There are to 47 children we support including children at a nearby HIV center (outreach project).
For educational reasons, the children are divided into 2 groups. The older girls and younger children live at our Secunderabad Home and the older boys remain at Joy Home Orphanage. These children have been brought into the Orphanage either by the charity or members of the public over a period of 8 years. Each child has been registered with the local authorities and is listed as in the care of
‘Joy Home for Children’. These children are not for adoption and will remain part of the Joy Home family.
From 2004 till 2008, Joy Home for Children was privately funded by founder Dr. Nirmala Jyothi, her husband Dr. K. Karunakara Rao and their family and friends. As the number of orphaned children increased and with spiralling costs, it became essential to generate extra funding to provide the long term security for the children.
In March 2009, Joy Home website was launched followed by British Registration in August 2009. Now Joy Home for Children Orphanage is now offering everyone the opportunity to make a real difference.
We have 3 acres of land with plenty of space for development. Once developed, the land will provide an income as well as fresh fruit and vegetables for the home.
