The Kalimpong Association (uk) Charitable Trust

Dr Graham's Homes, a co-educational institution in India, that has provided education and care to mainly impoverished and deprived Anglo-Indian children since 1900.

Founded 1985

  • Mission statement

    Dr. Graham’s Homes is a school and home set up in 1900 for orphaned and abandoned Anglo-Indian children in Kalimpong. Today the school caters for over 400 supported children and more than 1060 other children, where they are brought up to imbibe traditional and good values and receive a modern education. The uniqueness of Dr. Graham’s Homes is that children of all age groups are housed together in cottages where they grow up as a family, with the older children looking after the younger ones. There are 22 large cottages at the Homes which house the children as well as a lot of other educational and administrative infrastructure and accommodation for residential staff spread over about 140 acres.
    Since the school supports such a large number of supported children, its budget allows for no surplus, and it functions on a “non-profit” basis, and has in fact been eating into its limited reserves to keep the school going in an environment of increasing costs and rising wages.
