Boys' Town Fund

Boys' Town is an orphanage that is located outside of Agartala, India where 35 boys ranging from three to eighteen years old live. Since the orphanage's inception in 2000, The Holy Cross Providence of Northeast India Sisters have been taking care of boys who have lost their parents due to violent conflicts. Even though resources are limited, the boys have become a big family that supports one another with the help of the Sisters. Unfortunately financial barriers have created poor living conditions that undoubtedly have a negative physical and mental affect on all the boys. They are currently in need of funding to purchase plywood to support the boys' failing beds (which have needed for the last six years), hygiene products, and many more items to improve the dilapidated cabins and for some fun items such as movies.

Reaching or surpassing the goal could also help provide funding for those who are graduating from school and transitioning into living life on their own. Most young adults in India are very dependent on their parents for survival well into their twenties and beyond. These boys do not have this option so this truly is the last chance for many of them.

Five Stonehill College graduates are currently teaching at the Saint Andre School where the boys attend school and are fundraising for the orphanage in the hope of improving the conditions which they live in. Your generosity would greatly be appreciated and all proceeds will go directly towards benefiting the boys.
