Many people ask us how we find new children or how they find us?

Every orphaned or poverty stricken child in India has to be accounted for and documented.  We sometimes go to a Village Head in surrounding villages and ask if they know of any children in need. In the past we have had friends of Global Watch who find children in need. It may be a struggling widow or widower or perhaps a family living so remote and in such poverty stricken conditions that the child would never get an education. Yet before we accept a child they each need to be approved by the Child Welfare Office. The decision to place a child under government authorized care is backed up by further documentation in the form of interviews with neighbors and relatives etc.
