The Curse called Poverty!

It is believed that by the year 2030 167 million children across the globe will be living under the poverty line, 69 million children below the age of 5 will die due to mostly preventable causes and 750 million girls will fall prey to child marriage. Poverty, illiteracy and bad health conditions are the three major issues preying on the innocent. Unprivileged children, who are the world’s poorest children living in slum areas and on the streets, lead a life where in there is no money, no education, lack of sanitation facilities, food and safe drinking water and no proper houses. All this leads to problems like child labor, child marriage, major health issues and crime, posing a threat to urban society and development of the country. The same conditions are passed on to the coming generations of slum dwellers, making their upliftment difficult in the society.

19.8 million Children below age 6 in India are undernourished (ICDS 2015). It is more agreeable to have the power to give than to receive. We life in a world that may be ours today, but it truly belongs to the little ones who will be its inhabitants tomorrow. We have a huge population of underprivileged, malnourished children who are far-away from care and hope. Imparting quality education to these people. Making them self-independent in life. Providing all the basic facilities (like food, clothes and education) to adopted poor children. Let us take a step towards a lovely future.
