This project will feed, clothe and educate 100 children in an orphanage in Orissa, India. Members of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, they have known only abject poverty.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Children of the Scheduled Casts and Scheduled Tribes who are homeless are easy targets and victims. They are sometimes sold and are often exploited by the unscrupulous who force them to work with no chance of receiving schooling or even a square meal a day. Many never reach their teens and those who do tend to turn to crime and prostitution.
How will this project solve this problem?
The project will take in such children and provide them with food, clothing and a good education. It will provide a homelike and family environment in which the youngsters can grow up to be good decent members of society, able to be self-sustaining.
Potential Long Term Impact
We will provide food, clothing, shelter and education to 100 homeless and destitute SC/ST children. They will receive health care, vocational training and be taught good moral values. They will grow up to be self-sustaining and good, decent citizens.
