Challenge

Care&Share works in the city of Vijayawada, a city of 1.2 million in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Approximately 30% of the population are amassed in sprawling urban slums sharing a total lack of hygiene, drinking water, and sanitation. In these slums, thousands of children - all too often illiterate, sick, and malnourished- live in utter neglect. Care&Share works in five slums to provide nutrition, medical care, and basic literacy to around 1000 children.

Solution

To offset some of the disastrous effects of malnutrition, Care&Share provides every child attending our literacy centers with a glass of milk per day. We distribute 32 gallons of milk every day; for a total cost of $25000 a year.

Long-Term Impact

Care&Share's mission is to give children an education and help them bloom into healthy, self-reliant individuals. In Vijayawada's ghastly slums, that goal cannot be accomplished without first attending to the kids' most basic nutritional needs.
