children to change the world

FROM HOPELESS TO CHILDREN LIVING & THRIVING

We focus on Creating a loving, stable environment.

Orphans are the children who most believe in the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, and the smallest act of caring. Once enrolled, our indigenous staff organize participants into mutual care groups of 60-100 children. For orphaned and isolated youth, the group becomes an extended family. Over the years, groups receive micro-grants and training to achieve sustainable success and well-being across every area of life.

Children are skilled for long-term success.

” Sachin hails from Hoskote, a rural village on the outskirts of the city of Bangalore. He came to Victory Children Home in July 2010 and had discontinued his studies as his mother could not afford the fee. He was the only child and lacked love from his extended family which pushed him into loneliness. His mother couldn’t take care of his education and hence had to drop out of school in high school. He was referred to ROP where he was given an to attend school and had a loving family around him to support. Sachin graduated in the year 2015. He moved out of the orphanage in 2015 and currently works as a manager in a corporate company. He thanks ROP for helping him realize his dream”.

Access to Education

Youth have resources to re-enroll/begin formal education, some attend college and beyond.

Yogesh is from Channagiri taluk in Davanagere District. He has a elder sister Tara who he loves very much. His parents could not afford both of their children’s education and hence discontinued him from school at the age of 7. Social workers during their regular visits came across this family and suggested them to enroll Yogesh into the program. Yogesh was welcomed into the home in June 2013 and since then has been a very fun loving and dedicated kid. 4 years have passed and he succeeds in everything. He is an inspiration to many younger kids at home and he always motivates, nurtures and loves everyone around him. He currently is studying and wishes to become a cricketer and play in grade 8 for the country.

MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER

Mark Jayakumar and Francina Mark

In 1990, when we started Rays of Peace if anyone had told us that 25 years later ROP will be triggering over 30 hardcore rural development work every month, impacting poverty, water, education, health, or that we will be creating first-time learners or will be working across 3 states on disaster relief and rehabilitation, our only reaction would have been disbelief. For an organization, working with the most neglected communities on their most ignored, un-noticed non-issues, growing on this path has been a humbling and beautiful journey. Just knowing that we made someone’s life a little better, made a little positive dent on how they look at their own worth and dignity, makes these two and half decades worthwhile. Now that we have our footprint in 8 villages across 3 states; a grid, a pipeline that we have laid, it’s also for a lot of new and established ideas. We hope our values and our work continue to resonate with you and it nudges you to get involved and take action. We will stay true to our core value of working for the basic needs, dignity, and being a voice to the voiceless and oppressed.
