Celebrating July 4th in India takes some creativity, but we still came up this was spread of America’s favorite festive treats.

We have now been in Thailand one month of our two-month stay and it’s been a refreshing breather from the intensity of Indian life. While we both agreed we would be ready to go back to India now, we still have over a month to make the best of it here in Bangkok where we are

With these kids, it’s about more than just a home!

NEW BLOG OF CCH KIDS Durga, of S.N. Padu, was our first featured child on our new CCH blog that will give a little more background to these kids.

VISION is what makes a program like Covenant Children’s Homes begin and grow. The Director of our organization, James, has a big vision for these CCH kids. Our hope is not just that these kids will get off the streets or out of the fields, but that they would grow and learn and dream, and become something great, a model for other children (and organizations like our’s) to follow. Doctors, Engineers, Pastors, Politicians - these are just some of the professions that we envision for these kids in the future. The investment for their education, part of the fundraising we do for CCH, is the key to this dream.
