Let’s help the children build a happy future!
Education is both the means as well as the end to a better life: the means because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one’s awareness on a range of issues – from healthcare to appropriate social behavior to understanding one’s rights – and in the process help him/her evolve as a better citizen.
India’s literacy rate is about 74% – leaving a quarter of the population without basic reading and writing skills. Poverty and illiteracy are closely linked – and with the second largest population in the world, India is home to one-third of all world poverty. While 22% of Indians fall below the poverty line, it has been estimated that more than half of the nation’s population lacks even basic literacy skills.
We aim to provide education to children, especially in rural areas and families with low economic status.
“Education can lift individuals out of poverty and into rewarding careers.”
