DAYSPRING HOME

Dayspring Childrens Home opened in 2007 on 6 acres of land located in Chitoor, a rural area outside of  Virudhungar.  30 children between the ages of 3 and 18 are in our care.  Some came to live in our care  because they have been affected or infected by HIV/AIDS, some came to us because they where vulnerable and living in poverty.  Blossom Trust is responsible for the management and operations of the home, which includes, but is not limited to: medical expenses, educational needs, nutritious meals, clothes and social support. We rely on private donations to cover operating expenses – roughly USD $11,500 per year.

For the Dayspring grounds upkeep and facility improvements we rely on volunteer labor and funding.

Dayspring Farm was established in 2002 to provide a sustainable source of food for the children. The farm is located next to Dayspring Home on the 3 of the 6 acres of land and is maintained by the local farmer and volunteers who tend to the livestock and crops.

The farm grows onion, eggplants (aubergines), spinach, gooseberry , guava and mango. We have livestock that consist of cows, goats and chickens. The farm is maintained by a farmer and short-term international volunteers, and also the children learn and participate in the harvest and care of the livestock.

 

The farms aim to be environmentally focused and organic, instead of using only pesticides and chemical fertilizer, we use three different kinds of local organic mixtures called panchagavya, asola and geevamirtham.
