Faith was founded in 2005 in the heart of Rajasthan in the pink city of Jaipur. Faith brings hope to the lives of children living in extreme adversity, orphaned and affected by HIV/AIDS under the loving care of Smriti Singh who has made caring for children in need her life’s work.

 

The journey started with educational support for children living in railway station slums in Jaipur. Confronted with incidences of rejection and stigma for children with HIV it became apparent that direct help was needed so that children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS could live with dignity.

 

The children’s home started with two children and one caretaker. Over the years Smriti took in more children and currently has 50+ children supported by committed caregivers and volunteers that include a doctor, a nurse and many tutors. These children are thriving in a way that no one could have imagined when the first child walked through the door. The children are between three and eighteen years and they are all attending regular schools and excel in their studies.

 

They aim for equality for all the children living with them by ensuring the provision of education, food, shelter, security, growth, and development through intervention and quality care. Survival, health, nutrition, development, education, protection and participation are the undeniable rights of every child at Faith.

Faith offers them regular, well-balanced meals, proper care and timely treatment, thereby enhancing their confidence. All the children have the same right to develop their potential in all situations.  Faith provides services that promote the health, growth and development of the children and encourages adoption and re-integration and rehabilitation of children into society. Faith provides long-term quality residential care to the most deprived orphaned children.  Faith brings a ray of hope to the lives of children living with HIV/AIDS by providing full care & Support. Faith’s vision is to empower the future of the children to live a normal life and most of all, be happy and secure.
