3 Ways to Empower Orphaned Youth to Unlock Their Potential

It is always difficult to observe the life of an orphan child knowing that they are not responsible for the life they are living. However, we can help empower orphan children to unleash their potential and make their futures brighter.

According to UNICEF, each year around 14,505,000 children grow up as orphans. Around 15% of such children commit suicide or adopt destructive habits. Orphanage charity organizations are already playing a strong role in shaping the lives of many. It is high time we all step up and pave the path for these children. Here are some of the things you can do to help.

Rescue And Care for Orphans:

We can all play a part by actively rescuing children from abusive environments, forced labor, early marriages, harassment, inequality, discrimination, and violence. We should care for less privileged children in the same way that we would care for our own by meeting their basic needs such as food, clothing, and shelter.

Fulfill the Needs of Malnourished Children:

We should strive to provide sufficient food items to young orphans so that they don’t go hungry. Proper care and a balanced diet should be given to them so that they grow in a healthy manner. We should petition to have the government provide food donations to various orphanages to fulfill the needs of malnourished children.

Create an Orphan Education Environment:

Every child has a fundamental right to education. We must prioritize helping orphan children develop reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. Providing them with life skills and knowledge paves the way for a successful future.
