Not Today, India's dark secret & Orphans First

Every day, thousands of children are sold into slavery because their parents are so poor, they cannot feed them. Every day, innocent children are made into prostitutes with no choice of their own. They have no choice. But we have a choice -- to help them or just bury our heads in the sand and pretend they don't exist.

Orphans First provides homes, education, Christian love and much more to vulnerable, impoverished children who might otherwise find themselves exploited and taken into slavery. We have 3 homes in India -- homes filled with laughter -- homes where the children are well-fed and healthy.

Not Today is a movie (just released in DVD) which tells the story of a young man, Caden, who finds himself caught face-to-face with the plight of India's Dalit children. It is the story of Annika, sold by her father. And it is (inadvertently) the story of what our children at Orphans First have been rescued from.

Read my full review of Not Today in The Christian Perspectives Examiner here. It will also appear in Assist News Service.
