Supporting Abundant Life Care Orphan Home

The Variety International Children’s Fund is pleased to support this home for orphans and operated by Abundant Life Care India, (ALC) was founded in 2001. The ALC Home grew out of the vastly needed help for the ever increasing number of unwanted or improperly cared for children in India. This includes children who were imprisoned by traffickers. ALC-India is comprised mainly of volunteers that assist in reaching, training, rescuing and the placement of unwanted or improperly cared for children throughout South India and Asia.

ALC participates in training workers to reach out to these poor children in the slums and villages of India. A great deal of ALC’s efforts are directed at educating the public and local community at large about the needs of these poor neglected kids and the difficulties of living below poverty situations. ALC’s goal is to rescue these children from the effects of poverty and to educate their families, the local leaders and the community people, causing the cycle to end!
