Is it possible to spend one day with the children?
We really appreciate your desire to spend a special day with Shanthi Ashram’s children but we have to limit the number of visits in order to ensure the emotional stability of the children.

Therefore, we only accept visits from sponsors or former volunteers on these special occasions.

Can I offer a gift to the children?
It is possible to offer a gift under certain conditions to avoid possible jealousies among the children. We may not be able to tell him that it comes directly from you because not all the children are lucky to have a gift from their sponsors, but we will send you a picture of the child with the gift. Sometimes we will recommend you to get a gift that the child has chosen, a useful gift or one that can be shared with the other children.
Do they go to school?
Yes, we make sure that the children are enrolled in the best schools possible for them in Hyderabad. They are all in English Medium programs, as English is a strong social marker in India. They also have tuition in Shanthi Ashram every day to help with their homework.
