Goodwill Children’s Home, Tamilnadu, India.
Global Dimensions to BVS
Bure Valley School has been a sponsor of a Goodwill Children’s Home in Tamilnadu, India, for over 30 years. We regularly receive updates from Clare, the house we support, with photographs, letters and drawings from the children. They always send us cards to celebrate Easter and Christmas and we send them cards to celebrate their significant events such as the Tamil festival of Deepavali in November and the Pongal festival in January.
Goodwill Children’s Homes provide care and education for destitute children in Southern India, giving severely disadvantaged children the opportunity to change their lives and those of their families.
We would like to do more to support the Goodwill Children’s Homes as we know that some of the children there remain unsponsored. One easy way to raise money is by collecting old stamps – please just cut them off the envelopes with approximately 1cm of border and send in to Ms Fox.
