Background : The children who are the beneficiaries in the children’s home and hostel come from village of the state of Sikkim, Assam, Jharkhand, district of Darjeeling and Jalpaiguri. The children of the homes and hostel run by the India Evangelistic Crusade belong to communities and people groups who survive below financial poverty level. Most of their parents / relatives work as coolies in forests and villages, as tea garden labourers and as mere cultivators, earning meager income not enough to feed even one person for a day. The children’s social standing is that, they are fully orphan whose father and mother have both died, and those who are made orphans due to their parents having left each other and are morally misplaced. There are children in the Homes / Hostels who have a mother and no father as the father has died or has left the mother for someone else. There are children whose mother have died during child-birth and are left with their fathers who due to extreme poverty and lack of job are unable to take care of their children.
