slum child SCHOLARSHIPS FOR CHILDREN OF THE SLUMS. Millions of children live in the Indian slums with no opportunity to receive an education, let alone any normal sense of nourishment or hygiene. Our education center, "The Children's Hope Center" is located in one of the largest slum areas of India, in the city of Hyderabad (pop. 8 million). We're in need of finding scholarship sponsors to bring in several children we have identified as meeting our profile for at-risk candidates, namely children aged 5 to 7 living in shanty homes in the slums, found scavenging in the main city trash heap looking for recyclables on behalf of their parents or relatives. Many like the little girl Babita seen in the photo spend their days rummaging through the trash looking for anything salvageable that might fetch a few pennies in the market. Our education center provides a well-rounded education including a computer lab, hot meals, hygiene supplies and medical care for the new students brought in as a result of your donation. Through this program, we're seeking to attack the core issues that perpetuate the cycle of poverty and put children at risk for human trafficking. For a mere $500 scholarship, or a share thereof, all of the needs for one child to remain enrolled in the program for one year will be covered! [ related blog entries ]
