Give2Kidz (givetokidz.org) in Dublin, Ohio, USA is on a mission to help alleviate the lives of some poor Indian children. We are dedicated to helping in any way we can to empower some kids and their families (one at a time) and bring about lasting change.
Poverty remains a great scourge in India, and it dis-proportionally affects children, especially the girls. One in four children in India suffers from chronic malnutrition, and many lack access to education, food and shelter, clean water, basic sanitation, and health care.
Girls are especially vulnerable to abuse and disenfranchisement. From childhood, girls face hurdles that hinder their education, development, and advancement. For instance some families may decide to educate their sons instead of their daughters due to limited resources.
When girls stay in school, they live longer and healthier lives, marry later, have fewer children, drastically increase their future incomes, and emphasize education of their own daughters and sons.
Give2Kidz aims to improve the lives of children in India by providing access to basic education, transportation to schools, and other vital services. We will accomplish this by:
- Leveraging the purchasing power of the US Dollar versus the Indian Rupee, India’s national currency. One US Dollar equates to about 70 Indian Rupees.
- Purchasing books, supplies, bikes and delivering them directly to school(s), hospital(s), or other partners in India, will ensure that those who need it most will benefit from them.
