About Child Haven International:

Child Haven International (CHI) was founded in 1985 to assist children and women in developing countries by providing them with not only food, education, health care, shelter and clothing, but also emotional and moral support.

CHI primarily offers these services at one of its 8 homes located in India (5), Bangladesh (1), Nepal (1), and Tibet (1).  As of June 2015, CHI reported serving a total of 921 children, 104 women, and 48 elderlies for the year.  In addition, CHI sponsored a literacy program for 30 children and 50 women, and a women’s program that has trained 80 females in tailoring and computer science.

The organization formed the SoyaCow Support Group (SSG) in 1988, and with funding from CIDA in 1992, purchased 6 SoyaCow machines, which efficiently produce soya milk and other soya products for CHI homes.  SSG also developed a cottage industry for economically-disadvantaged women with these machines. CHI reported that there are now 400 SoyaCow machines in India and it is currently being promoted in Africa.
