Pastor Pfeiffer Home
The Pastor Pfeiffer Home is one of the service projects of the YWCA. It was started in March 1959 and founded by Pastor Helmut Pfeiffer, to provide a home for girls who are orphans, children of single parents and destitute children. The Home provides a clean and healthy environment, emotional security, education, wholesome nutritious food, life coping skills, vocational training and leisure time activities. While growing up in the Home the standards and values of the children change for the better. The age limit for admission is from 5 years to 11 years.
The atmosphere of systematic life, with ample time of play and study, has helped many of the little ones to enjoy themselves, and then to study with the guidance and coaching of qualified Tuition Teachers. Those who do not do well in studies are counselled to take up job oriented vocational training courses. Education and awareness on social issues are given top priority here. Medical examination of the children is done by a doctor every month. Children are given guidance to be career oriented and become self sufficient in life. When they get married they are given a cash gift from the YWCA.
