■"PHE object of the Institution is to provide for the fatherless children of onr Seamen and
*■ Marines a useful and religious education, according to the principles of the Church of
England, and to support and clothe them as far as the Funds will permit.
Numbers of such children are found in our Naval Ports, surrounded by all that is distressing
in povert> and vicious in morals.
In the Female Orphan Home there are 130 girls entirely dependent on the funds of the
charity (eligible for admission between the ages of seven and eleven years) who are maintained,
clothed, and educated -. there are in addition 23 girls partially maintained by Greenwich Hospital
Funds and 4 under the Royal Patriotic Fund.
The girls are under the guidance of a careful matron and subject to a course of industrial train-
ing to qualify them for domestic service. A few girls will join the Secondary School for further
teaching.
There are 44 boys (to be increased to 50), maintained from the Funds of the Home, at Swanley
in Kent.
The Directors depend on voluntary contributions for funds to carry on the Institution. The
number of children they can receive depends upon the amount of their Funds. They therefore
confidently appeal to the charitable for help in carrying on and extending these works of
usefuluess, and rescuing from want and misery the fatherless children of those who have served
their country, and who, in many cases, whilst thus engaged, have lost their lives in war, or by
storm, shipwreck or disease.
Visitors are earnestly invited to view the Institution, which is open daily for inspection
from 11 a.m. till 3 p.m., Saturdays excepted.
