The Diptipur Boys Hostel (DBH) is a small hostel, which aims to provide a secure environment for the holistic support of boys.
The Hostel provides accommodation for the children from villages in the district of Odisha India. This allows them to continue their education, which would be limited if this provision were not available. Children spend term time in the hostel, returning home during holidays.
The hostel is working to provide for the children in many ways including:
- A safe, healthy, clean environment with the support of a caring staff.
- A supportive place where their schooling is strengthened through use of a study area, and staff encouragement.
- A holistic approach to their development including opportunities to contribute to the communities in which they live, through various development projects.
- Spiritual support, through prayer times, daily bible devotions and Christian services (Sunday School).
Education creates opportunities. Children who go to school have a better chance of getting a job, are more aware of health risks and can make meaningful decisions about their own lives based on a better understanding of the world in which they live. The DBH gives children the chance to gain that vital education. When you sponsor a child your money goes to the running of the hostel, to school fees and the basic needs of the children.
