Dusty, crowded streets full of lepers; hungry street kids foraging for food; an unattended Brahman bull snarling traffic; a farmer hauling a massive load precariously balanced on a two-wheeled cart, and a homeless mother in a vibrant silk sari carrying her baby with all her meager possessions balanced on top of her head...

This is India, a country that accounts for almost 20% of the world's population. The gritty, gruesome urban reality of kids living on the streets brings us to the realization that these children have little hope of surviving past childhood. Massive poverty and lack of infrastructure all take their toll on the impossibilities of trying to survive in a country that is over-populated and unable to cope with the most urgent needs of its people. With 4 times the population of the US on about 1/3 of the land, there's not always enough to go around here. While incredible wealth and hi-tech development can be seen extensively throughout the country, a great majority of Indians are simply struggling to survive. There is intense competition for dwindling resources. Millions of children are most at-risk. One Life sponsors these children. Many of our children here were orphaned, abandoned or come from families unable to meet their needs. Your sponsorship will enable a child to get an education, clothes, medical care and spiritual nurturing.
