It’s not just disheartening, rather it’s unacceptable that in this day and age, every 20 seconds a child in India dies from preventable or easily treatable causes.
Through the generous support of our donors, we have been able to save the lives of thousands of children who battled issues like malnutrition, diarrhoea, etc. We have what it takes to provide life-saving healthcare to the newborns of India. What we need is your support.Contribute today at
bit.ly/saveayounglife to gift health to a child who needs it the most. ‪#‎NoChildBornToDie‬

Menaka Das of Sonua village in the West Singhbhum district of Jharkhand had never known how a computer looked like. Today, she studies at the Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya (KGBV) and can be seen excitedly arranging her files on a computer in her school. This student of class VIII cannot wait to show her files to her parents in the upcoming Parents-Teacher Meeting (PTM).

Save the Children has been working to facilitate quality education for girls in at least 6 Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas (KGBVs) and 14 other schools in the most backward areas of Jharkhand to ensure their holistic development. From setting right the libraries and infrastructure to conducting spoken English and computer education classes, we’re making giant strides in educating the girls of Jharkhand. Find out more about our work here: https://www.savethechildren.in/85-latest-news/320-making-giant-strides-in-educating-the-girls-of-rural-jharkhand.html

All of this has been made possible due to your overwhelming support. And it’s your support which can help us achieve a lot more for these girls. Please click here: bit.ly/girlchildeducatation ‪#‎Education4All‬ ‪#‎GirlChildEducation

The underprivileged children definitely deserve the best like our own children but that would be possible for Save the Children to do only if we generously support it .

Over 8000 children are possibly engaged in garment-related labour in Delhi of which the vast majority (up to 70%) could be girls - this is a startling finding of Save the Children's comprehensive report on child labour in garment industry in Delhi, 'The Hidden Workforce'. The report was launched last Friday at an event held at the COnstitution Club of India by Sandeep Kumar, Women and Child Development Minister in Delhi Govt.


After extensively researching 14 garment-industry hotspots across different districts of Delhi, the report establishes how the childhood (and the future) of hundreds of children in the National Capital is being destroyed by pushing them into garment-related labour. At the launch, Save the Children’s CEO, Thomas Chandy, strongly emphasized the need for a blanket ban on child labour for children up to 14 years of age so that such issues can be addressed. Read the summary of the report here: http://bit.ly/thehiddenworkforce. To read the full report, click here: http://bit.ly/1dZ6Xwk

In the slums of Delhi and Kolkata, we’re reaching the doorsteps of the most marginalised mothers and children with urgent medical aid nutritional support. Our Mobile Healthcare Unit is a “clinic on wheels” - with qualified doctor, testing lab and a pharmacy on board - which covers slums in Kolkata and Delhi and offers healthcare services to those who need it the most - pregnant women and newborns coming from disadvantaged backgrounds.

You can help us keep the bus rolling so that children, mothers, and pregnant women in slums can avail the benefit of urgently needed healthcare services. It’s your support which acts as fuel for our mobile clinic. Donate today to help our mobile health unit reach out to more and more people and save lives: http://bit.ly/1MnGZOp

On this World Day Against Child Labour, we bring you the story of Muna who defied the odds to leave behind the life of child labour and reach school.

The lanes in Bhubaneshwar, Odisha where young Muna used to go for ragpicking were shady and not really frequented by the city dwellers. There was no scope for him to get access to any form of learning. Save the Children intervened and got him enrolled in the National Child Labour School, a bridge school meant for child labourers. Muna proved to be a bright student and after two years, he was able to make a transition to a formal school where he now studies in class 6. Read the heartwarming story of Muna here: http://bit.ly/1p50jEX
