POPULATION OF INDIA: 130 Crore (1.3 Billion)

TOTAL NO. OF CHILDREN IN INDIA: 43 Crore (430 Million)

NO. OF CHILDREN GROWING UP WITHOUT PARENTAL CARE: 2 Crore (20 Million)

 

Barely heard and hardly noticed, more than 20 million abandoned children like Anya and Rohit are lost among the living, across India. This number is estimated to rise to approximately 24 million by the year 2021.

Without parents, these orphaned, abandoned, vulnerable children face a life filled with multiple violations of their rights and a childhood robbed of memories, love, care and a loving home. The plight of all these children demands far more than the muted response it has so far evoked from the nation.

#NoChildAlone Campaign is a step to ensure that over 26,000 children under the care of SOS Children’s Villages of India will never be alone again. Through this campaign, we want to connect you to these children who need care and protection. YOU can ensure no child grows up alone. 

SOS Children’s Villages of India has always responded promptly to the call of a child in distress, homeless, or rendered parentless as a result of natural or man-made disasters across India. Tireless efforts have been made by SOS India to ensure that once parentless and abandoned children are cared and protected for and don’t grow up alone. Lives of children under our care have been transformed through; the specialized long term care and preventive short term care programmes. These programmes are:

1. Family Based Care (FBC): It’s a curative model where we ensure that children without parental care grow up in a loving home under the care of a SOS Mother.

How will your donation help: Your support will help us strengthen our efforts to provide the best facilities to parentless children under the Family Based Care

2. Family Strengthening Programme (FSP): A preventive model where we support children who are at the risk of losing parental care.

How will your donation help: Your support will help us reach out to a larger number of children at risk of losing parental care and abandonment. We strengthen their families by enabling their parents to take better care of their children, under the Family Strengthening Programme

 

UNFORTUNATELY, WE CANNOT DO THIS ALONE. WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERY CHILD HAS WHAT THEY NEED TO SHAPE THEIR OWN FUTURES: A STABLE FAMILY, QUALITY MEDICAL CARE AND EDUCATION.

 

How can you contribute OR How can you help?

Let us be the ones who stand firm until all children lost in such a dangerous world get one more chance to rebuild their futures, because "NO CHILD SHOULD GROW UP ALONE". Together we make this a reality.
