“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.
