Amidst alarming socio-economic situations, a great lot many parents die. That not only leaves the child orphaned but also subjects him to the vagaries of life. As has been noted in many cases, the lack of care-givers lands the children in orphanages. Notably, most of these orphanages are non-profitable organizations (NGOs) that house the distraught kids and curb their maladies through affection, education, care and elevation. Furthermore, these institutions pledge to ensure a good future for them. Otherwise, the gangs that forcefully handicap children to beg in the streets would take them prey. Or subsequently sell baby girls into sexual slavery. Given the service of the orphanages, they see light in the end of the tunnel.

Here’s jotting down a few examples of such commendable orphanages:

1. SOS Children’s village


BK 148, Kolkata, 999999

Phone:033 4323 9200

Spanning over Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceania, the SOS Children’s village vows to provide best healthcare and indeed educational facilities to the poverty stricken orphans. They are, in particular, here to ensure complete eradication of mal-nutrition and curb the rate of children dying from preventable diseases. Especially in the rural areas of Bihar, Mizoram, Rajasthan and UP, where let alone education, basic healthcare is a dream. So they provide the homeless home and spare the child-bride the horrors of early marriage. Apart from that, the children are educated in the SOS Hermann Gmeiner Schools and put through various vocational training.

2. The Good Shephard Agricultural Mission

This is one of the prominent orphanages of India. They realize that unless an abandoned child is given love, warmth and safety in an orphanage, it will make no sense . After all, a child needs a community to turn to and a good education in a vibrant school. Also, proving hands-on training provided in a working farm is equally important. Hence, they play the guardian angel with whom children are happy as a lurk. Unlike others, this organization sustains without Government aid of any kind and engages in allied social welfare programs.
