Kulpahar Kids Home & Christian School
Kulpahar is located in northern India in the Mahoba State not far from Nepal. Many years ago two American Sisters, Leah and Molly, visited the area and were saddened by the poverty and the number of orphans they saw. The sisters started on faith and established the Kulpahar Kid’s Home & Christian School. They take in orphans, and house, feed, and educate them. Many of the graduates have gone on to Universities. The school is growing, yet they can only take on so many students due to funding limits.
