According to UNICEF in 2007, there are an astounding 25 million orphans recorded in India. Orphans are put at immediate risk because they are often seen as a burden on relatives in this society. Children living in these situations are in danger of losing opportunities for school, health care, growth, development, nutrition, and shelter; in short, their rights to a decent and fulfilling life. Moreover, with the death of a parent, children experience profound loss and a heavy burden.


Reaching Hand creates an environment of care & compassion for all those in need, particularly for children who are vulnerable and deprived. By identifying the needs of each child accordingly we provide counselling and mentoring as well as a clean living environment, nutritious food, uniforms, schooling needs, quality education, extra-curricular activities with life skills training that make them leader of tomorrow.

Long-Term Impact

The project will build the lives of 500 orphans and destitute children, making them the productive citizens of tomorrow so that they can contribute to their family, society and country. Over the next 2 years, Reaching Hand will be touching the lives of hundreds more children by providing them the protective shelter, parental care, and opportunities to harness their talents and dreams.
