Based in Jaipur, India, I-India rescues homeless children and offers them a new life. This year’s charity event will be held Saturday, June 10th, to raise money during an auction. Marken is the official Logistics Sponsor for the event to facilitate the transport of auction items.
India has 6 permanent and 2 temporary open shelter homes for both boys and girls. When possible, and if in the child’s best interest, he or she will be repatriated to their family, or offered a shelter house as their new permanent home. During the year, these shelter homes provided residential care to 581 children. The team of full-time wardens, caregivers, cooks, teachers, hobby-teachers and a nurse collectively facilitate and foster a safe environment, a regular food regime, education, recreation and rest, and most importantly the feeling of being protected and empowered through new skills for these children.
