Now We’re Cooking With Gas

This facility is home to around 100 children, 60 boys and 40 girls, in the Himalayan hill town of Darjeeling. Before we started sponsoring propane at the home, most of the food for the 100 children was cooked on small fires outside the facility in highly unfavorable high mountain conditions. We took the time to ask the home director what would improve the cooking situation at the orphanage. We learned that each tank costs roughly $25, and we have since provided a sponsorship of 6 tanks at a cost of $150 quarterly. This small sponsorship provides these children and staff with a basic necessity most of us couldn’t imagine living without. This is a simple example of utilizing the power of our weekly feature platform.
