Roger and Pearl Higgins 
founded Alpha India Foundation in 1999. They live in Corfe Mullen in Dorset. 

They visit India once a year carefully balancing that cost, against the essential direct accountability and oversight.



Sureh and Nimi Kumar  
are a husband and wife team, supervising the safe running of the whole campus, and being legally 'in loco parentis' for the children in our care.

Suresh is the house father and is absolutely dedicated to the work of Alpha India Foundation as his life calling.


His wife Nimi is a qualified teacher and wholeheartedly shares Suresh’s love and dedication to each child. They have two daughters of their own, who are growing up equally as part of the extended family.

Suresh and Nimi are supported by Debbie, who takes care of the children in Sunshine Corner. She is equally committed to the work of Alpha India Foundation.


AIF is a registered charity both in the UK (1999) and in Chennai, S.India (2001),
