Economical and Essential


Help provide a scooter for an orphanage in India. Covid disrupted public transportation, and scooters are an economical way to get around. The caregivers use scooters to buy supplies, food, run errands and for emergencies like taking a child to the doctor. Read more below.

“Athipet Children’s Home is situated in a hilly slope called Jawadhu Hills. Transportation is very poor in this area. There is no bus service to this village. That makes it difficult for us to reach the town for emergencies and for buying provisions, vegetables and other needs of the children.” — Sister Sargunam

The photo (above) shows the scooter WC donors provided for Pandaravedu Orphanage last year. This year, four additional children’s homes have requested help to buy scooters.

  • Athipet Tribal Girls’ Home caring for 120 girls needs $1.759 for their scooter.
  • Nirmala Matha Home caring for 280 girls needs $1,759 for a scooter.
  • St. Elizabeth’s Orphanage caring for 67 children needs only $684 to buy their scooter (because it’s partially funded).
  • Shanthi Nilayam, caring for 45 boys affected by HIV needs $2,011 for their scooter.

You can give any amount either recurring or one time.
