With 1.35 billion inhabitants, India is the country with the second-largest population in the world. Approximately 158.8 million people are under the age of six in the population. Thirty million of these kids are orphans, accounting for a sizeable share of the young population. Just 370,000 of the 30 million children are enrolled in daycare centres. India has a large number of orphans as a result of several national problems. In a 2016–17 research, the Ministry of Women and Child Development (MWCD) discovered that there are 9,589 orphanages (CCI). Just 9% of these receive support from the government, as 91% of them are non-governmental.


First of all, a large number of children in India are left orphaned due to their parents’ inability to support them or their decision to flee a hazardous circumstance. According to the International Learning Movement (ILM), a large number of parents choose to forsake their children rather than making an effort to care for them, with over half of the population living in poverty.
A child must be in an orphanage or adoptive home in India in order to be eligible for adoption. The youngster is now considered to be “legally free for adoption.”


Even worse, according to DW, 91% of orphanages that are not directly managed by the government are not associated with adoption agencies, rendering them essentially unnoticeable to the general public.

The process of adoption can be challenging and demoralising for those who are considering parenthood. According to DW, in a report, prospective parents express dissatisfaction with “a lack of support from services while applying for adoption.” Prospective parents must contend with a “lack of information and transparency from the Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA)” as well as frequent “delays and uncertainty of referrals.”


How dangerous it is to be an orphanage!


Millions of orphans in India are left to fend for themselves on the streets, where they are vulnerable to several threats. The most harmful kind is trafficking since it targets unprotected minors for exploitation. According to DW, although the orphans who wander the streets are shielded from the law, they are defenceless because there is no physical force to keep them safe.

The U.S. Department of State’s Trafficking in Persons report for 2022 states that 59% of the trafficked victims in India were female, while 47% of the trafficked individuals were minors. Of the girls, 27% are married before turning 18, and they are typically sold as child brides. According to ILM, the youngsters are frequently coerced into fighting for radical organisations.


“Bhakshak” movie is eye opener. Leadership to women who is under impression of her husband will not bring a change in nation.  Stop giving money to beggars and for drastic change a wealthy person should donate in population control and education to these children.  We need an attention of entrepreneurs for it. CSR activities should be conducted wisely.
