We are happy to report that our Children’s Hope Center in Hyderabad, India, is nearing the end of its 5th school year since we began operation in 2010. 48 children rescued from child labor were enrolled in school this year — they studied their native Telugu and Hindi languages, English, math, science, social studies, and computer education.
