Poverty in India

Kids growing up in poverty in India face many grim issues, such as very poor hygienic conditions that lead to chronic illnesses, difficulty in finding jobs due to lack of ability to get even basic skills or training, and poor educational experiences that start very young.

That's why we focus on providing access to medical and dental care, hygiene programs to stay healthy, a wide offering of career programs to prepare youth to find jobs, scholarships and early childhood development programs to bridge crucial gaps.

See how our program works and why we focus on health, education, empowerment and employment.
