Especially on the edge of large cities and inside the country, oppressive poverty prevails. People live in wood sheds or below plastic awnings, without running water, power or sanitary facilities.
Poverty is a reason and result of child labour.
India has one of the highest child labour rates in the entire the world. Even young kids have to work to help nourish their family. They pick trash, carry rocks or polish shoes but do not visit a school. Hence, they are unable to support their own family once they have grown up due to the lack of education.
The Fam. Posielek Foundation and its indian partner organization, the “Change Foundation”, support projects that fight poverty and child labour by funding the cost of education for kids and young people.
