Estimated Cost: $3,000 - $3,400
Team Leader: Melinda Fowler
Melinda has been to orphanages in China twice and after leading two teams to India, she felt like she has found her calling. The mission at Hermon Children’s Home in Aizawl, India has become her passion. This home is in the state of Mizoram, in rural northeastern India. The children at this home are not adoptable, but they are very gifted academically, athletically, and very musically talented.
The mission at Hermon Children’s Home is to advocate for sponsorships for the children to get the best education, skills & training so that when they leave the orphanage, they can go out and be world-changers.
The goal of the December 2019 trip is to bring activities and mentors who will speak deeply into the hearts of the children who live at the children’s home we are committed to serving in Aizawl, India. Additionally, several support efforts were launched in 2018, and these efforts need advocates who will enter the story and return home to tell it.
Aizawl is the capital of the state of Mizoram in India. With a population of 293,416, it is the largest city in the state. It is also the center of administration containing all the important government offices, state assembly house, and civil secretariat. The population of Aizawl strongly reflects the different communities of ethnic Mizo people.
