Mother’s day is celebrated with much fanfare each year. Gifts, cards, special meals, and outings are planned. While all this happens year on year, India is also home to about 20 million orphans for whom Mother’s day is of no significance.

To change this, The Better India is collaborating with Seven Seas, and urging mothers to extend their love and care to these orphaned children, albeit for a day.

Here is a list of orphanages and organisations where you can spend the day in some major cities in the country.

Before you volunteer, please follow the below guidelines to have a fun and safe day:

1) Do call two hours before the event to confirm your participation and the on-ground situation. Do confirm if the children are free, or any other details as may be required.

2) Prepare beforehand with games, topics to discuss and other activities that can fill the time allocated.

3) Get prior permission to bring food, toys or any other gifts or packages that you may wish to distribute.

4) Please get permission before clicking any pictures of the children. Please ensure the children are also comfortable with having their picture taken.

5) Be open-minded. Remember, different children have different personalities, so be prepared to change your plans or activities.

6) Do not take the children away or outside the designated interaction area. For more extensive plans, please confirm beforehand.


This Mother’s Day, join Seven Seas and TheBetterIndia, and be a part of spreading the gift of love to hundreds of children across India!
