ORPHAN CRISIS IN SOUTH ASIA

This particular part of South Asia has the largest child population in the world. Unfortunately, newest research shows that approximately 4% of the child population in this region 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 this part of South Asia 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 in this part of the world do not live to the age of 5. These issues, combined with an unbalanced caste system make orphaned children in South Asia most at risk.

ONE VOICE MISSION CHILDREN’S HOME

One Voice Mission responded to the call to care for the orphaned and abandoned children in their community by starting a ministry that began housing four children. The number of children grew to now over 30 in their full time care. Children come to One Voice for many reasons, including death of parents, parents too ill to provide care, abuse, and extreme poverty. No matter the reason, One Voice believes that all children deserve to be loved no matter the circumstances. One Voice is committed to providing education, uniforms, books, shelter, healthcare and food. In addition to the residential program, One Voice also has a feeding program that reaches children from many different villages.

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 issued in this part of South Asia since 2009. In most cases these children are abandoned because of financial issues, relational problems, gender preferences or simply because they are unwanted.

Child Labor

There are an estimated 17 million child laborers in this particular part of South Asia, the world’s highest number of working children. A lot of these children end up as “street beggars” and “rag pickers”, scouring the garbage dumps.
