The VEDIKE Children's Home opened in rural Bangalore in 2012 with five at-risk boys living in a temporary dormitory. In 2015 and 2016 the permanent boys' dormitories were completed and VEDIKE Children's Home grew to twenty boys.
We are now working towards opening our girls' dormitories. VEDIKE is passionate about empowering both girls and boys. In order to invite underprivileged girls to come and live on our campus we need to complete the construction of the girls' dormitories, maximise campus security and hire a full-time female warden.
Our long-term goal is to provide a children's home for 120 of the most vulnerable children from within a 40km radius of the VEDIKE campus. VEDIKE prioritises underprivileged children such as orphans and children from single-parent families, the children of migrant workers and the children of transient labourers. We support the children living in VEDIKE Children's Home through providing them with housing, sanitation, food, clothing, school supplies, additional lessons and extra-curricular activities outside school hours.
