As any organization grows, so must the leadership and stewardship of all the resources. We have 575 most important "resources" in the form of formerly orphaned children and we wanted to share with you our organization growth basics as recently discussed by our Indian-led CCH Strategic Planning team:
Holistic restoration of India’s orphaned children for lives of dignity, purpose and transformation of their communities.
Caring for orphaned children through family-style homes, education and discipleship, empowering future leaders to build healthy communities.
CCH Core Values
Dignity - claiming God-sent identity for the orphaned child
Worship - learning a lifestyle of worship and relationship with Jesus
Service - leading their communities in the future
Holistic Restoration - from an orphaned spirit to an adopted child of the King
Lakshmi is from the Nelaturu CCH girls home
Lakshmi's CCH Story:
Lakshmi is 12 years old and has been in the Nelaturu CCH home for 5 years. Lakshmi’s family is from the same home village as the pastor. Lakshmi's father died when she was four years old. Her mother is a day laborer and was having trouble caring for Lakshmi by herself. When Laksmi did not perform well in school, her mother would beat her, a tragically common parental response in this part of the world.
The Nelaturu pastor heard about Lakshmi's circumstances. When he met with her mother, they agreed that that CCH's model of orphan care could be a good opportunity for Lakshmi to get a second chance at school and a second chance at having a family life that is more healthy and hopeful. Worldwide, "orphan" is defined as "fatherless," which is Biblical and throughout most of history, accurate, with no protection or provision without a father.
Now that Lakshmi is with CCH she says her life has totally changed. Lakshmi is now 1st rank in her class and has her sights firmly set on becoming a pediatrician so she can help children just like herself. This is not an uncommon motivation for CCH children when they dream of their future profession and explain why they want to become the doctor, the teacher, the policewoman, the government official.
In four years, Laksmi will be attending University if she has a sponsorship to help her through. Please consider helping Lakshmi and the many CCH children just like her on the brink of their future dreams with only a few steps to go.
