Nurturing and empowering children to become successful and responsible citizens.
Mr Ruby Nakka grew up in a children's home in Andhra Pradesh for 12 years and was helped for 15 years in total. It was his childhood desire to help children like the way he was helped.
Mr. Ruby Nakka was living in the United States with his family that consisted of two adopted girls. It was his girls who reminded him and his wife about the children in need of help in India. It was they who inspired him and his wife to forgo their well paid jobs in the healthcare industry to start The Hope House. He in turn inspired two of his best friends (Manoah and Thomas) to join him and one among the two (Mr. Thomas) has relocated to India now.

 Integrated Children’s Home for Girls
Mary (name changed) is a 2 year old little girl referred to the Hope House by Child Welfare Committee (CWC) of Vellore district with severe physical deformities. She couldn’t sit nor walk but only rolls on the floor for her mobility. She was unable to verbalize. We have been taking Mary to several different departments (Orthopedics, ENT, Dental, Developmental Pediatrics and Physiotherapy etc) for the past one and half years. Now she is able to walk using orthotics and a tri-wheel walker. She has quite a significant vocabulary where she can express her needs and communicate easily. She is growing up like a normal child but she still has a long way to go to become functional and independent.
