The orphanage has grown gradually since 1986 as the police, welfare agencies and individuals brought orphan children to KTS from the streets, broken families and half-way homes. For many of these children, KTS was the first stable home environment they had experienced. Through the generous funding of the Lichtenstein Development Service and architect, David Potter, who designed the building and supervised its construction free of charge, KTS was able to build the current orphanage in 1994.
The building incorporates four dormitories with washing and toilet facilities, a kitchen and dining area and a large outdoor area for playing games, such as basketball, table tennis and badminton. The children are given four nutritiously balanced meals a day. The children receive a full education and are supported through the process of establishing an income until they are ready to live on their own.
The costs of the orphanage are met through the Kumbeshwar Kids membership scheme and the sale of KTS products. If you would like to help by becoming a Worldwide Friend of Kumbeshwar Kids, please click on the link or Contact Us.
