INDIA - 2022

Home to a number of the foremost ancient living civilizations, today’s India is that the world’s largest democracy and a rising economic powerhouse. however it’s grappling major social, economic and environmental problems, as well as an enormous gap between the rich and people living in financial condition. While there’s a lot of wealth in India than ever before, and vital progress has been created, it hasn’t totally translated into health care and nutrition, education or higher protection for all, particularly India’s most marginalized and disadvantaged kids.


Everyone dreams of a happy home filled with love and comfort where they feel safe and secure. Sadly, this is not the case for 1.6 billion people around the globe out of which there are 160 million children. Every year 3000000 children die who are homeless.
