Emmanuel ministries in India estimates that more than 100 orphaned children are institutionalized. Many of them live in orphanages with deplorable conditions, where their most basic needs are not met. The children are often hungry, scared, confused and lonely.
Most institutional orphanages are overcrowded and dilapidated, some rife with corruption, neglect and abuse. Even when managed by people with good intentions, orphanages often lack the necessary funds, resources and knowledge to properly provide for the children in their care. The fact is, most of the children in these institutions don’t stand much of a chance of breaking out of the cycle of poverty and thriving as independent adults.
It’s time we let the world’s orphans—and their caregivers—know that they matter. Together, we can make a meaningful difference by empowering each and every one of them to reach their full potential.

Until Every Child Has a Family
The ultimate goal of the Emmanuel ministries in India is to find a loving family for every orphaned child. That means we explore every avenue to reunite children with a parent or relative, if possible. In fact, we have reunited approximately 25% of our children with families. We do this by allocating resources to more effectively facilitate alternative care options, including adoption, and working with the community to ensure that excellent family support services are in place.
While a child is in transition to a family, we guarantee:
- A quality education
- A safe and loving environment
- Personalized care so they are healthy and “known”
