Vision For Mission - HELPING  the worlds CHILDREN..........ONE CHILD at a time
 
About Us
 
Since the Tsunami which devasted Southern India on Boxing day 2004 and our first visit to administer relief aid to those who survived the tragedy, we have raised enough money to build a kitchen extension, a water tower complete with taps and the erection of 2 new dormitories at the Gopal Rao orphanage in Mahaboobnager.
 
We also set up a self help group on March 1st 2006 for 64 ladies, buying sewing machines, cottons, material and paying the annual wages for a seamstress to teach the ladies to sew and make items for sale on local markets as a means of becoming self sufficient.....This group has now grown to 800 ladies.
These ladies also run a credit bank system set up with finance from VFM in February 2008 and now 152 ladies have their own small business thanks to loans from the bank.
 
On 22nd February 2006 Vision For Mission was invited to open an old folk's orphanage in Achumpet, without this home the old folk's who have no living relatives would be living rough on the streets and they would not survive. We pay the homes annual costs each year.
 
We have also adopted the Gopal Rao orphanage and in the past seven years have seen over 600 children ( educated at the orphanage with
V F M finance ) leave and go into higher education, many are in college and some are now in university.
In September of 2009.....34 of our orphans gained free places into a  private school which is one step away from a great future. ( amazing )
 
V F M have also been blessed by adopting a christian school for a group of Banjara ( hill gypsy's ) children supplying them with school uniforms, books, musical instruments and teaching aids.....The Banjara children are amongst the poorest in India and live in homes ( on waste ground ) made from cardboard box's, plastic bags, banana and palm leaves etc.
 
During our trip in October/November of 2010
V F M have opened five new village schools in the Mahaboobnagar area, a new dormitory at the Gopal Rao orphanage and the installation of electricity and a water pump at a small orphanage for forty children in the village of Kullur near tenali in eastern Andhra Pradesh....all paid for by friends and supporters of ...

Committments for 2012/13
We have agreed to finance three small ladies groups so they can buy sewing machines, material and cottons to make sari's to sell on the local markets. We have also promised to finance a village to make leaf plates which will also bring in much needed income.
A further promise to buy 200,00 fish fingers (baby fish) and food to stock a village lake will after 12 months also help the people to make an income and also feed themselves
