Care&Share educates over 6000 children below the poverty level in Vijayawada (Andhra Pradesh, INDIA). Care&Share helps street children, children of sex workers, physically challenged kids and shelters abandoned newborns and assists juveniles detained in the Observation Home (local reformatory). Since 1997 we have built and run 9 schools in different slums and in our children's villages. Since 1995, Care&Share has rescued over 1000 street children, 165 infants, HIV+ and AIDS orphans of Vijayawada.
From 2000 the rescued children have been sheltered in our 27 acre "Daddy's Home" Village in the countryside. Due to the dramatic increase of AIDS the new 40 acre campus "Butterfly Hill" is under construction for the many new orphans and HIV+ children in need of a home. We cook over 5000 meals a day for our kids in Daddy's Home and Butterfly Hill, and for those in the rest of our facilities scattered around the city and slums. We also have a daily milk program for 500 kindergarten children since year 2000. Most of these children have free medical visits, worm tablets and access to Care&Share vaccination programs.
