Many Indian Children are denied access to basic needs due to extreme poverty. Our Community Based Child Care Centers are havens where impoverished children, aged 3-18,experience God’s love and receive food, clothing, medical aid, education and English classes so they are equipped to thrive. We empower their families through support and education.

Abhi - 092/CBCC/CTK/NLCP
June 16, 2015 - Abhi, the little boy comes from a very poor family of five, which include his older sister and an older brother and his parents. Abhi is studying well in primary school and enjoys going to school every day. The government has certified Abhis’s family as the most backward class of people. Being in generational poverty, the parents now have come to the realization that their children would at least need to get good education in order for a better tomorrow. However, the child’s father, being a roadside cobbler with an uncertain income of $2.00 - $3.00 a day, finds it very hard to provide for sufficient food for the children, and towards the costs involved in their education. With the sponsor’s support Abhi would have access to good education, nutritious food, health care facilities and a caretaker at his service to give tuitions in addition to his school education. Sponsorship support for Abhi would help retain the smile on his face.
Jeet - 095/CBCC/CTK/NLCP
November 13, 2014 - The word ‘Jeet’ in most of the north Indian languages means ‘victory’ or ‘success’. Amidst the life of lack and struggle, Jeet’s parents certainly wish for their child to have a life of success and victory. Jeet is studying in pre-school and he has two sisters older than him. His parents strive hard to bring up the children and provide for their education. The child’s father is a cobbler who sits in a street corner to mend or polish shoes and foot wears for a paltry sum of earnings. The child’s mother would try to make up for any loss of an income by working as a maid servant, especially during rainy seasons and inclement weather conditions where her husband cannot make it up for the day’s income. It has become a norm for the children and the parents to skip between meals due to the lack of income. Living in a slum has deprived the family of a decent house, proper sanitation, electrical and water facilities. India Transformed’s sponsorship program aims to put Jeet on the path of success by assuring assistance with his education and at least one good meal in a day, access to better health care and a care giver to closely monitor his growth and development. With the sponsor’s love and care there is every assurance for Jeet to be victorious in his life.
Madhu - 091/CBCC/CTK/NLCP
December 15, 2012 - Madhu is ever smiling and cheerful in nature. She is studying in primary school and enjoys learning. She has an older brother studying in grade 3. The child’s father is a pedal cycle rickshaw puller; it is a tough job to carry passengers all the way pedaling to their destinations for a paltry sum of money. The child’s mother, being a housewife, is not able to give their children three times food every day, because the father’s income has been an average of $ 2.75 a day - too meager to support even the basic needs of the family. Nonetheless, to give education to their children has been the parents’ heart’s desire; they wish that at least their children, by getting good education, would escape from their generational poverty. Here comes the role of ‘India Transformed’ to transform the lives of such children with the support of a sponsor. Madhu is very enthusiastic about schooling and deserves to get help from the sponsorship program. A sponsor’s love and support will help her have access to onetime nutritious food, evening snacks, educational supplies and health care facilities. Your kind decision to sponsor will make a big difference in Madhu’s life.
Niraja - 096/CBCC/CTK/NLCP
November 15, 2012 - Niraja and her family are living through acute poverty; her parents could not find a job in their village and hence had to move to the city slum. Their only recourse to lead a life with their two children - Niraja and her older sister is to work as laborers from dawn to dusk to earn a small income of $ 2 to $ 3 in a day or a fluctuating $ 45 to $ 55 in a month. Bad housing conditions, shortage of food, poor clothing and lack of medical care have rendered the children mal-nourished and deprived. In spite of hardship, the children go to school with lot of interest. For this family, the only hope for betterment is the love and support of a sponsor. Sponsorship will help the child to have access to nutritious food and evening snacks every day and a social worker/teacher will personally take care of the child in her growth and wellbeing. The support will also provide for continual opportunity for education as she will be supplied with educational materials as and when needed. With your encouragement Niraja can surely look forward to a better future.
Rakhi - 090/CBCC/CTK/NLCP
August 10, 2014 - Rakhi is in pre-school and likes to learn alphabets and rhymes and enjoys a lot of fun with peers. The parents of Rakhi belong to a community who are mostly the cobblers. Rakhi’s father is a cobbler too, who does mending and polishing of foot wears in one of streets in the market. The child’s mother is a home maker. The child’s father earns $ 2.50 a day, with this income it is way beyond their capacity to even have one proper meal a day. Rakhi and her little brother are poorly nourished and clothed. As slum dwellers, the family doesn’t have a decent house too. In spite of poverty, helplessness and a life in slum conditions, the child’s parents have devout interest in sending their daughter to a good school. However, to provide for educational needs has been very challenging. Sponsorship will go a long way to ensure continual educational opportunity, nutritious food and health care for the child. A sponsor’s timely support is a need of the hour to begin changing the life of the child for a better tomorrow.
