ORPHAN CRISIS IN INDIA

India has the largest child population in the world. Unfortunately, newest research shows that approximately 4% of India’s child population are orphans. That’s 20 million children with no family, a number that is projected to increase by 2021. 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 India 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 early 2 million children born per year do not live to the age of 5. These issues, combined with an unbalanced caste system make orphaned children in India most at risk.

DESTINY VILLAGE CHILDREN’S HOME

Destiny Village is located in a rural part of India, where substance abuse, poverty and forced child labor are prevalent. Destiny Village began in a church building with very few children in 2004. In 2005, this situation led a group of Americans to construct a 14,000 square foot home for orphaned children that now provides a safe refuge for Indian kids. The home takes special care to every child that comes into their care, with many children coming from harsh circumstances. The children There are so many more children in need. Please consider supporting this home so that many more may find refuge under their care. 

 

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.
