Sisters of the Poor
education & RELIGION
With your support, our children prosper from an enriched education including regularly updated textbooks and religious workbooks.
After the convent was blessed and opened on June 2013, we welcomed 29 children to share the space with us at the convent. Then in 2014, 11 more kids joined so the number rose to 40. At that time, the dormitory became too small to accommodate every one, but with the help of some friends, we were blessed to build a bigger dormitory. The bigger space in the dormitory enabled us to receive 44 new kids in 2015 so now we have a total of 84 children at the center. The children receive three meals a day and two snacks in between the meals.
With your gracious support, we are able to provide nutritious meals for the children of our orphanage.
The children follow a regular school schedule. After waking up in the morning, the matron helps them to get ready for morning prayers after which they go for breakfast. After that they get their books and pencils and start school at 8:30 am. They have a break at 10:30 when they also eat their snack. Classes resume at 11:00 am for another hour and thirty minutes. In between classes they get short breaks to go to the bathroom. Lunch is served at 12:30 pm and after lunch the small ones have some time to enjoy a nap. In the afternoon hours children are engaged in games, and other extra curriculum activities.
All children attend school. Currently we have a preschool and grade one. The number for boys and girls is almost even. At 4:00pm they get another snack ---- from around 5:00 pm they take their shower in and some free time --- dinner is served at 6:00pm followed by recreation and a time for evening prayers before they go to bed.
clothing & shoes
Each child is given new, clean clothing and shoes twice a year. Something as simple as a new pair of shoes can do wonders for our children's life.
