For most people, the thought of India conjures images of bright silk saris, the scent of curry, and the sounds of busy streets. It is a land known for its exotic blend of Asian and British influences, major world religions, and masterful architecture. But few realize this flavorful country is home to more AIDS orphans than any other country in the world. Because the government in India does not have a system set up to care for its 30 million orphans, the needs are great.
Because the Indian government does not provide for its orphans, many children are left to the streets or sold to the highest bidder.
The Boaz Project partners with Indian Christians who welcome the orphaned into their homes. By helping provide necessities like food and education, the ministry encourages these house parents and enables them to take even more children in off the streets. Instead, the children are raised in loving homes where Christ is known.

*CM Boys’ and Girls’ Homes serves vulnerable children in a Hindu region of India. As a result, the home has endured quite a bit of persecution, with the house father even being jailed for a few weeks because of his faith in Christ.
Despite this tremendous pressure, the house parents manage to create a warm and joyful environment for the children in their care. They run both a boys’ home and a girls’ home, but they do their best to foster one, loving family between them.
As of now, CM’s Boys’ Home is completely funded, but the Girls’ Home is 12% funded; they still need $620 per month. Would you be willing to make a monthly financial commitment toward that deficit? When you do, you’ll receive bi-monthly updates about the home, including current prayer requests.

Your support will mean the world to them!
The girls at HJ know how to have fun, too! They play games, enjoy outdoor adventures, and laugh at their house father’s silly antics.
As a result, most of the young ladies who age out of the home have embraced a faith in Christ, have received a good education, and go on to have happy marriages. Several attend nursing school, where they care for their patients with the same tender nurture they received from their house mother.
The Boaz Project’s work at HJ is completely funded.

*AE is a home where children are loved well, education is valued, and Jesus is honored. Many of the children at AE have artistic talent, whether that’s in dancing, singing, painting, or playing the guitar, and they often use these talents to lead worship at church. Each day begins and ends with family devotions and the children have numerous Bible verses memorized.
Most of the boys enjoy soccer, too!
The house father at AE works hard to let the children in his care know they are loved, help them get an education, and help them find their way when they age out of the home.
The Boaz Project’s work at AE is completely funded.
*BB is a large children’s home built on top of a church. The house father, a pastor, is a proud papa to all of the children living there, and he works hard to instill godly values and healthy disciplines in them. His family helps care for the children, as do some of the adults who grew up in the home.
Most of the children at BB enjoy school, and church is often the highlight of their week.
The Boaz Project’s work at BB is completely funded.
*BH is a home for orphaned boys, and it shares a campus with a seminary. With a passion for ministry, the house parents can’t help but instill a love of the gospel and for people in the boys in their care.
Many of the boys who grow up at BH become pastors and evangelists. Others work in computer science or accounting, but still serve their churches faithfully.
The Boaz Project’s work at BH is completely funded.
*JH welcomes vulnerable children into a loving, family environment where Christ’s love is shared. Most of the children in the home are older and enjoy crafting and singing. They are encouraged to work hard at school and to continue their education after secondary school.
The home is a safe haven for orphans in an area where their tribe is a minority and is often harassed. The house parents assure the children that everyone is made in the image of and for the delight of God.
