Project Gallery Additional Information

Hand in Hand has supported this children's home at Namrata Shah since 2005  in many varied ways from painting and decorating rooms to funding secondary school fees for all the secondary school students. Funds raised have also provided underground rainwater harvesting tanks so that the home does not have to entirely rely on expensive mains water as well assisting the building of the Centre Manager's house so that he can remain on site with his family. 

In recent years the home has generated a lot of local support from businesses, individuals as well as members from the local Anglican Diocese. This support has either been through gifts in kind, individual sponsorship or contributing to the yearly annual fundraising luncheon.
