“Poverty is the worst form of violence,” declared Mahatma Gandhi. And seeing children malnourished, under-educated, and neglected on the streets is heartbreaking. SOFKIN was founded on the conviction that this does not need to be these children’s fate. “This is something we can change,” promised Chaya Pamula, SOFKIN’s founder.
In this short, 10-minute video, Rising Above: The SOFKIN Story, you’ll see how the fate of SOFKIN’s children is indeed being changed. The nutritious meals, daily exercise, interfaith prayer and meditation, and first rate education are important ingredients. But the difference, the uniqueness, and the heart of SOFKIN is the loving care children receive as members of the SOFKIN family.
Sadly, the need is growing. When this video was made a few years ago, SOFKIN was serving 33 children. (The two homes mentioned are actually one home with 2 floors – one for boys and one for girls.) Today, 54 children are crowded into the home.
