“Mother India” is a documentary that follows the lives of a group of 25 homeless and orphaned boys and girls who are struggling to survive on the streets of Southern India. The children share their stories of how they spend their days begging for food, hopping trains and sleeping on the streets. Many also explain how the sins of addiction and sexual abuse had been destructive to the families they once had.
“Mother India” will be available for screening in June 2012, and three of the men behind the film are availing themselves for speaking engagements to help bring awareness to the the plight of orphans in India and beyond. There are an estimated 31 million orphans in India alone, with over 3 billion orphans worldwide.
