Smile India Trust is recognized as one of the best NGOs in India. We provide an enormous number of services that are necessary for the betterment of the poor. Our NGO does not only support a family but also consoles them in their bad situations.
Like if we talk about the situation when everybody was busy safeguarding themselves. We were busy safeguarding the poor homeless citizen of the society. Protecting them from danger is the moral duty of our organization. Covid is the time they have faced the horrible phase of their life.
We all know that the Indian population in slums is increasing rapidly. Due to this more slums and the problem of less availability of resources is also increasing. To reduce the shortage of resources like food, and water, we support deprived families.
There are thousands of people who come to cities in search of jobs. But they end up living in slums because of the inflated rates. It is estimated that by 2050 the urban slums will be 6.3 billion worldwide. The condition of the urban poor is degrading with each passing day. One of the best NGOs in India encourages people to reduce the population to reduce the lack of resources.
- 52 percent of Delhi’s population resides in urban slums.
- Nearly one in every six urban Indian residents lives in a slum.
- Around 41.2 million children in the age group of 0 to 6 live in urban areas.
- Every eighth urban child (0 to 6 years) in India lives in slums.
- More than 8.1 million children live in slums.
- There was a decline in the birth of nearly 3 million girls as opposed to 2 million boys during 2001-11
- About 47% of urban poor child is suffering from malnourishment.
One of the best NGOs suggesting ways by which we can support slum children
The nutritional status of the urban poor in Delhi is a matter of concern. Being a state with the second highest per capita income in India many children sleep hungry.
1. Positive tone of talking, and inquire about their well-being
Many children in slums opt the way of begging to meet their requirements. Begging is not their choice but their need to fulfill the requirements. Time when they start begging they get cut-off themselves from education. Without education, they will never go to get a respectable job. Because they are below 15 no one will allow them to work this condition forces them to beg. You must have seen children begging near a street light or traffic lights. When they come to you did you ever watch your tone??? Your ruthlessness destroys their hope. So next time when a child comes to you to beg instead of talking harshly ask the child’s name to comfort him/her.
2. If the child looks distressed then report to the local Child Welfare Committee or police
You must have seen or heard somewhere that the children get abused by any family member or in the school. If a child gets abused and you came to know about it. You should immediately report it to the relevant authority to safeguard that child. Because when you left the child to suffer alone, they will start feeling depressed. With time, this can also lead them on the wrong path of work like drug addiction, violence, etc.
These include the local Child Welfare Committee or the police.
3. Volunteer at a Centre for street children
After money, your time is the most valuable resource you can gift these children. Smile India Trust provides these children with education, relaxation, psycho-social support, and counseling. At our rehabilitation centers, we conduct activities to make children learn. When they complete their tasks they get rewards. This is an attractive proposition to motivate them to leave behind their life on the streets. This is the reason why we are one of the best NGOs in India. We work for the health and prosperity of slum children.
4. Donate to charity and do fundraising for NGOs
Donating is the easiest, and the fastest act of support you can take part in. The equal of a cup of coffee or the next movie you’re watching can go towards giving a child a better future. You can also sign up and be a part of an NGO’s various fundraising initiatives. Either on social media, or in on-ground activities at malls, and public places. Your donation can help us in uplifting the future of children. Doing charity does not need to have large resources. All you need is a big heart to support the future of India.
5. Campaign for NGOs
It is the ordinary people who are usually seen as the most sincere voices of children and their needs. Through social media, as well as by reaching out to people in your network. Our NGO runs campaigns like “Meals of Happiness” to feed thousands of hungry stomachs. As a responsible citizen, you should come forward to support such campaigns. You can drive awareness of NGO campaigns, their goals, etc.
As the number of the urban street is increasing there are more numbers mishappening. Incidents like child trafficking and kidnapping have increased. Children these days lack parental care. This may increase parents of slums or good houses being busy in money making. Yes, they are doing all these to comfort their children, but sometimes they start giving less time. Children need much attention and care during the initial growing stage.
We support children in their nourishment needs, education, health, and other necessities. You can see all these activities of support on our website https://smileindiatrust.org/. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram for daily updates. We hope from now on whenever you see a child begging you will support that child.
