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.

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!

First time I've visited Cherish home was 10 years ago and since then I admire all the children who are aspiring and working hard to accomplish good careers. I myself and infact many others have seen the good results of their hard work in their conduct, studies, music, sports, cultural activities etc. Some of these kids stood first and achieved top ranks in their schools and colleges, many kids learned and can play musical instruments, almost everyone is good at sports and cultural activities.

The founder and caretaker of Cherish home is very simple man with great vision and goals for the kids. His commitment in raising these children is inspiring to them and people outside.

Over the years I've learned many things from these children and I'm inspired in many ways. I humbly request others to visit Cherish home once and provide support in your best ability for the betterment of the children future and careers.

I'm privileged and sincerely thankful to God in knowing these kids and the caretaker.

Very well organised and caring place for the children. I have never seen anyone feeling that they are orphans, during my personal visits. I have always found them happy and confident. They have been taken care with good education, nourishment, teaching them how to depend on God. They have been empowered with different skills in addition to their studies. He has been doing a great job overall with a great burden and passion which God has laid on him.

I had the privilege to know about Cherish team through a regular donor of Cherish in Sydney, Australia. In August 2016, along with my supportive husband, Vivek Jogunoori, I personally visited Cherish to know the team and their work, as part of our Mission India project from Pendle Hill Baptist Church (PHBC), Sydney, Australia. We were bowled over by the love, discipline and bonding of Cherish children. Adorable children and a highly-dedicated father figure personified in David Subramaniam. The joy you enjoy in the time spent with Cherish Home is immeasurable.
We, eleven of us from Mission India team, PHBC visited Cherish home on 5th October 2016. What a beautiful blessed day it was! We all worshiped together, listened to the anointed sermon from Pastor Guy Johnston, PHBC, played games and lunched as one bonded family. We were all moved in our Spirit and every minute of the day was a blessing for all of us. We didn’t want to leave at all. Cherish is a blessing for our own Jogunoori family too. After Christmas, on 29th December, we all, my sons, daughter in law, my husband, brother in law, niece and nephew spent beautiful campfire dinner with Cherish family. Now, cherish is very much part of our own and church family.
David Subramaniam’s dedication is outstanding. Proper Faith will produce proper works. Cherish Foundation is one of the most beautiful stories of Faith found in the children and above all, David Subramaniam is truly "living to his Call" from our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Protecting children with safe, functional home and facilities.
Ensure a bright future with proper schooling, higher education and advanced learning.
Raising children in the nurture of the Lord.
Each of the children are so different but what a blessing each one is.
Every one of our Cherish children are just as precious in God's sight.

Isaiah 1:17 Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed, Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.

Few relationship are so close and special that we do not remember how long we are been a part of it. Since few years I am associated with Cherish. From long time I wanted to get associated with an NGO where I can play some small role and help the needy people. I came across Cherish one fine day, visited Cherish few times, met the children, felt really happy and realized somewhere the sense of responsibility that I have towards them. the Org is small hence need more help. My satisfaction that I could personally get associated with Cherish encouraged me to take my next step and I decided to take the responsibility of a child's monthly sponsorship and helping in their school needs once a year. I know my contribution in not too big. But I want to share this hoping that someone would get inspire and feel the happiness that I feel every month when I fulfill my responsibility. I think we should play our part when people like David sir has contributed whole life towards Cherish. Of course we cant do what David Sir is doing,but we can help him by helping those children.

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.

One Fine day i got some information from one of my friend that they had visited an orphanage(almost 30 kids present) and spent some time with the kids, which really changed the way, we look at life. They have so little still no complains, full cooperation between them and zeal to do something better in life. As per as our concern we have good families, great parents, opportunities still we complain, we fight, etc... Lots more to learn in life... I thought, and i requested my friend to plan one more visit, as i want to visit this place and do some donation, First time i have just donated Rs 2500 (not in the form of cash, but brought some rice, dal, and other daily consumables for the kids and care takers). We visited cherish orphanage and it was really great feeling, i felt so lucky for all that i have in my life, got from my parents, at the same time felt guilty that we don't even think much for those who are under privileged, thought this is not enough, i should keep coming here & donate something within my capacity! There was a guy Mr. David taking complete responsibility of the kids, absolutely great personality, what a man! By listening his complete story, I felt God is present in some form to care these kids! he is really a inspirational guy. Also he had some good friends who do regularly help him. So that's it After some time again we have planned a visited CHERISH. This time i have donated Rs 4500(rice, dal and other daily consumables). i felt everyone has at least should have some moral responsibility to visit such places and share some time with the special kids. I know very well my donations are very less, still am planning to regularize it and do as much as i can. "Visiting CHERISH and spending some time was absolutely a great experience"

This Charitable organization is definitely one of the most active organizations doing charitable work in the field of taking care of orphans and poor children in the community. There are children who actively go to school, take care of their neighbourhood and are active in religious activity including conducting service. Its one of the best run charities that I have seen in and around the city. It is definitely a very big contender for the top rated awards for 2012. All the best to Cherish Foundation.
