Welcome to India

This blog is intended to make a country that most Westerners find to be otherworldly not so much so. We enjoy sharing our experiences, noting our observations, highlighting our impressions and otherwise recounting our adventures in India while helping our blogwatchers to be vicariously closer to this grand country. Welcome to India.

10 Million People Impacted? Really? CCH in 2016 - "By the Numbers"

2 Directors (Sean & Paige) getting ready to leave India for good and leave CCH in the hands of the all-Indian staff.

5 – Years running of CCH Summer Camp (thanks to you – see below!)

12 – Indigenous CCH staff members overseeing the current ground operations

22 – Of 27 homes now have sponsorships replaced from the phase out of our organizational partner that began last summer.  A huge accomplishment for us as Directors.

27 – CCH “children” – now students –  in college now!

39 – CCH sponsors (individuals, families, groups) sponsoring 49 of our 75 homes.

100 – Average number of clicks on a Rickshaw Writer blog submission since early 2011 when Sean and Paige arrived to India.

137 – Rickshaw Writer blog submissions since our arrival.

250 – Dollars-per-month covers a CCH 5-child home’s food and school fees.

315 – CCH children sponsored for Summer Camp through social media.

595 – Total children in CCH now, in 75 church-based homes.

$7,875 – Raised for camp through social media, primarily Facebook, for this year’s CCH Summer Camp – 4 times what we ever have raised before.  This covers 315 of our 595 children!  Thank you, all of you!

10,000 – Projected children being served by CCH in 25 years.

10,000,000 – Estimated people impacted by CCH over the next 100 years, many generations changed by the holistic restoration of hundreds of (formerly) orphaned children.  The long-term view of one person's impact is impressive and hundreds of people's impact is almost unimaginable...
