After a serious loss in business, family of Pinky Regar, wanted her to discontinue school and stay at home for performing household chores. But Pinky was not one of those girls who reconcile to their fate without putting up a fight. Find out how with Save the Children's intervention and her own grit, she went on to become a student of class 8 in a Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya in Ajmer Rajasthan. Read her full story here: http://bit.ly/P7MBEo #GirlChildEducation.

What do you think are the major roadblocks in the way of girl child education in India? Share with us your thoughts.

Like and share, if you’re all for more girls like Pinky going to school.

When Guddi came to Delhi from her village in Bihar, she was barely 20 and had already lost her first child who was stillborn. Living in a slum in South Delhi, she was now pregnant with her second child but her relatives deterred her from seeing a doctor. In the absence of essential pre-birth care, there was a strong chance that she would end up losing her second child as well, more so because she was a woman of short height (less than 5 ft. tall) - frail and week which made giving birth all the more difficult.

Find out how Save the Children’s community health worker and our Mobile Healthcare Unit helped Guddi to ensure that her second child does not meet the fate of the first one:http://bit.ly/Qc9VBX

Even today, every 20 seconds a child is dying in India. What are the ways you think can be useful in reducing child mortality? Share with us your ideas. #NoChildBornToDie

“Trainings by Save the Children increased my confidence as a teacher. Parents in my village have taken cognizance of my confidence and as a result, enrolment rate in my school has increased drastically,” says Ajit Kumar, Teacher at Chakmusa Middle School, in Phulwari Sharif Patna.

Through our ‘Education for All’ project in Bihar, we have worked closely with 250 teachers and trained many of them on novel, effective, student-friendly classroom teaching skills. We bring you some first person accounts here: http://bit.ly/1kU4SzE #FromTheHorsesMouth

Send in your messages of support to these teachers who are doing an amazing job in the hinterlands of India. We will take your messages to them. #Education4All

The poor living in the slums of Delhi, especially the pregnant women and newborn children, face an acute shortage of healthcare. While government hospitals are often not accessed by them owing to the long waiting times and other technicalities, private hospitals are beyond their financial reach. Every day, a number of children die in these slums because of appalling lack of basic healthcare.

To address this grave issue, Save the Children runs 4 Mobile Healthcare Units (MHUs) which cater to the needs of 6 lakh people in 60 slum clusters of Delhi. Read more about our initiative here: http://ow.ly/u31Ci

An MHU is nothing short of a full-fledged clinic. Below we bring you some glimpses of our “clinic on wheels” stationed in a slum in Okhla (South Delhi).

Extend your support for ending newborn deaths in India. Donate today to help us bring healthcare to the doorsteps of poor in Delhi: http://bit.ly/1t3mnTI
