The David Ware Trust began it's journey in India over 10 years ago. In 2005 we began raising funds on a very small scale to help rescue women and children, who were enslaved in prostitution. We were overwhelmed by the response and amazed to see how the funding just began to come in. It was a privilege and joy to see 11 women released and rehabilitated, we began to realize the call of God on our lives to reach out, rescue and love the poor and needy. Since then, we have seen this tiny seed grow and flourish into the David Ware Trust.
Ms Jean's Feeding programme
In 2011 we began to partner with Ms Jean Jepegnanum. Ms Jean runs a number of camps that work alongside children of gypsy families. Their work includes daycare, education and health care. To date we have funded a feeding programme that feeds over 80 children daily.
In 2012 we began a partnership with MPKG orphanage, Vellore. MBKG homes 184 children and 15 mothers. We have facilitated various needs in the orphanage, including providing 46 fans, 170 school bags and funding for third level education for CMC College. We also offer a child sponsorship programme. For more information please feel free to contact us on the above contact link.
In 2015 we began a new partnership in India with The Leprosy Mission in Vellore. It came to our attention, having met with the director, Valsa , that there was a need for funding provision for food for 25 resident patients. In April 2015 we delivered our first donation of a months supply of food and we are delighted to continue to support and provide such on an ongoing basis. In addition we are in the process of funding a recreational programme, which will include a small farm and activities to assist daily rehabilitation.
Since the foundation of The David Ware Trust we have been actively funding education for young children of primary school age, up to young women of college age. We realise that education in just one family member can be the means of assisting a whole family. Candidates are recommended directly to the Trust and upon acceptance into the programme funding is provided for tuition/school fees and study materials as necessary. Without the support of the Trust many of these individuals would never have the opportunity to study and progress into full time, professional employment.
