Support the Vulnerable during the Pandemic

Save The Children India (STCI) is a nonprofit organization that envisions India as a Child-Friendly Nation. It is committed to preventing the exploitation and all other forms of discrimination against vulnerable women and children, and empowering them to lead a life of dignity, self-respect, and independence.

 

Namita (name changed) is barely educated, having only reached Grade 4 in her short stint in school. Her husband made it till Grade 7. Their three children however were set to change the course for the family, with all three enrolled in school and their parents determined that they should at least see them through their secondary education. But with no paid work over the past six months, their dream is now stands blurred and their determination dented. Namita has worked as a domestic help, and her husband is a daily wage labourer. Their savings ran out within a couple of months and since then the only thing
they have only managed to do is scrape enough together for a meal or two every day.

 
It is no surprise that the children don’t have access to education anymore. The only way right now to continue their education would be online, accessed through a phone. The family has none. There are so many such families in our own cities and neighbourhoods. Food, a smart phone, access to medicine and health services - things that are part of our everyday life have become even more inaccessible for them now,after 1 year into a lockdown. With public services slow to start, daily wage opportunities being too far and few in between, more of the urban disadvantaged now rely on contributions from people like you so that STCI, which can reach out to them with grocery kits, education programmes and enable skilling programmes where possible so, that can help people can find paid work.


Supporting STCI enables us to reach out to families like Namita’s, to ensure their dreams of better lives for their children are supported.
