Once a child is in our care, our approach is to begin by providing a home to meet the child's basic needs - a hygienic living space, nutritious meals and physical safety.

On this foundation, we build a nurturing community of counsellors, caregivers and peers to facilitate deep emotional healing.

We then combine these supportive frameworks with education.

In making sense of the world through learning, the children make sense of their place in it. Psychologically, this cements their self-esteem. Pragmatically, it prepares them for gainful employment.

We work tirelessly to ensure that at the end of their residency, each young adult has the mental, physical and social strength to surmount the cycle of abject poverty.

We further encourage former COL residents to become changemakers. As such, Several children raised in the COL family have returned to volunteer or find employment with the centre. Many others, who are successful individuals today, remain faithful donors to the organisation. This sense of community catalyses the alleviation of poverty and ensures that each measure is sustainable.

We have had the privilege to form lasting relationships with some of our early and consistent supporters. Their stories express the vision, the work and the love with which we operate everyday.

Four decades ago, my later mother met Abraham and Rose Joseph on a trip to India. At that time, Channels of Love was a nascent operation. The Joseph’s would welcome orphaned and abandoned children into their home. Taken by the Josephs' vision and commitment to help these children, my mother and I became staunch supporters of the cause. Over the years, we continue to see the formidable difference this organisation makes to lives of thousands of children in need.

As an early supporter of Channels of Love, I witnessed the dire need for a home and network such as this decades ago. Driving through the poverty-stricken streets of rural North Karnataka in the 1980’s we realised that there were few facilities to assist orphaned and vulnerable children from violence or exploitation. Abraham and Rose Joseph, the Founders of Channels of Love, became the first to establish medical clinics, clean water supply chains and educational facilities for these disadvantaged communities. We continue to see their work grow and transform the lives of children today.
