Our First Children’s Home
Victory House, El Shaddai’s first child care home started in the year 1997 in a rented home in Vagator – Goa, at the hands of Mr. Duncan Watkinson. In 2000, we managed to buy a run down house in Saligao and renovated to shift Victory House there. It is now a home filled with fun and activities for roughly 60 children between the age of 8-12 years .
They attend different schools and love participating in extracurricular activities such as Football matches, Dog & the ball, Lagori games, Captain Ball etc. at Victory House.

Rainbow House is our third home, situated in Assagao together with Shekinah House and House of Kathleen. In the year 1999 – 2000, Andreas Toscano, a farmer from Germany had seen the plight of the underprivileged girl children in India and wanted to set up a home for the girls to give them a brighter future. He mortgaged his farm and bought a house for EL Shaddai to set up a home for girls.
Thanks to Mr. Toscano’s compassion, this home is a safe heaven for roughly 50 girls, aged between 8 – 16 years old.
The children participate in various activities such as talent shows, games, dramas, dances, speeches, and monologues at Rainbow House.

In Memory of Kathleen Moreman
House of Kathleen was our fourth home, situated in Assagao together with Shekinah House, House of Norma & Rainbow House. This house was donated by Ted Moreman. After 53 years of happy and content marriage, the death of his wife, Kathleen, left an indescribable void in Ted’s life who purchased a permanent home in April 2002 for the underprivileged children of India. It now has around 50 of our youngest children aged from 2 to 7; both boys and girls.
We conduct different types of fun-filled activities for the children such as dramas, musical chairs, blind man’s buff, drawing, and colouring etc
Visiting house of Kathleeen and meeting the innocent, young children will always give you a joyful experience. You can truly see the love of God in their eyes.

Meaning: Born in the Spring
House of Verna is a new home started in Spring of 2017 with the help of many helping hands. El Shaddai has been working in South Goa for many years. We came across many underprivileged children and orphans who needed care and protection. After a great struggle, we managed to acquire a home and renovated it. This is will be the home for roughly 70 -75 children who live in the slums and streets of South Goa.
This home has been started for the purpose of rescuing children of sex workers in and around the slums of Verna to give them a new hope. We have started the home with 35 children and we are looking for more sponsors to support us with this project.
