Education is the right of each and every child but 7.1 million children in India do not go to school. So our NGO is
working very hard so that we can ensure that every child can have the education facility and hence building a
promising future for themselves.
Responding to Emergencies and Disaster Risk Reduction
Children are the worst affected victims of natural disasters. We work to ensure their right to survival and
development after an emergency by providing immediate support. We also train children to resist critical situations
during natural disasters.
Approx 1.73 million children die in India every year due to lack of treatment. Child mortality rate in India is three
times higher among the poor than the rich. We work with communities and the government health systems to
improve child and maternal health care.
National NGO tries hard to make sure that each and every child can get at least the basic stuffs of their need. We
also provide facilities for the children who are mentally or physically challenged. We are happy if our NGO can
contribute to make a little difference in the condition of these children. We do as much as we can for the bright
future of the children as well as the country
