Founding Sponsor -

wonderful place for orphans in Myanmar.

The Garden Home is on a beautiful
twenty seven acres,
nicely situated on a river, with gardens, many fruit trees,
nice play areas, ponds, and more. We have dedicated
Garden Home to be just for children who have no mother and father, and no place
We have made good progress in further developing Garden
Home, and making it a model
with self-sustaining resources. Most orphanages in the country have
poor nutrition, little place for the children to play, and struggle
for basic needs. Garden Home however is a blessed home in
many ways. Our children are healthy, doing well in school (with the three
top students in their school), have many nutritional resources, loving
staff, and a good place for their home. At harvest times, GH also
has food to share with homes that are struggling.
Thanks to the kindness of donors like you,
in 2007 we completed a second
home for twenty orphans, improved the main road, added a new staff
house, improved gardens and agricultural development, planted more
fruit trees, and added needed furnishings.
In 2008 we have made further progress, with more
children added and many improvements in the grounds such as
expanding the fish ponds, adding a bigger water tower and more. We
also hosted more children from other orphanages, for numerous
programs throughout the year.
Garden Home now has over 25 dairy
cows and fifty goats. Children can have milk every
which no other orphanage we know of has. The rice harvests
from the land can provide enough for the
children and staff for the year.
A bamboo cooking house was built, and
Dec. '08 we just received funds to build a
permanent separate cooking kitchen and store house which will cost
$3500. The current kitchen which is part of the dinning hall,
is used for serving and preparation, but a separate cooking
area is needed which can use wood fire.
