A Young orphaned boy stands alone on the streets of India. He has nothing and no one, just like many, many children in India.
The streets of India, or anywhere for that matter aren't safe for children. Just like this young boy, they are left to fend for themselves and are exposed to violence.
Chilrdren are being abandoned every day, some before they can even walk or talk. 30% of children in India suffer from poverty, and with the way it is going, this percetage will only go up.
High population growth rate is one of the major reasons for poverty in India. This further leads to a higher level of illiteracy, poor health care facilities, and lack of access to financial resources. Some environmental issues cause poverty to increase, such as drought or rainfall.
Organizations such as Globe Aware are helping to solve the problem of poverty in India as well as other third-world countries. They are finding homes or orphanage-type locations that are safe and encouraging environments for children.
Such organizations are helping children all over the world, and providing them with a better, more promising future. The problem is far from being solved, but with your help we get a little bit closer to solving world poverty and helping the children.