Rohit - 093/CBCC/CTK/NLCP
January 7, 2014 - Rohit is a little boy in pre-school. It is quite a large family of seven with three daughters and two sons for the parents. Rohit is the last among the children and so, he is most loved one in the family. The house that the family lives in is just a hut with minimal facilities that a slum dwelling can afford. The child’s father is a cobbler at a street corner, whose earning always depends on a passerby approaching him for mending shoes, polishing or repairing foot wears. His small earnings at the end of the day often fluctuate. In order to make ends meet, the child’s mother works as a maid and does mopping, dish washing, laundry, etc. However, their irregular income barely even matches the needs of the family. As a result, the family lives in poverty all the time and eventually children are the most affected. Except for one sibling, the rest of the children are school going and it invariably is a burden for the parents to meet the educational costs and it won’t be too long that the children would drop out of school to help supplement the family’s income. Through the sponsorship support at least Rohit’s education will be secured and he would also enjoy nutritious food every day; Rohit would also be provided proper health care and taught social and moral values by the dedicated care takers.
Sahi - 098/CBCC/CTK/NLCP
December 3, 2014 - Five year old Sahi is just beginning his pre-school. The child belongs to the poorest of poor sections of the cobblers community who live in a slum in a make shift house. The child’s father is a road side cobbler, who sits on the pavement and wait for customers who approach him for mending of foot wears. After a day’s long work he would be able to gather an income of around $ 2.50 or about $ 50 a month, way too small an income for the maintenance of the family for the entire month. The child’s mother is a homemaker. Sahi and his infant sister are deprived of proper nourishment and clothing. The children are seemingly under nourished. Assistance through sponsorship is the only hope for Sahi where he could enjoy nutritious meal every day with snacks or health drink; at the childcare center he would not only receive food but would also be taught moral values by a specially appointed teacher. Sahi will be cared for his health, education and general wellbeing.
Satyam - 097/CBCC/CTK/NLCP
January 1, 2015 - Satyam, the little boy in pre-school shows interest in learning and enjoys his time with peers at the childcare Centre. He lives with his parents and an older brother in a city slum and the government has classified them as people living under ‘Below Poverty line’. The child’s father is the bread winner of the family. He goes to work at the railway station and bus terminals for loading and unloading of goods and his day wages have always been not more than $ 2.00 to $ 2.50 a day due to which the family has always lived in poverty. The child’s mother takes care of the children with whatever little means that is available in a day. Satyam and his older brother are studying in school and they are deprived of sufficient food, good clothing and care. Satyam through the sponsorship support will have access to proper nourishment, educational needs and health care. Your kind sponsorship will serve as a good foundation for his education as well an encouragement to Satyam to shine forth in the days and years to come.
Sonali - 094/CBCC/CTK/NLCP
November 21, 2015 - Sonali is in pre-school; she has a little brother and that makes it for a small family of four including the parents. The child’s parents are the slum dwellers, who live by hard labor with wages so low that do not allow them to escape poverty. Sonali’s father does the hard labor of sweeping and cleaning drainages. His salary as a laborer has been too meager to make ends meet. The child’s mother cares for the children at home and runs the family with whatever little her husband brings home after his own expenses. Low income has impacted the children in a way that they do not get to have nutritious food and good clothing. Poverty in the family is deep rooted and if not for some external source of help, the plight of the children would also be the same as parents. Sonali deserves a better life and your sponsorship support could help provide opportunities of continued schooling, good food, health care and spiritual growth.
Wansika - 089/CBCC/CTK/NLCP
June 15, 2015 - Four-year-old Wansika has been a source of happiness to her parents in the midst of their utter poverty. Wansika likes to play with peers and shows interest in learning. The child’s age doesn’t qualify for admission in school, but she often visits the childcare Centre of the project and awaits a sponsor to care for her. Though the sponsorship support Wansika will become a part of the childcare program on a regular basis and will have the opportunity to enjoy a nutritious meal. The caregivers of the project will also teach her alphabets, rhymes and numbers to help her begin her schooling well during the upcoming academic year. Sponsorship to this child will indeed be a great support because the child’s father is able to earn only $2.00 a day in the market place, doing loading and unloading of goods and the mother tries to help her husband by washing dishes in a couple of houses in order to make ends meet, but it doesn’t happen all the time. Your sponsorship would be a great blessing indeed.
