Prepare vulnerable youth for adulthood

Preparing orphaned and vulnerable youth for adulthood

Get involved

We believe the world’s most vulnerable children, those who are abandoned or parentless, deserve to live in safe, loving, supportive environments, and grow into happy, productive adults

25 million orphans

live in India according to Unicef estimates. Many live on the streets or become victims of child trafficking or illegal labor

400,000 children, ages 0-18

live in 10,000 Child Care Institutions (CCIs) throughout India, with minimal oversight and inadequate health care, hygiene and education

100,000 youth, ages 14-18

face being forced to leave care at age 18, with little or no preparation for supporting themselves
