Gap Year Opportunities

We always request prayer for the good of the the children’s Homes at Nambikkai Illam, near Chennai, India. We also mention that we would be happy to utilise students or young volunteers at the Homes on a fixed term basis. We are aware that opportunities for service are sought during Gap years and the like and we are seeking such a placement. Tasks could include accompanying children to and from school, helping with homework, conducting nightly prayer times, and a host of practical jobs to better the infrastructure of the Homes.

UK Trustees are visiting the Homes in July, August and from October through to March and would be able to help in the induction process. Anyone interested should contact Tessa Sayers, our Chairperson, at


About Faith Welfare Trust

FWT works with young people in India: to provide a safe home and loving Christian environment for deprived children; and to provide access to education and suitable further training to maximise their opportunity to earn a living wage and escape the poverty trap. FWT is managed in the UK by a board of trustees comprising Alistair Coomer, Joy Rafferty-Smith, Tessa and Chris Sayers, Elsie and Brian Tugwell, Rachel and John Fisher and Helen Webster. They are assisted in India by the Nambikkai Illam Trust, based in Chennai, which manages the two childrenʼs homes at nearby Vengadu and Navalur villages and provides support to Faith Public School at Rajahmundry, about 350 miles further North.
