Spread across 11 acres on the banks of the Athi River, the Amrita Watoto Boma Children’s Home cares for 160 children by providing food, an English-medium education and healthcare in a loving environment. The children also take weekly yoga classes, and are taught creative arts, sewing and permaculture. The home is run with the assistance of four teachers, two cooks, a gardener and our volunteers. The children are selected from the neighboring villages after site visits by our volunteers to identify truly needy children whose parents or guardians cannot afford to provide for their basic needs.
The school library is kept open every Saturday for two hours for children from neighboring villages to read and enjoy our collection of books on various topics ranging from science, geography, philosophy, world languages, and general knowledge.
Amma offers us the possibility to connect online with her on a daily basis. During these livestreams, we can meditate with Amma, chant bhajans (devotional singing) and hear spiritual teachings.
