History

The Hemalata Orphanages were founded by a private initiative in lndia, which receives no support from the state. lt is heavily dependent on help from abroad. They provide 300 children a fulltime care.

  • 1950: WEBBS MEMORTAL was founded.
  • 1970: ZION HOME in Surutupalli (60 km away from Madras) was founded. 80 children get a fulltime care.
  • From 1998 onwards 4 buildings were constructed for practical short time training in the trades Electro, Fitter, Mechanic, Computer and Tailoring for youth after school (16 years plus).
    The intention is: As long as the children are small give them roots (food, shelter, schooling) and when they have grown up, give them wings (vocational training, to make them fit for life)
  • 2010: Foundation of the ZION TECHNICAL INSTITUTE, combining all training centers in one association. lt is totally financed and supported by the “Protestant Parish of Baiersdorf” (Germany)
