What and where is the NECH?
The North Eastern Children’s Home (NECH) in Manipur, North East India, was founded as an evangelical Christian home for orphans and children with no dependable parents.
They are looked after in a caring environment, educated at the North Eastern Children’s Academy until old enough for college. They are also taught often about the love of the Lord Jesus Christ.
