According to a study by an international children’s charity, 4 percent of India’s child population which is around 20 million are orphans.Generally, these unfortunate kids don’t get a chance to even get a proper education or enjoy the basic needs of life. But looks like something good is planned for them.

There is a discussion going on between National Commission for Protection of Child Rights and Sashastra Seema Bal regarding the future of the orphan kids from India’s 9,000 child care institutions. Now they stand a chance to serve our country with the help of defense forces who are going to help them train.


According to NCPCR officials, the border guard force is going to take children from the areas which come under their jurisdiction.The programme will include providing medical facilities and counseling to the children who want to join the Sashastra Seema Bal.

Rupa Kapoor, member of the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) said to the Mail Today,”When they came to know about the existing child care institutions in their jurisdiction, the officials have shown interest in adopting these kids.”


She also said,”The commission is heading in this direction so that when these children come out, they have a chance to lead a dignified life. This is the first time when an armed force has decided to come on board for facilitating children without any guardian.

A list of children who fall in the range of age group 15 to 18 is being prepared by NCPCR. These kids will get trained with different skills and will also have all medical facilities and counseling.The SSB has also taken the first step and decided to start the training in Assam starting from next month.

It is often seen, neglected by the society, these children choose the wrong path or take up criminal activities, this move will certainly help them in securing their future. However, the children’s opinion also needs to be taken into consideration while deciding their career path, in case they don’t want to join they should be provided with alternate career option.
