Miracle Manna Children’s Home in Jakkur, Bangalore, is a loving home to 22 children – orphaned by their natural parents at different ages- and embraced by the large hearts of Shivaji and Prema. Their purpose- to raise children with loving care, provide a good education and instil great values.
The couple began their unplanned journey, desiring to welcome their 2nd child by adoption. Despite their own economic background being modest – Shivaji was a driver and Prema a BPO staffer– they took in children in distress, orphaned by poor parents, some neglected and oppressed – and over the last 10 years it has the strength of today.
Recalling the journey say Sivaji and Prema : “Our children home that we started on 2010 was our dream for past 15 years.We wanted to change the poor kids incomplete life into a complete life so they have a bright future. All the children who came to us were from poor background with single or no parents, no relatives to take care of them.Many were in bad condition – without cleanliness, having infection, not getting proper food. We give them good care, love and affection to change each child personally. To change a child’s trauma of neglect takes a year of continuous care. We are striving hard to make each and every child should imbibe good values and have a good education and bring out their character as a good citizen”.
