Pallotine Children’s Homes are run by the Pallottine Fathers and Brothers in India, who are actively engaged in educational and developmental works in rural areas across nine states of India. With these Children’s Homes, we are able to reach out to many needy girls and boys from remote villages and ensure their elementary education in well-equipped residential homes.
The mission of Pallottine Children Homes in India is to share God’s love with the underprivileged children by providing for their basic needs like food, clothing, shelter, medical care and value education.
We envision a total and integral development of the deprived and marginalized children of the Pallottine Missions.
Pallottine Children’s Homes are run by the Pallottine Fathers and Brothers in India who are actively engaged in educational and developmental works in rural areas of nine states of India. In 1951, Pallottine missionaries from the Heart of Jesus Province, Germany, namely Rev. Fr. Francis Werner Hunold, Rev. Fr. Lorenz Sheu and Rev. Fr. Strittmatter, came to India and started the Indian Mission in Raipur of Chhattisgarh State. The Raipur mission of the Pallottines gradually grew and the number of Indian Pallottines increased in India. Later, as a result of growing number of Indian Pallottines, three provinces were divided and they are: Assumption (ABVM) Province, Bangalore, Kristu Jyothi Province, Raipur, and Prabhu Prakash Province, Nagpur. Currently, there are about 400 Fathers and Brothers working in about 120 mission stations engaging in pastoral activities in under developed mission parishes with economically backward communities. Pallottine Children Homes is one of our socio-charitable venture in these mission parishes.
Pallottine Fathers through these children homes are able to reach out to many needy girls and boys from remote villages and ensure their elementary education in well-equipped residential homes. The rural children are enrolled in schools closer to children’s homes. Shelter, nutritional food, value education, medical care, sports and games, recreational activities and cultural programmes in Children’s Homes help girls and boys get a holistic personality growth and development. The skilled staff and social workers provide both boys and girls with ongoing guidance and counselling to improve their academic performance and teach them how to face challenges in life. Apparently, the girls and boys after their years of training move out from these homes with confidence to stand on their own feet, enjoy a stable life and get a respectful status in their society.
Presently, we are able to run 18 Children’s homes with a strength of nearly 1600 inmates across different states of India with the financial support of the Mission Secretariat, Heart of Jesus Province, Germany, Kinder Missionswerk, Aachen, and the local donors. The financial help from these donors give these girls and boys a bright future which they would be otherwise deprived of normally. Hence, these donors with collaboration from Pallottine Fathers and Brothers bring life changing experiences to the inmates of Pallottine Children Homes.
We would like to place on record all our dear friends like you without whom this noble venture is impossible. We are indeed indebted to the Mission Secretariat, Heart of Jesus Province, Germany and their benefactors, Kinder Missionswerk, Aachen and their donors, all our well wishers and associates in India and abroad for your generous support. In fact, your sacrifices do bring smiles on to so many children’s faces, assuring them of a dignified life and future. These children at our Homes and all the Pallottine Fathers and Brothers gratefully remember you all in their daily prayers.
We wish to rest assure you that your generous contributions through our Pallottine Children’s Homes are reaching out to the least, last and the lost of the society. Your great help and our continual commitment to serve these marginalized children are creating noticeable livelihood opportunities for these children who deserve a dignified life. May the good Lord bless you all for your great support and continue to bless us in our effort to serve these children through the Pallottine Children’s Home.
