Sponsor a child at SOS India-One child at a time

Equating to 4 percent of children in India, around 20 million children are orphaned. Out of them, only 0.3 percent of children are orphaned as a result of parental death while the rest have been abandoned. The figure is the result of a study done by SOS Children’s Village of India by analyzing data from National Family Health Survey-3 for the year 2005-2006.

Under the sole foundation of taking care of orphaned children, there are already a number of orphanages functioning in India and abroad. NGOs connected with orphanages are often flooded with donations from donors all around the world, who believe their donations are being received directly by the custodians of the orphanage and being used for the benefit of the lives of the orphan children.

SOS India believes that, no child should grow up alone. Despite the best efforts of our Family Strengthening programme, family breakdown is sometimes unavoidable. During such times, children become more vulnerable and need a family like environment.

We work to provide quality care to such children who are no longer living with their biological parents, these children are parentless and abandoned. We are committed to ensuring the highest standards of care in our Family like care programme.
