Nane-Home is located in the village of Khajuraho and is the third Childsrights home. It opened its doors in September 2012. Six boys and five girls between the ages of eight and fifteen live there. Also supported by Childsrights are twelve children who study internally at schools in the surroundings.
“Nane-Home” was named after it´s founder Christiane. Her friends call her Nane.
The children of Nane-Home are motherless without exception, and some are full orphans. Those who have a father, it´s like not having him at all because they are alcoholics or have problems with gambling and barely survive on their own. In one case a father told Christiane: “Take them, you can have them, I don´t want them”. He was referring to his three children who where interferring with his plan to remarry.
Christiane travels twice a year to India, totally for 8 months, in order to spend long periods of time with the kids. Mrs. Rangee and Mr. Mahesh are living 24 hours with the children and responsible for them in everyday matters. Another cook is providing a daily, fresh meal for lunch and dinner. Two private teacher are joining us to help the children with their homework. Mr.Mahesh is the responsible for organizing the staff and home and further he takes care of the “paper work”, in a country like India it is absolutely necessary to work with a local.

The education of children
None of the children has ever been to school until Childsrights took over their care and began to invest love in their futures. Since then, the Nane-Home children visit a private English school. In addition they get help with their homework every evening for one hour by two private teachers. Furthermore we try to teach them spanish language. This way the children grow up surrounded by three languages which helps with their fututre opportunities. Not leaving out artistic expression, which is very stimulant during childhood, and furthermore Manoj, Jyoti, Anjana and Khushboo, began in April 2014 to attend a music school nearby to learn to sing and play the Hindu table.
