Raising at-risk and vulnerable children in the love of Jesus Christ.
The Home can accommodate 30 children at one time and kids are accepted based on urgency of their needs. Some are orphans; others have one or both parents who can't care for them due to extreme poverty or abuse. Most are from Hindu backgrounds and have never heard about Jesus Christ. We raise them in the discipline and instruction of the Lord, receiving daily training in God’s Word and attending church.
'Jacob and Blessy are houseparents who live at the Home and care for the myriad of needs of so many children.
A typical day starts at 6 a.m. for prayer, chores, and breakfast. School is 9-4:30, then snacks, chores & homework. Dinner is at 8 with evening prayer & bedtime at 9.
Older kids help the younger in activities from washing clothes to getting ready for school. The Children's Home is a family; everyone participates & shares with each other.
If a child succeeds in school and we have a sponsor, they go to college. After turning 18, most children return to relatives. A child with no family or work stays with us until they can support themselves.
GGM cares for children in crisis because the Body of Christ provides for their needs! We do this through sponsorships. $80/month covers food, housing, and education of 1 child. Shared sponsorships are also available.
Sponsors choose a specific child to build a bond through prayer, letters, photos and live video calls. And, we always welcome visits to experience the blessings of your sponsorship. We care for children equally so gifts are pooled (IRS requirement). Your sponsor child is very aware of your support; they pray for you and cherish communication.
