Childs-In means “children inside”, ie: inside home and outside the abandonmennet and poverty that they suffered previously at the streets of India.. This name highlights our determination to protect and take care of them at Childs-In orphanage.
Childs-In started to be run by Childsrights two years after Ganga was opened. Initially Christiane didn´t have the intention to extend the girls’ home (Ganga), but when she got to know that the previous Childs-In management had decided to close this orphanage as they didn´t have enough funds to keep it running, she decided to take on the project and soon managed to find sponsors for the kids that made it possible to keep it running.
Thanks to this, the 14 children living at Childs-In didn´t have to go back to the street life and nowadays are supported by Childsrights.At the begining Childs-In home was a rented house. After a few years, in March 2012, the NGO I-India offered to Christiane the possibility that Childsrights kids live within their recently opened facilities, where they had a lot of free space. The kids really liked the change as at the new facilities there are great outdoors areas where they can play cricket!
THE KIDS’ RESIDENCE
Therefore, the facilities where Childs-In kids live nowadays are located in a town called Jhag-Village, 40 km away from Jaipur. These facilities are shared by Childsrights kids together with other 39 street kids supported by I-India. The site is based on flat-square space limited by four buildings at the corners: One of this buildings is the boys’ residence, another is the girls’ residence, and the other two are a school and a hospital. In total more, than 100 children live in Jhag-Village and aproximately 200 visit the school that I-India provides.
The day to day of the 14 Childsrights kids is funded entirely by their sponsors, and Christiane follows closely the growth and education of each of them.
