In today’s world, there are many Non-Profit organisations (NPOs) who come as a blessing doing miracles for children in different sectors be it from education or healthcare & nutrition. There still are many children in the local, regional and national level, who do not get one full meal a day. Right to education, nutrition and basic health facilities are alien concepts, the prime reason being the economical standard of a family which cannot afford to provide a stable and healthy upbringing and, of course, losing their parents.
To offer help and overcome the situation, non-profit organizations are addressing this problem at a larger scale. These NPOs work systematically and progressively toward their education, healthcare & nutrition needs to be met and to provide a stable future for them.
The top 4 NPOs working towards the cause of childcare are:
Miracle Foundation is an international non-profit organization that provides life-changing care and support to vulnerable orphaned children. As the name suggests, the organization helps create ‘miracles’ for those without parents and other vulnerable institutionalized children by having the goal of finding a safe, loving family for every child by 2040. With a multi-faceted, collaborative and community-based ‘Child First’ approach, Miracle Foundation India ensures that all these children are educated, healthy, safe, and, most importantly, loved until they find a permanent family.
Smile Foundation is an NGO in India directly benefitting over 750,000 children and their families every year, through more than 350 live welfare projects on education, healthcare, livelihood in over 1000 remote villages and slums across 25 states of India. Education is both the means as well as the end to a better life: the means because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one’s awareness on a range of issues – from healthcare to appropriate social behaviour to understanding one’s rights – and in the process help him/her evolve as a better citizen.
