First Love International in India
First Love operates a children’s home in the Siliguri area of India. Our wonderful staff provides a loving Christian environment for over 50 boys and girls who would otherwise be living in hopeless situations. First Love provides for all of the children’s needs, just as you would as a parent – food, shelter, clothing, medical care, and educational expenses including school fees and uniforms.
One special thing about this home is that several of the children were formerly living in various brothels in India. Some of their mothers are still prostitutes. We have also taken in several widows with young children who are especially vulnerable to abuse or targets of human trafficking
Besides the children’s home, First Love also runs a hostel for older children. The laws in India prohibit children over 17 years old from staying in a children’s home. The hostel allows us to see the children through high school and college or career training to prepare them to live on their own as adults.
In addition to these homes, First Love is also involved in outreach programs to impoverished villages in the area. We assist with food, medical care, and school fees for those who cannot provide for themselves. We also host regular kids’ clubs and provide tutoring services in two slums.
