New Life Children’s Home

New Life Children’s Home, Visakha Dt.
New Life Children’s Home started in 2007 with 200 children. All these children were street children, child laborers, beggars and orphans. It is expected that the number in two years will increase from 200 to more than 500 children.

Thenarala village men migrate to Orissa state for fishing leaving their families behind. The tsunami in 2004 killed many of them. Dozens of children lost their fathers. Twenty-one children joined the New Life Children’s Home from this village. There are many such children waiting to be accommodated, but we are unable to meet the demand.

50 children are being cared for in the home.

The Director of NASA, Christopher Premdas, had the vision to extend NASA’s area of operations to the adjacent districts which also have similar problems. For the purpose of legal and administrative convenience SHEBA, a sister organization to NASA, was started. SHEBA is registered under the Foreign Contributions Act, and the income tax exemption acts 12A and 80G.

SHEBA is running New Life Children’s Home in a rented building for 200 children. It is also running a school for them. To carry out the planned programs, SHEBA has purchased 6.5 acres of land in Visakhapatnam District and seeking to buy 3 more acres. SHEBA is responsible for meeting the legal compliances, reporting, accountability, administration and successful management of New Life Children’s Home
