A third of the Indian population lives below the poverty line, many having to make do with less than a dollar a day. About half of the adult population is illiterate. The majority of people living in rural areas does not have access to clean water, proper wastewater management, or electricity – not to mention schools or hospitals.
We want to help break this vicious circle of poor education, poverty, and disease!
The donations collected will enable the Indian Women And Child Welfare Trust to build an entire two-storey school. The Indian Women And Child Welfare Trust is an Indian NGO with good local contacts and a great deal of experience that has managed to convince us personally of their sustainable commitment to helping the poor people.
The construction of an elementary school in one of the poorest regions in the world will help in a variety of ways:
Children will learn to read and write, giving them the opportunity to receive professional training or even go to university. Without an education, these children have barely any chance of breaking out of poverty. Children with reading and writing skills can support their families and increase their independence by making important information accessible. Educating children on the fundamentals of health and hygiene benefits the entire family as well as the community, thus helping the people to help themselves.
