The centre hosts:

Orphaned children
Children collected from the streets

Protection from abuse
Protection from exploitation and cruelty
Live a normal life
Grow up in freedom

The home therefore endeavours to provide basic needs including:-
Food
Water
Shelter
Medical Attention
Formal Education

Freely express their opinions
Participate fully in plays and recreation
The right to information
Proper spiritual development
Abundant life
 
Children need to be encouraged so that they can grow into responsible citizens.
