Start of Day Care Centre at Besant Nagar

Near to the IID office in Besant Nagar was a slum called “Thideernagar”; a Day Care Centre was started in a thatched shed in 1980 for the poor children of this slum, supported by Inter-Mission for many years. Jochen and Johshy Tewes personally supervised the centre as long as the office was in Besant Nagar. The shed had to be rebuilt several times after fires or floods destroying it. The Centre is still functioning today, now with the help of donors from England and within India.
