In 1974 the government of India had adopted National policy for the children are the Nation’s most important asset and ensures that “It should be the policy of the state to provide adequate services to children both before and after birth through the period of their growth, to ensure their full physical, mental and social development. The state should progressively increase the scope of such services so that within a reasonable period all children in the country would enjoy optimum conditions for their maximum growth”.
Children living in orphanages are getting only basic facilities and not much programmes are provided for them to improve their self esteem (Paul, A. 2016). The researcher had adopted descriptive research design for the study. In Coimbatore district the researcher has collected 100 samples from the various orphanages by using purposive sampling method. Among the total respondents, nearly half of the respondents have moderate level of self esteem. Government and other private settings are willing to take special care and concentration to these children and gave them to proper guidance and counselling.
