Welcome to Indian Christian Mission Centre

ICMC was founded in 1988 by Dr. S. Jayaraj Krishnan, known as “Dr Jay” or "Pastor Jay". Raised as an orphan himself, Pastor Jay has devoted his life to the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of orphans in southern India.Growing from 12 orphans in 1988, ICMC has become one of the largest orphanages in India.


      "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is: to look after orphans and widows in their distress..."

James 1:27 NIV


       Mother Teresa said, "Why should a child die while I lived as I wished?"

The following statistics concluded the 7th All India Education Survey, 2002 reveal quite pertinent and thought-provoking issues.

  • In India, only 53% of habitation have a primary school.
  • In India, only 20% of habitation have a secondary school.
  • On an average an upper primary school is 3 km away in 22% of areas under habitations.
  • In nearly 60% of schools, there are less than two teachers to teach Classes I to V.
  • On an average, there are less than three teachers per primary school. They have to manage classes from I to V every day.
  • Dropout rates increase alarmingly in class III to V, its 50% for boys, 58% for girls.
  • 1 in 40, primary school in India is conducted in open spaces or tents.
  • More than 50 per cent of girls fail to enroll in school; those that do are likely to drop out by the age of 12.
  • 50% of Indian children aged 6-18 do not go to school

Keeping these disheartening figures in mind, one can undoubtedly conclude how difficult it is for a majority of children to gain access to education. An educated child is more likely to earn greater income, raise a family, have healthier children, participate in the socio-economic and political processes of the nation and manage a decent standard of living. Children are the harbingers of revolution.
If their energies and potentialities are tapped and channelised in the right direction, they can become the nation's most powerful and useful human resource. Education of children provides perhaps the single highest return on investment in a developing economy.

We, at ICMC, strongly believe that education is the most important tool to enable a child realise his/her full potential. Education motivates a child to think, question and judge independently by developing self-esteem in him/her. The child can thus imbibe decision-making skills, civic sense and values of citizenship and democracy.

Teaming up with ICMC, you can be partners of change and lend in an optimum and a much needed contribution for the education of a poor and a needy child. Thousands of children at ICMC have carved a niche for themselves by virtue of education. Those who graduated from ICMC are placed in coveted positions in the teaching/education, corporate, service, engineering and the armed forces sector. Specialattention is focused on girls' education which is another characteristic feature of the service we render.

A girl is taught to be self-reliant and education gives her a consolidated status in the society and places her good standing in the mainstream. The teaching progession is quite lucrative to girls so measures have been adopted to train them in this particulat field.

We take pride in saying that by God's abundant mercies, as many as 7200 students have been helped over the past 24 years. We wish toimpact more lives through your prayers and support in the coming years. We thank God for what He has done through ICMC in southern India since 1988 till date. All glory and praise goes to Him alone for the lives he has changed through ICMC.
