Our NGO helps children by making them have a successful and bright future. Offering help to them is our moral duty. Making their life successful will better up their condition.
Helping children is the major focus area of our organization. We strive to help poor children in getting an education. Education plays a crucial role in the upliftment of any family. The seeds of success in every nation on Earth are best planted in women and children. Hence we need to take care of both the seeds of success.
There are many NGOs that help poor communities, but we pay special focus to the development of kids. As they are unable to get food how can we suppose that they will get a proper education? We have seen and supported many children who wanted to study, but due to a lack of resources, they were unable to get it.
While our distribution, we met a child who was happy to get food and clothes. But he seems a little disappointed. On asking he answered that before covid, he went to a school, but now he is unable to go there. His parents cannot afford the expense of his education as they are jobless now. Volunteers helped the child in getting admission to a government school. He was so happy and said to us that he will make sure that he does something that we will be proud him of.
We cannot express how good this sounds to us. He is now happily reading and learning new things in life.

Let’s discuss some types of child abuse which will give you the idea that why we need such NGOs.
Types of child abuse
There are 4 types of child abuse:
Child abuse can be a single incident or several incidents that take place over time again. If we talk about the child protection act 1999 focuses on the impact of abuse on the child. More than how often the child abuse has occurred.
In particular, no matter whether the child has suffered significant harm. The Act also takes care of whether a child who has been harmed has a parent who is able and willing to protect them or not. So, you see why there is a need for the best child rights protection NGO in India.
Not only this, but this also states that –
If any activity impacts the child’s psychological, or emotional well-being is punishable. You can read more about the definition of harm in the Act.
Now, let’s understand what type of activity comes under what type of child abuse: –
Abuse happens when a child has intentionally hurt or injured, and it is not an accident. Physical abuse doesn’t need to always leave any visible marks or injuries.
Physical abuse can include:
- Hitting the child
- Shaking the child
- Choking the child
- Smothering the child
- Throwing the child
- Burning the child
- Biting the child
- Poisoning the child
- Using any physical restraints on the child
Sexual abuse is the most disgusting thing that happens when to a child. An adult, or teenager, who uses their power to involve another child in sexual activity is a criminal. This topic needs special care because everybody has kids at home. Mostly what happens in India is that parents feel shy in discussing certain things.
For things like sex education, periods, and child abuse they feel shy talking about them. The two reasons that we found that they do not feel like discussing this could be: –
- That they do not think their children can understand these things.
- They have the typical old mentality that when they are there for their child nobody can harm them.
But we feel that there is a crucial need to teach your, children, about such things. We are living in the 21st century hence we should act or change according to time. In today’s era, if you cannot become a friend to your children, you really can’t know about your child’s life.
You have to understand the change in behavior of your child. If you will make them aware of things like bad and good touches. The moment they feel something like this, they will immediately inform you. But for this parents and family members need to teach their children about such things.
Emotional abuse happens when a child is treated in a way that negatively impacts their: –
- Emotional, or intellectual development.
Trauma can happen because of: –
- Rejection of one child for another child
- name-calling, teasing, or bullying
- Yelling at a child
- Criticism or comparing with other children
- Isolation or locking a child up for extended periods
- Exposure to domestic and family violence.
Any domestic and family violence can also lead to emotional harm. A child who experiences violence at home is at greater risk of not having their basic needs met. This also hampers their protection and care needs. Domestic and family violence can:
- affect a child’s emotional well-being and development
- Teach them that violence is a solution to problems. (Most common problem)
- Cause post-traumatic stress disorder.
Neglect happens when a child’s basic needs are not met. This can affect their health and development. Basic needs include:
- Adequate food availability
- Proper housing and clean living conditions
- Proper Healthcare
- Adequate clothing for survival
- Maintaining personal hygiene
- Adequate supervision of their emotion
