SOUTH ASIA

ORPHAN CRISIS IN SOUTH ASIA

South Asia has the largest child population in the world. Unfortunately, the newest research shows that approximately 4% of this region’s child population are orphans. That is 20 million children with no family, projected to increase over the next decade. Orphaned children face extreme vulnerabilities, including sex trafficking, forced child labor, HIV/ AIDS, and substance abuse. Many children have lost their parents because of abandonment due to poverty, illness, and death.

Even children with families in this region face unimaginable hardships. Most do not attend school regularly as they are pressured to go to work and earn money for their families. Health is also a struggle as 2 million children born yearly do not live to see the age of 5. These issues and an unbalanced caste system make orphaned children in South Asia the most at risk.

ABOUT HOPE FOUNDATION KOLAR CHILDREN’S HOME

Kolar Children’s Home is a nonprofit organization that began serving four children who were abandoned in 2006. They provided them with shelter, clothing, food, and access to education. Since then, they have come across many children who have lost their parents, including those from single-parent homes who could no longer care for them, and children of parents who have been diagnosed with terminal illnesses.  Today, over 24 children are being served by Kolar Children’s Home.

Serving Orphans Worldwide travels to every orphanage we partner with to ensure needs are legitimate and 100% of funds distributed goes to the livelihood of the children.

PROMINENT ISSUES

Abandonment

Child abandonment has become an increased issue in this part of South Asia. These children are often abandoned because of financial issues, relational problems, disabilities, gender preferences, or simply unwanted.

Crime

It’s been reported by the State Crime Records Bureau (SCRB) that there is a 200% increase in reported crimes against children in this part of South Asia. Sexual assault tops this list.

CHILD LABOR

There are an estimated 17 million child laborers in this part of South Asia, the world’s highest number of working children. Many of these children end up as “street beggars” and “rag pickers.” These children are particularly vulnerable to assault and other forms of street violence.

WE BELIEVE

HOME

The facility is located in an urban setting. Fully equipped with dorms, bathrooms, a kitchen, and more, the children have space to roam and play.

HEALTH

The children have access to proper medical care and are always cared for when sick.  When a serious issue arises, they are taken to a hospital just 3 kilometers from the property. The children are served three daily nourishing meals: grains, dairy, vegetables, and protein.

FAITH

 Giving the children the opportunity to grow in their relationship is Christ is a priority at Kolar Children’s Home. The staff and children attend church every week, where the children are actively involved. The children participate in weekly devotions and Bible studies at home.

EDUCATION

All the school-aged children attend a private school. Their school campus is close enough to where most students can walk daily. Each child is provided with textbooks and other school supplies.
