The Uluru Children’s home near the village of Kadapakkam in South India cares for a particularly vulnerable group of girls in the Indian community. Since 2003, the Home has housed about 30, mainly rural girls who have been orphaned or abandoned by destitute parents, at the home they are given the essentials of food, clothing and shelter – all in a safe and caring environment. The girls are given a permanent home and a whole new direction for the rest of their lives, but more importantly, they have access to health care and education, which are crucial in giving them life prospects they would otherwise be denied.
