In 1997 the young Pastor Gamaliel became concerned about children on the streets or at railway stations, begging. He opened a school in a rented house which soon reached nearly 50 pupils. But there were other children, some of them in unhealthy, low-lying areas subject to flooding the rainy season. He and his mother, Deevakarunamma, decided to take one of the rooms they were using as the school and take in 15 homeless children. It was hard to raise funds to feed them, but they persisted, until SalGO Assist began to find sponsors for the children. In 2002 the children moved into a new, purpose-built Home for 25 children. Many of those first residents, now with jobs and families of their own, will share this occasion with the present children in the two fine Homes that have replaced that little room where they ate and slept and played, and did their school homework for over three years. 16th January 1999 is the 20th Anniversary of the those first few children finding a new home.

We are a small charity with a big challenge - supporting work among the poor in the south Indian state of Andhra Pradesh (A.P.). with our Indian partners, SalGOERCO, maintain two orphanages, two schools, family and educational support, widows with children, and a small home for the elderly destitute. They also work with HIV/Aids families and landless communities.

Can you help?


Eight boys and girls entered the Children’s Homes in 2015 and nearly all now have a sponsor. Joseph and Kalyan, two of our youngest boys still need one and would love your support.

Could you be their sponsor?


Kalyan 2


Kaylan is very happy to staying in our Clifford Smith Home for boys. Many times he says "all the children are receiving letters, cards sometimes presents but I never received any......."  he prays for his own personal sponsor. 


Joseph 2


Joseph is a clever student who is very happy in Clifford Smith Home for boys. When the older children receive their letters and cards, Joseph asks the warden "when I receive letters from my sponsor. Please pray for new sponsors for who are in the waiting list for me".


Your support gives a child enough to eat, a safe place to live and an education, allowing them to grow and flourish in a safe environment and providing them with hope for the future.
