The Orphanage

 

ASHAH ORPHANAGE

The orphanage is located in a rented house managed by a nanny, to liven up everyday life and to provide a favourable climate for harmonious development. She prepares meals, looks after the house, does the washing and ensure medical follow up if need be.
She offers guidance to the children of school age by helping them with their homework. The latter must also help with household chores when their school work allows. They are in private schools, a tremendous asset to insure a future in a country that is a major tourism destination.
