Issues We Address
Child & Youth Care
In India, 29.6 million children live without parental care, that is, they lack the oversight of at least one of their parents. These children, who have been temporarily or permanently separated from their biological families, need protection in the form of quality alternative care. The grave reality is that only 1.5% receive any sort of formal alternative care.
In India, girls' education is often considered the lowest priority; particularly, a girl's higher education. The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated the issue with the deepening digital divide and has impacted girls’ education, especially higher education disproportionately.
The youth of India is its untapped potential. Around 66% of the total population is below the age of 35. Nearly 40% of the Indian population is aged 13 to 35 years Youth constitute a large chunk of the Indian workforce, yet 80% don't possess any employable skills.
