The CheerFutureLand project began almost 10 years ago to help disadvantaged boys by creating Boys Home, in the Chennai area. Since its opening, about 50 children have had the opportunity to live together in a protected environment, to receive an education and to learn vocational skills that prepare them for higher education or to enter the workforce.
As Sonia remembers:
"My father had a passion for helping children, especially in educating them and giving them a chance for a better future"
n 2016, we reinforced the CheerFutureLand project by laying the foundations for a second house in a village near Boys Home.
It is dedicated to providing 50 disadvantaged young girls with a safe, protected environment where they live together, the Girls Home.
The CheerFutureRoseLand project was completed in January 2018.
The building includes residences, dining facilities, gardens, a playground, and areas for recreation and sports, and extra-curricular activities like drawing, dancing, music, gardening and more. Vocational training in disciplines such as tailoring and computer skills, in addition to education in core subjects (mathematics, science, English, etc.) are also part of the daily routine. For safety and security, CCTV cameras have been installed, and there are security personnel and female supervisors.
