Our children come from the poorest slum communities in Bangalore. Around 7 to 10 members in a family have been found to be living in a one-room cramped situation, with no running water or toilets, in a very unhygienic condition. Many come from broken families, single parent homes and survival for all is very challenging. There is an overwhelming amount of domestic violence, child physical and sexual abuse, addiction to alcohol and drugs, gambling and malnutrition. Many of the children are forced, by their parents, into child labour and early marriages, due to extreme poverty. Nirikshea is creating a wave of change towards a new way of life. With your help these children can have hope, for a bright and purposeful future.
