“Moriah Home & School” refers to a private school with an attached home for disadvantaged children.
Located in Guntur, India, the home and school began in 1999 under the Bible Faith Lutheran Church of India. BFLC India currently funds, oversees and provides for the needs of the “Moriah Children.”
The Moriah High School provides educational services to over 180+ economically disadvantaged children from Pre-Kindergarten through high school in the local community of Guntur. Many of these children are the first in their family to receive an opportunity for education.
The Moriah Home provides full-time care for 20+ children from less fortunate families who have lost one or both parents. Through the home, each child attends the school instead of having to work to support the family.
Many schools in India are what they call “commercial houses,” which are criticized for being more focused on profit than providing proper education. They are not education facilities, which creates a further divide for the poorer families that can’t afford a quality education. In poorer communities, it can be very difficult to get a good value for education. That’s why Moriah was founded.
100% of your donations received go directly to India to support the children’s needs.
To ensure the maximum benefit is received by the children, none of the nonprofit organization’s U.S. administration, travel, and miscellaneous expenses are funded by donor contributions. All Trustees, Directors, visitors and close supporters fund their own expenses with no salaries or compensation paid to anyone in the U.S. Rest assured that whatever level of contribution you can make will be put to good use.

Most Moriah School students come from disadvantaged homes and communities and they do not have access to expensive private schools. Moriah is a school that embraces diversity, welcoming students from all backgrounds.
The vision of Moriah School is for all students and staff to be proficient in reading, speaking and writing using only English, and all courses will be taught in English.
A new initiative is being developed by a group of U.S. English language teachers and tutors who seek to support listening, speaking, reading and writing skills of the students of Moriah School.
The U.S. friends of Moriah School will provide supplemental English Language Learning opportunities to enhance and enrich English language skills of students and staff.
Special technology will be used to enable:
These strategies will greatly assist Moriah’s teaching of English where resources are currently very limited.

There are many competing priorities around both the school and home, so we’re identifying only a few initiatives at a time. Each will make a big impact in the education and living conditions of these children.
