Smile India Trust is easing the lives of poor people through NGO services. Our NGO looks after families who live in slums and ghettos and fight for their survival. We as a charitable organization help them in getting at least the necessities. Helping them at least with their basic necessity is what our NGO services are for. India is a country with a huge population, but among them, 35.2% population lives in slums. We try hard to ease up their life, both the volunteers and donors help us a lot.
The issues faced by the people living in the slum in India have become a great concern for the public authority. Slums are seen as a significant issue within many metropolitan areas. That is why we visit door-to-door to understand the problem and solve them. Considering the current poor metropolitan ecological quality in India what we observe is:-
Most of the families affected by metropolitan improvement projects are in the ghetto. There is a need to look at the ghetto areas and their everyday environment. The Indian government has no option but to address the issues. That is plaguing the entire population of the Indian slums and we are trying to help these people.
Some of the problems faced by People living in slums:-
- Poverty and Social Exclusion
For some special cases, the need for the ability to pay is thought of as a focal feature of ghetto areas. It is not yet seen as a cause of the ghetto’s status as an intrinsic quality of the ghetto. Slum conditions are physical and legal forms that hinder the human and social turn of events. In addition, ghettos are areas of social rejection that are often viewed as having high levels of wrongdoing and other social distancing measures. In some definitions, such areas are related to specific vulnerable segments of the population. Like daily wage workers, uprooted people, ethnic minorities, etc.
Unhealthy Living Conditions and Hazardous Locations
Unwanted day-to-day environment results in absence of fundamental administration. Noticeable open sewers, absence of paths, uncontrolled unloading of waste, contaminated conditions, and so forth, their homes can be in critical areas or land unsatisfactory settlement. This is why Smile India Trust NGO services work for them to give them a better life as soon as possible.
Lack of Basic Necessity
The absence of necessities is perhaps the most referenced quality worldwide. Lack of access to developed disinfection offices and water sources is the main component. The poor living in villages do not have a proper power supply, roads, and sewerage. We supply them with properly cooked food and safe drinking water.
More Population, Less Space
Overpopulation means less space for each person living in a space, and higher house rates. Those are co-living by different families, and countless single-room units under the same roof. People living in Slums are generally seen living with 6-7 members in a room. This is a disastrous situation, especially, when the impact of Covid keeps coming.
- Increase in Illiteracy
Due to the lack of income, these families are not able to make their children literate. Lack of education brings more unemployment to society. More unemployment means an increase in poverty. Education gives person skills to earn and understand things in a better way. Making the Indian Population educated is the goal of our NGO.
How did NGO Services impact the lives of the people living in slums?
Our NGO Services provide food to poor families daily. We distribute food to 7000-8000 people a day in Delhi/NCR in different locations. This brings smiles to their faces and helps them in defeating their hunger. Food provided to the children helps them in protecting them from malnutrition. Providing them with food, clothes, medical assistance, and education is our ultimate duty. We had helped many families and given new hope to them.
