SKGA holds 8 childrenshomes/cottages distributed in the three compounds situated in different locations near eachother. All together they house more than 150 children. Children are cared for in fully self-contained independent cottages and cared for by a dedicated house mother, and vegetarian food cooked 3 times a day by a cook in every cottage. The age of the children in each cottage varies between 5-20years, in this way the older children will be taking care of the younger children, also taking care of chores to assist the housemother and cook. The housemother and the children in the cottages support one another with doing their homework. The philosophy of the independent cottages, is to create a stimulating invironment simular to a family, that gives the children a caring, safe, healthy, stabile childhood. When the child is ready the boys will move to the boyshome in Alamelupuram, maintaining the close bond with their former cottages.

Krebs Lange Cottage (1984), Action Children Aid (ACA) Cottage (2002). Donated through Action Childrens Aid, Denmark.
