Charis Foundation charitable trust founded in 2004 with a mission to care for and provide shelter to the poor and orphaned children lacking food, love and affection with no hope of a good future in a bustling Metropolitan like Chennai. It is located 15 km away from the Central railway station.
The results of the surveys conducted on the living conditions of the abandoned children pointed to the children wasting their meagre money earned from the hard labor in illicit pleasures, leading them to delinquency. These facts inspired Charis Foundation to start Petra house and Astha home.
Charis Foundation has given a new aroma to their living. It has started with a noble cause and gesture towards the affected parts of society. We have 40 inmates in our home. Out of them 13 girls and the rest boys. Five of them study for professional course, and the rest in English and Tamil medium schools.
