Care and Compassion - Goa notes that 57 years after independence the situation of the Indian child is truly bleak. A few examples of this fallen state:

  • 60 million Indian children under the age of 6 live below the poverty line

  • Less than half of India's children between the ages of 6 and 14 years go to school

  • Every second child is malnourished

  • Almost 2 million children die each year before reaching their first birthday

  • Children of 100 million families live without water at home


  • Every child has the right to a family - biological or otherwise.

  • Where this is not possible, institutional care will be the last resort.

  • All children in institutions have the right to certain acceptable standards of care, compassion and education.
