Children of Faith Board US Welcomes New Members

The US Board of Children of Faith welcomed four new board members recently. These individuals have supported the Children’s Home over the past few years and now join us in an “official” capacity. The US Board supports the home in many ways, offering financial planning support, policy advice and of course fundraising, so we can continue transforming the lives of young people through our work in India.

Get better acquainted with our new board members…..
