About Promisedland Orphanage
Support Promisedland - We're Making a Difference!
Promisedland Orphanage is a 501c3 non-profit Christian organization
started in 1997 by Rick and Radha White. When Rick first visited India
with his wife Radha, he was moved with compassion after seeing hundreds of
orphaned children wandering the streets lost and alone. At first the Whites
offered assistance to orphanages in India. However, in 1996 it became clear
that they were to open an orphanage of their own.
On November 10, 1997, Promisedland Orphanage opened its doors to abandoned
children. Today, there are thirty children living at two locations:
The Promisedland Orphanage in Coimbatore, India, and the Deborah Project, which
is a branch of the Promisedland ministry. The thirty children (and growing)
in the orphanages are taken care of by nine dedicated staff members. A pastor
and his wife run the Deborah Project and care for eight children. The other
seven staff members take care of the twenty-two children who are currently
living at the Promisedland Orphanage.
The orphanage is in two locations, one of which is on farmland. This location is
in need of a gate and wells ($750 to dig) for a sufficient water supply. We have
plans to develop the farmland into a productive farm to help feed the children
and provide additional income. The farm still needs cows ($150 each, for three),
goats ($25 each, for four), and chickens ($25 for a pair). Enclosures need to be
built for all of the animals: cow stalls, goat stalls, and chicken coops cost
$300 to build a piece. We also intend to cultivate the land and grow vegetables
and fruits to sell at the market. The land has coconut trees and room for other
