Christmas is the time for giving, consider making a donation or sending a gift from our Amazon India Wish List.


Giving the Gift of Shelter, Nourishment and Education to Transform Lives

When Niamusha arrived at Children of Faith seven years ago, she had low self-esteem, could not read or write, and was not very social. With the love and support of a safe home, in the years since she arrived, she has worked hard at her schoolwork and blossomed into a leader. Today, thanks to generous donors, Niamusha is in college and will pursue a future every child deserves.

Give by Checks or Mail

We are happy to accept donations via check mailed in.

Direct Bank Transfer

ACH is a safe and easy method of giving a recurring gift without any fees.

Corporate Matching

Your company may match donations you make to our non-profit.


Make a Commitment to Sponsor a Child

Every child in our shelter has a unique story to tell, but they all have the same basic needs. Through sponsorship and your ongoing support you can help us provide shelter, nourishment, healthcare, education, and clothing to a child in need. You can give security in an insecure world. Although one-time sponsorships are gladly accepted, consider making a commitment to one special child. You can sponsor your child until he or she becomes strong, capable, and independent.

COVID-19 Support Fund

In March the Government ordered all Orphanages and Children’s Homes such as ours to send our children back to their relatives. Now that many have lost whatever work they had and food prices are soaring these families need our help to feed and care for the children.

We Need Another Bus For Safe Transport

We have a bus and use it often, but it only holds half of our children. A bus provides the safest transportation on India’s congested roads. With a second bus we would be able to take all of the children on outings together around our community and to church.
