Vision Kids – Boys Home:
Vision kids is a home for the orphans we have 20 orphans under our care at our campus in Ampapuram. Through this orphanage many kids have an opportunity to come up in their lives and achieve their goals. They are nurtured with the word of God and grow in good discipline. This orphanage is meeting the physical and spiritual needs of the uncared orphans, semi orphans and street children. Most of the children’s parents died with HIV/AIDS.
We believe and hope that VISION KIDS will provide a great opportunity for the orphans to come up in their lives and achieve their goals.

This building has wide rooms to accommodate 40 children with a large dining hall, Office room, guest room, waiting room and a large play ground.

Sponsorship: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s):
1. Can US$ 50 per month actually make a difference?
You would be amazed at the impact of a mere $ 50 per month, given for a child in India! Your gift of $ 50 per month will help provide full-time care, food, and housing, provide education,and basic medical care etc. for your Godchild.
2. Can I correspond with my child?
Yes. Although correspondence by mail is extremely slow, sponsors are welcome and encouraged to write to their children. You just need to send us your mail and we will forward it to your Godchild. Many of our children are very young, In that case we will send you a picture of the child, a work of art, handprints, and/or a general report on his or her well-being.
3. By completing a pledge form, am I committing myself to sponsor my child indefinitely?
While we hope that you will continue supporting your child for as long as possible, we understand that your financial circumstances may change. If you need to discontinue your sponsorship for any reason, we would simply ask that you give us 2-3 months notice so we will have ample time to find a new sponsor for your child.
4. Is it possible that my child would ever leave the sponsorship program?
Yes occasionally a missing child may be reunited with his or her family. In the above cases, it would be wonderful if you would consider sponsoring another child so that we can continue to receive children in need.
5. May I visit my Godchild in India?
Yes! You are always welcome to visit your Godchild!
6. May I send a gift to my Godchild?
Small gifts such as stickers, drawings, books, hair bands, photos and cards may be sent to your Godchild through the association each time we go and visit them.
