BR and the Hales family continue to support the Shalom Community Development Projects (refer www.shalomhomeindia.org)
Over the last 9 years, 68 children have received care and study assistance through the childrens home. The older boys originally taken in back in 2009 have completed their studies, gained employment, and now are living independently.
The program has started to focus more on helping children, and families in nearby villages. This year this has seen the establishment of new after-school tutoring programs in four villages, and the running of a medical camp in one of those villages.
