4 Percent (or 20 Million) of India’s Child Population Are Orphans

A new study by an international children’s charity has found that 4 percent (or 20 million) of India’s child population are orphans. Most of these children have been abandoned by their parents. In fact, the charity estimates that only 0.3 percent of these #orphans are children whose parents have actually died.

CARA Adoption Statistics

Adoption Rates in India have always been low, but they have been dropping in the past few years: the government’s central adoption resource authority (CARA) adoption statistics show that in 2010 there were 5,693 in-country adoptions, while in 2017-2018, there were only 3,276 in-country adoptions.

The Harsh Truth

These are disgraceful figures for a population as mammoth as India’s. And currently, there are approximately only 20,000 parents in line waiting to adopt, compared to the 27.5 million couples who are actively trying to conceive but are experiencing infertility, according to the Indian society of assisted reproduction.
