While studying in New Zealand, Andrea from South India met New Zealander Jason Cobb. With a common interest in India and serving disadvantaged children, a friendship formed. With the blessing of both families Jason & Andrea married in New Zealand in 1998.
In 2003, responding to an opportunity to bring new life to an unused School, Jason, Andrea and their 2 year old Daughter Christleigh moved to Jeypore, Odisha where they started their work together. In 2005 The Life Foundation was established as a Registered Society geared towards enabling disadvantaged children, families & communities experience a more abundant life. Their second daughter, Jessie was born in Odisha in 2005.
From their Life Centre base in Jeypore, Jason, Andrea, their family and team of national staff are working to develop communities of abundant life amongst those whom they are serving.
