Silent auction at “Sons of Ganga” to support OUR HOME Charity
OUR HOME is an organisation based in Kerala, India, that cares for and educates orphans and homeless children. OUR HOME provides is a permanent home for orphans and homeless children. The OUR HOME Charitable Trust currently manages two children’s homes, and a local primary school for children who in many cases, would not be able to afford to attend school. The organisation works with the local community so that no child is denied the right to an education, adequate shelter, love, care and a nutritional diet.
OUR HOME’s mission resonates with my very own values. Having come from a background in teaching, and having also seen and experienced the conditions in which the underpriveleged in India live, I’ve come to realise that education is the way out of the oppression of poverty and desperation. If we can offer underprivileged children opportunities to grow and develop as individuals and valuable members of the community, then we provide them with a way out a life of poverty and neglect.

It’s my hope that visitors to Sons of Ganga will recognise the value in this and be able to support OUR HOME through their participation in the silent auction.
