We are very grateful for everyone who supports us in any possible way – without your honest help we wouldn’t be able to go so far and wouldn’t have had possibility to raise so many happy children since the beginning of WIDE Children’s Home! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
WE WANT TO SAY SPECIAL THANKS TO:
WIDE Support Netherlands
It is a foundation that was created in 2008 by Bart van den Ouden, Nienke Debats, Sandra Kuiters, Erik Bolks and Eva Cheung. These wonderful people gathered together and work with devotion to provide our home with permanent shelter! Today they still keep supporting us with necessary house maintenance.

It is an association from France that was born in July 2012 after some teachers and students from l’Ecole Plénitude (an art-therapy school) came back from 2 weeks trip in South India. During this time they met us and practiced evolutive art-therapy with our children. Meeting with them and spending time together was a very special moment for all of us! This visit to our home together with experience working with other benevolent adults in South India, set the background for them to establish an association for helping people in deepest need. Sylvie and Valéry Lamoure, Marie-Odile Brêthes and Catherine Vallée are the founding members of the association. Together with other colleagues they visited us 3 times between 2012 – 2015 and worked with our children in art-therapy.
Today the association supports us regularly for our basic needs (food, clothes, school and ect.). More about them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/289050127867031/?fref=ts
Heike Yamuna Kiefer and Yogeshwar
These two wonderful people from Switzerland made a difference for our sustainable future: they encouraged us to start Retreat Centre & Guest House to have our own constant support for children’s home and were first sponsors for this project! With the help of Yamuna and Yogeshwar we were able not only to supply our land with drinking water but, most important, we had courage and believe we can make it! Today we are happy to see that this project is in process (see more) and we believe one day we will have possibility to greet our first guests!
Today Yamuna is still supporting us: she paid the rent for the girls house in 2014 and 2015.
