Boy’s Dormitory

The Boys’ Dormitory – an appeal

Why a Boy’s Dormitory?
Whilst the Uluru Children’s Home was originally intended to be for girls only, The East West Foundation soon found it much too difficult to separate siblings and not take boys in crisis situations. Whilst there is room for all in the present premises, the Government of Tamilnadu has ordered us to house the boys separately from the girls and outside the present compound – and thus this appeal.
