MY NAME IS ORPHAN:
Mission for Orphans presents a touching, up-close-and-personal account of the plight of street kids and orphans in Mumbai, India and grassroots efforts to rescue them. Gene Rumley, an American businessman, visits Mumbai to document the work of Biju Thampy, an Indian humanitarian worker, and to assist Biju in his tireless mission to feed, clothe, and educate street children. "My Name is Orphan" is a life-changing West meets East journey that evidences how seemingly insurmountable obstacles can be overcome when people come together for a noble cause.
Children in poverty are prone to trafficking, especially the girls. Slum areas of Mumbai have an estimated 300,000 street children.
Mission For Orphans is a grassroots organization reaching out, touching lives of orphans, street children and victims of human trafficking.
Our purpose is to rescue children that are trapped in extreme poverty, abandoned, abused, and forced into child labor.
There are over one hundred forty million orphans worldwide and over two hundred million children are in child labor globally.
It is estimated half of the children are involved in the worst kind of forced child labor, such as child prostitution, hard labor in mines and stone quarries, etc.
