India is one of the most highly populated and poorest country in the world. It is estimated that one million children become orphans every year. These children are vulnerable and share a common story: a life of poverty, malnutrition, social exclusion, illiteracy and exploitation.
Poverty is an acute and widespread condition for most of India's 375 million children. 50% of India's total population lives below the poverty line. They lack food, clean water, adequate housing, clothing and proper work conditions. According to statistics, 5.6 million children die every year because of malnutrition.
