CHERISH Home has been a blessing to many children giving joy, hope, happiness and future to many lives. I personally visited the orphange many times; learned life lessons from these kids. David anna (brother) and his family have put all their efforts and dedicated their life to run this orphange. All the children are disciplined, well behaved, studious, blessed with talents such as playing musical instruments, sports, etc. I wish and pray God that they have a permanent home to run the orphange. I was really blessed by visiting Cherish Home.

CHERISH Foundation is a family where each and every kid is taken utmost care for all forms of his life!

I have visited the foundation as volunteer multiple times!

Kids are very good in education!
Kids are highly ambitious!
Elder kids are highly passionate to achieve their goals!

David sir, father for CHERISH kids is highly determined and dedicated!
He is man of values and deeply nurtures the same in kids!

It is a very good caring environment, where elder kids help the younger ones in all possible ways!

Professionally the foundation is very transparent, every single penny donated and spend has a clear record!

I recommend a must visit to CHERISH Foundation, an awesome place to spend some quality time with some brilliant kids!


Thanks

Many people ask what did you get from cherish?

I have been associated with CHERISH since 8 years now & actively 3 to 4 years!

CHERISH is my family and I believe words wouldn't be enough to describe the bonding I have with David sir, CHERISH & all kids!

Cherish has actually cleansed the way I approach life!

Interacting with David Sir and then kids at cherish is a great moment for me!
David Sir along with his family and friends made CHERISH a great place!

Since the time, I started interacting actively with kids, I sensed the following:

1) Kids are highly inspired by David Sir's determination & vision full thoughts!

2) Believe me in each and every kid, I have observed a sense of responsibility towards CHERISH as a family!

3) CHERISH is everything for these kids!

I always pray to god, it should make more people like David Sir, who break the barriers of the normal life cycle and do something beyond normalcy!

Most of my friends, colleagues and family relations (including me) fear and probably never be able to do or achieve what David Sir and his family has already done!

I have been trying since long to do something for my country and society!

Finally GOD blessed me when I first came to cherish way back in 2009 and 2010!

I feel very much happy, lucky and blessed to be part of cherish!

Spending time with kids over games and activities are the best moments of my life; there is nothing parallel to this!

Making them play and keeping the thrill alive, I really enjoy a lot!

I strongly believe, kids too equally enjoy it!

Every time when I & David sir discuss, we discuss a lot about kids, there future plans, and cherish; the deep sense of seriousness, care and tension David Sir has towards each kid is remarkable!

I must say all the kids are specially blessed to have David Sir as father!

I strongly believe that, one fine day David Sir would grow as a gigantic banyan tree nurturing all the kids, and in due course of time slowly kids would become the supporting branches, making the foundation stronger and allowing the tree to grow bigger and better!

God bless you all!

Hi,
I had been associated with CHERISH Foundation for the time I was in Hyderabad. When I met children at CHERISH, I felt that Mr. David was trying his best to give a quality life to each and every child at CHERISH HOME. All the kids at CHERISH are provided with good education, nice sporting facilities. At the same time they are being groomed for Extra Curricular activities as well. I have spent several quality fun-filled moments with children and its feels great to work for such a wonderful cause. I would encourage others to help in anyway they can help CHERISH grow because I believe they are doing great with their job i.e. providing quality life to lovely and talented children over there and making them responsible to lead a successful life.

Hope to see them soon! :)

I have been associated with Mr.David and Cherish Foundation for the past few years. I found this organization doing well with sincere, committed and honest approach. My interactions with the children in CHERISH made me feel that genuine work is being exhibited for bringing up the homeless children.

I was touched by Mr.David's perseverance in making the children educated in good schools. The children are well disciplined and cultured.

Sincere Wishes to CHERISH for their future endeavours.

Warm Regards,
Ganesh

In 2011 I had the privilege of spending time with the staff and children of the Cherish Foundation. The Cherish Foundation is a Christian Orphanage that is preparing young children to take their place in the new Indian Economy. They do this by providing a nurturing environment based on the Love of Christ and through a focus on education. These Children are loved, looked after and provided the adult attention that they require to mature into mature caring adults.

I am in awe of how much David is able to do with the funds that he has. I urge anyone reading this review to consider providing some support to Cherish, these children are worthy of your contribution and will benefit enormously from your gift.

I was in India on an international assignment, a friend of mine from CORE LOGICS first introduced me to the 35 overwhelmingly loving caring happy and well cared for children. I spent nearly every sunday of the next four months with them. I want everyone who reads this to know that this foundation is well managed, and the children are extremely well cared for. You can be confident that your donation will be well spent. I urge anyone who happens to be in Hyderabad to call them, spend a day with them. You will keep memories that will warm you on those cold nights when you are alone. I don't know what else to say. I spent easily 16 days with them, they never fought, the never teased each other, they treated all of the others as siblings. They are simply amazing and you will be blessed if you have a chance to meet them.

This charity/orphanage is run on a shoestring by a humble and truly dedicated man with vision. There are 35 children of various ages in the orphanage and their aim is to give each child a good start and a real chance in life. The children's stories are all different but very sad.

It was a pleasure on my last visit to India to see the children in their own surroundings, and to see how the orphanage functions. The children are extremely polite, well behaved, and courteous.

The aim is that each child when it leaves the orphanage will have a profession to follow in life.

Cherish Foundation is a wonderful home for children run by David Subramanyam, a very humble man who has dedicated his life to helping those that come into his care. All the children are happy, well-behaved and polite, studious and grateful for all they have (which is so little!). What these children need more than anything, in my opinion, is a home of their own. They are living in a run-down property that is being lent to them free of charge but they could be evicted at short notice. I can't even imagine how they could manage if that were to happen. The idea terrifies me when I think of the dangers that the children could be exposed to. I know Cherish extremely well and all I can say is that these children need to stay together as a family under David's care so that they can continue to thrive. A new home would ideally be twice as large so that another 35 children could benefit from this incredibly loving and caring environment. The children pray daily for a home of their own and my dream is to start a non-profit for this purpose. If anyone reading this would be willing to help, David can give you my contact information and I'll keep you informed.

I had visited cherish foundations old age home in 2011 on behalf of an organization called YUVA. We had come to celebrate children's day with the inmates of the orphanage. We were really happy to see that the place was well managed, children were healthy and happy and were getting good education and facilities. We enjoyed a lot along with the children and it was really a wonderful experience.

In a country like India, with so many children in need, it is easy for angels to get lost...Cherish is a haven for children in need of a family, love, shelter, food, education and hope. David is a man who has dedicated his life to helping these kids, and they love him unconditionally. I am blessed to know this man and will continue to support his cause even when I leave this country.
