Imagine you are 6 years old, live in a village mud hut with no sanitation and your only clothes are second-hand, dirty and torn? Your dad died a while ago from malaria. You are often hungry and rarely go to school because your mother works in the fields all day and takes you with her.

TREADs child development centres offer hope for children like this, providing care before and after school each day. The children arrive early in the morning for breakfast, learn to wash and do their hair, are given school uniform and have outfits made for them twice a year. They learn to take a pride in their appearance, have nutritional food each day and value the importance of education. TREAD staff supervise and encourage them with their school work and they learn to sing, dance and play. There are four TREAD child development centres:

  • Trinity Day Care Centre, Kudunure, Andhra Pradesh
  • Sarah Child Development Centre, Podia, Orissa
  • Hannah Child Development Centre, Dubatota
  • David Child Development Centre, Girkinpali
