Child of Mine

Here's a bit more about Child of Mine:

- Child of Mine is a Canadian charity that partners with two children's homes in North India. We provide financial support for every child from the day they arrive at the homes until they complete their post-secondary education.
Our mission is to come alongside these homes in a way that aligns with their vision of raising the next generation of leaders to love and serve India.
Orphaned and destitute children arrive at the homes as young as six years old and are nurtured in a unique family environment, where they find security, belonging, and love.
Basic needs, such as food and shelter, are provided, relieving children of concerns about where their next meal will come from or where they will sleep. Instead, they receive the gift of a childhood where they can play, attend school, dream about a bright future, and pursue their dreams through post-secondary education.
The dedicated staff teams typically care for approximately two hundred children at a time. Many graduates who have left the homes still consider these unique communities their family and continue to give back.
We're proud to say that among the many graduates of the homes are teachers, engineers, nurses, chartered accountants, architects, and more. These success stories reflect the positive impact that the Homes and Child of Mine have had on the lives of children, enabling them to break free from the cycle of poverty and develop into leaders who love and serve India.

- The homes were established in 1982 and 1982 and are both located in the Himalayas of North India.

- There are an average of around 200 children in the care of the homes at any one time, ranging in age from the young age of 6 up until they to complete their post-secondary studies.

- Typically, one or two groups from Canada visit the homes each year to foster personal connections, essential as COM and the homes operate as an international family.

- COM has around 235 supporting individuals, families, and businesses that partner monthly. And many more one-time personal and corporate donors.

- COM financially supports the children and staff at the homes for food, shelter, clothing, and education. We also significantly support both campuses with the construction and repair of facilities. Most recently, COM financed the construction of a new boys' dorm at one of the homes (see more at We also support the amazing staff with fair living wages! 

- Orphaned and destitute children are brought to the homes by the Indian Social Welfare program and are admitted as space becomes available. Currently, the homes have 156 children in grades K-12 and 37 attending college or university.
