At our Delhi Orphans’ Village, we are setting a new standard for the quality of orphan care. The Orphans’ Village was opened in 2015 and was made possible by the ongoing support from our generous donors. Currently, the village is able to support nearly 300 orphaned children and provide safe housing for over 40 widowed women. Our teams are dedicated to removing children from a dangerous life on the streets and helping them get settled in a loving environment full of care, joy and compassion.
0.21 About four years ago, we appealed to you, the supporters of Orphan in Need, and asked you to join us on a brave new vision. That was a vision to build the world’s very first purpose-built village dedicated entirely to nurturing and caring for some of the world’s poorest orphan children. That vision is now a reality.
0.58 Orphans in Need are not interested in the fact that most of these children will be happy just to have a roof over their head or a piece of bread in their hand. No. We wanted to show the world that if you take orphan children from the street, children who have not just lost their Father but, in this case, a Mother too. Then they, too, have the potential to achieve anything.
1.23 And that’s the key ingredient, that special ingredient, that brings with it the joy, the blessings, the Baraka, that this whole project was about from the start. Because today, together, we’re going to meet the children, we’re going to meet our children.
1.48 All these children have lost not one, but both parents, and you give them a real chance to succeed, just as we want for our own children. So whether that’s the chance to study for a better future, to share a meal as part of a loving family, to have a safe place to sleep at night or simply the chance that all children should have, to play and have some fun.
2.27 The Orphans in Need village is not just about providing a house but about giving these children a real home.
2.37 We have the land and we have the plans. You believed and supported Orphans in Need when all of this was nothing more than an architect’s drawing and look at what we’ve achieved.

Committing to the future
We give our orphans the best chance for a better future by providing them access to medicine and education.
Education is at the core of many of our worldwide projects and is just as important in the Orphans Village. We aim to ensure all our children have access to a first-class education and will learn key life skills that will help them succeed in life. We ensure our orphans can grow their confidence and go on to provide greater contributions to their local communities and aid in their nation’s prosperity.
Health and nutrition make a huge difference in the quality of a child’s life. We ensure our orphan children receive a varied, nutritious diet that helps provide energy for learning and play. We understand that a child’s ability to thrive later in life will depend on their relationship with food when they are young and endeavour to help educate all our children to eat healthily.
