Joyville Children's Home was set up in 1992 for street children gathered from the streets or markets. The children run away from their families for various reasons, a common factor being abuse – physical, mental and sexual. The Salvation Army has taken the responsibility to ‘joyfully’ help these children with a holistic program that focuses on each child so their innate potential and personal skills can be developed. The children range from young children to teenagers. It is a residential home in a rural area so the children can learn agricultural skills such as raising pigs, tending rice crops, fish ponds, etc. to give them some chance of making a living in the future.
