Runaways in India


Hundreds of children can be found on India’s railway stations wandering the platforms begging, alone and scared. Shockingly, only 3% of the children are orphans whereas 90% of the children aren’t orphans at all but both their parents are still alive.

EveryChild’s partner in India helps identify children in these desperate situations and provides safe shelters, helps counsel those traumatised by their time on the streets and, where possible, reunites them with their parents or extended family.
