Dayavu Home – Kannivadi
Dayavu Home was the first Bethania Kids home founded in 1987 for both girls and boys. However, recent government regulations require boys and girls to be housed separately, necessitating moving the boys to Bethel Home in Kodaikanal while keeping the girls at Dayavu Home. After the end of the school year in June 2015 the girls moved to Shalom Home in Kodaikanal and the 36 boys from Bethel Home will move to Dayavu Home.
After 28 years, the Dayavu Home needs some tender loving care with electrical improvements, a fence around the property, painting and a residence home for the new staff. A recent kitchen addition and two new wells were recently completed. With the end of a 3-year drought and the new wells, the beautiful garden ambience is being restored.
