Our main aim is to provide a “home away from home” where children feel loved and valued take responsibility for those younger than themselves as elder brother and elder sister.

Madam lives with the children and tries to provide by her presence a sense of stability and care so the children feel secure and cared for.

As one child said – Madam loves the dogs, Madam loves the cows, Madam loves the birds, Madam loves the fish and Madam loves me.We try our best to make it true.
