Joining Hands With NGOs
Poverty and a poor literacy rate in India contribute towards acute child labor problems in India. This has to be considered a curse where small children are unable to enjoy their childhood and unable to go to school. They do not get any chance to get even some basic education. This again creates a vicious circle of poor literacy rates and intense poverty.
In a poor family, whereby the breadwinner is unable to earn enough for their family expenses tends to use the children in their family to supplement their family income by sending them to work in difficult conditions. It is the right of every child to get their education but their rights go out of the window.
Children NGOs try to help the situation by providing welfare programs and by their social service in India. There are many children NGOs in India that try to help children in a number of ways. They try to get children out of the difficult working environment and from the mean living conditions. They give children good education. Poor children in the slums of Mumbai seldom see schools because they do not have money to pay their fees. Children NGOs in India try to offer free education to children India and thereby improve their standard of living.
One of the most dedicated India NGO movements is Tarang. This NGO is dedicated to providing the slum children of Mumbai with quality free education. They pay for all the educational expenses involved for the slum children in Mumbai. They protect them from child labor and provide them with a protective environment where their talents can be enhanced. Tarang has a noble mission, which is to educate every child in this planet. Such a mission will over a period of time will help the society at large as the literacy rate of the slums of Mumbai improves. An entire generation will be helped and the standard of living of that generation will automatically improve when they get their basic education. They will be able to take better jobs and get better pays. This will improve the financial status of each family.
This is one of the many areas that NGOs try to help the poor and the needy. Fulfilling the rights of small children is one of the most important social services any India NGO can perform because small children do not have voice of their own to raise their concerns in the society and often their weakness is exploited. Children NGOs try to become the voice of this voiceless group of people. They will not be able to accomplish anything unless they get social support from the others. So it is each one’s responsibility to support children NGOs in whatever way possible.
