The majority of orphans in India are from lower socio-economic groups and they are unable to afford formal education. It is difficult to find a school that will accept them due to their financial status. Most orphanages do not offer free education to all the children who live there, which makes it even more difficult for them to get an education. This can be attributed to the lack of financial assistance provided by the government or private agencies for orphans.
The government does not provide sufficient grants or scholarship assistance for orphans studying at a government school or college, leaving them with no other choice but to opt for private educational institutes run by charities for orphans in India.
