Children of Faith has been transforming lives of children in India for 20 years. Help us Continue this Legacy.

In 2003, Rosie and Anand Thandu were living and working in California. Feeling blessed by their opportunities, they decided to help others in Anand’s home state of Andhra Pradesh. They began COF by providing financial support from afar to 12 children.

Rosie and Anand soon realized that more was needed to truly impact the children’s lives. So, in early 2004, they built a small home where the children could get the support they needed to succeed in school. Anand’s brother, Johnson, moved in and oversaw the operation of this Home; they called it “Children of Faith”.

Receiving better nourishment, care, and support with their studies, these children thrived. Not long after the small home was established, a nearby children’s home closed its doors, leaving 50 children with nowhere to go. Touched by this need and inspired by the success of their small home, Rosie and Anand felt called to take in the additional children. Realizing the magnitude of their mission, they made the decision to relocate back to India to better oversee the Children of Faith home, which quickly grew to over 100 children.

From humble beginnings, Children of Faith has built a legacy, impacting the lives of over 1000 young people so far. Many graduates have pursued careers in nursing, engineering, business, technology, and beyond, while others have begun raising families or pursuing opportunities abroad.
