The Story Behind Care & Share
Carol Faison & Noel Harper
Care & Share was born in 1991, when Carol Faison, an American living in Venice, Italy, decided to reach out to poor kids in an Orphanage at Manginapudi in Andhra Pradesh on the Bay of Bengal. Her brother, Tony Rigopoulos, a student of Indology has just returned from a research and study trip to India and had shared with his family pictures of the Orphanage that he visited. The family decided to each sponsor a child and Carol offered to contact the Priest in charge of the Orphanage and to help coordinate the work. Within weeks, friends and relatives generously responded to Carol’s appeal and every child living in the Orphanage in Manginapudi, were sponsored.

You know what the great thing about babies is? They are like little bundles of hope. Like the future in a basket.
Since 2001, Vijayawada has had no orphanage. In a place where poverty is so widespread and so many parents cannot take care of their own children, this is a grave lacuna. Scores of babies are abandoned every year.
