) who cannot take care of them. Others have parents in prison. We don’t even know the story of some children. In Vanaprastha there are no differences in caste, creed, color, gender or place of origin. If a child needs it, we welcome it.
