Children Home Building Expanded
A dying mother handed over her son and said to us “Please take care of my son”. ACCEPT initially began as an organization to take care of the HIV/AIDS patients. We could not reject her pleading cry because no one wanted this small boy, who was also HIV positive. This occurrence was what started the ACCEPT Children Home even though we lost the first child last year. The earnest cry of the mother resulted in a home for more children. Beginning with one child, we now have 18 children ranging from five year to 19 years of age boys and girls. Many came here and some were brought here by others. We thank God for each child, they truly are the joy of ACCEPT. The children now regularly attend school. One of the young girls finished her 10th class and completed a computer training course. She is now undergoing nursing training at our centre. As the earlier facility was not sufficient for the children, we started the rebuilding of the home which was completed and opened on May 15th, 2010 in the presence of believers from different assemblies in Bangalore. Now the building can accommodate 30 children with a spacious hall for recreation, separate dormitories for boys and girls and a children’s dining room.This building also have two volunteers room that can accomadate 4 volunteers at a time.
