"97% of your donation will go directly
to the orphanage!"
Orphan Children of India is a non-profit organization that was started in California, USA. It began with the goal of helping the poor and orphaned children of India who have nobody to help them. It all started when Father Angelos Sebastian took a group of people from Huntington Beach, California to India for a few weeks. They were shocked by the living conditions of the people, especially the poor children on the streets. This experience made a profound and lasting impact on their lives. They came back to the States with a determination to do something in order to ensure that the children have the decent lives that they deserve. The group came together with Father Angelos; they prayed together, and began dreaming together, of establishing a facility in Rajasthan, which would take in poor and orphan children from the streets and broken homes. They would care for them, educate them and thus help them have a future.
How wonderful it is to realize that with a little help and a few sacrifices, we can make a huge difference and positive impact in the life of someone who otherwise would never have a chance in life. We have a dedicated and generous team of Board members who meet every month to review and discuss the progress of the project and make decisions. The parishioners of St. Bonaventure have particularly been very generous in helping to realize this dream. We hope and pray that more and more people of good will may come forward to become part of this noble cause and together we can make a difference in our world.
