Children are the gift of God given to the society. They are born to live and not to strive. As the population increases day by day in India, numbers of children are starved of parenthood, love and care. It is our concern to care for these tiny buds and care for them in love and affection. OHI establishes homes, and works with local schools throughout the country with a special focus on the need children.

Life Care Centres provide care for the children in a local community. Children enrolled in LCC are encouraged to come to the local centres after their school hours. They are given refreshments and daily evening meal. Mostly these children come from abusive homes where their developments are impaired. Competent and decimated teachers provide help with children’s daily academic needs. Children are taught good hygienic habits. LCC is a great way to provide nurture and care to the children in their neighborhood.
