CHILDREN OF MOTHER EARTH  COME houses 200 children in India, aged between 2 and 16, who have left their homes and school due to poverty,broken families and inappropriate guidance. Most are orphans and abandoned children. Once they have left the support of their family, the children often begin a life of destruction by committing theft, begging and wandering aimlessly.

Due to the lack of fundamental care(love, security and a sense of belonging) they leave their villages in an attempt to survive, moving to the city and looking for a means to earn a living for food. When they meet with failure and hunger (which they often do), they adopt various methods for their existence, frequently becoming delinquent, on-the-run and substance-abusers.

Good education and a stable home iscritical in order to break this vicious social cycle. COME believes the ideal way to address the core issue is to bring structured education and opportunities to the orphans and underprivileged children at the source – in the villages before they leave for the city life. It is extremely difficult to save a child once he or she goes to the city and is exposed toundesirable elements.

COME’s long term plan is always to integrate these children into society to become responsible citizens with asense of self pride, confidence and balance.
