How ChildFund India Is Connecting With Its Audience

We all believe that Children are the future of the country, yet we turn a blind eye towards them and they fall short of achieving their dreams. This usually happens because they are living in severe scarcity, which robs them of a good health, desired nutrition, necessary education, and opportunities’ of leading a good life!

“Meena lives in a slum in Vijayawada with her grandmother. Her parents died of HIV soon after she was born. Her grandmother used to struggle to support her with whatever money she could earn doing random jobs. When Meena was born she seemed to be a normal child, but she began falling sick quite often and soon they found out that she is also infected with HIV.

This frail looking lonely child always wanted to be like other children, she wanted to go to preschool, have friends, play, study and also have parents as they do. But this was not meant to be for her! 

This is where ChildFund supported her in living a childhood which she deserved. We provided her with medicines and more importantly, healthy food supplements ensured regular health checkups and monitored her medication. With regular and timely treatment, we could see the difference in her appearance as well as energy levels. We also got Meena enrolled in the nearby preschool center, to prevent her from becoming the victim of stigma and discrimination, which this infection brings along.

ChildFund connected Meena’s grandmother with various government schemes to avail benefits and offered her a sewing machine along with other tools that she has asked for. With all this support, now Meena and her grandmother are able to lead a normal and dignified life; wherein, Meena is able to play, study and be like other children.

I am sure this story will touch your heart and you want to reach out to Meena and thousands of other children like her who are underprivileged and deserve so much more in life! 

We all believe that Children are the future of the country, yet we turn a blind eye towards them and they fall short of achieving their dreams. This usually happens because they are living in severe scarcity, which robs them of a good health, desired nutrition, necessary education, and opportunities’ of leading a good life!

For children to thrive we need to provide them lasting support and enable environment, which starts with families, extends to communities and engages with the stakeholders.

For nearly 7 decades, ChildFund in India has been working with underprivileged children and youth, with a vision of “an India where children lead a dignified life and achieve their full potential”.

ChildFund has been significantly successful in establishing a relationship with diverse stakeholders including the communities it works with, district, state and national government bodies, academic institutions, media, funding agencies, and Corporates. We are associated with these bodies which examine the various forms of violence children are exposed to, the impact of violence on children and ways of preventing and responding to it.

Our long existence as leaders and experts in the field of child development is proof of our strong connection with our audience. Mutual respect, values and commitment to sustain real change defines our decade-long relationship with our local partners and donors, in and outside the country. The impact we have made so far through our work speaks for itself. Our role as catalysts in making a difference and the lives we have changed are testimonies of our successful association with them and our supporters. Across our program areas, we have been implementing many need-based projects and initiatives with support from our stakeholders. 

We need to protect the future of India and provide them with a safe and healthy childhood which is free from discrimination. We are supporting millions of children and we invite you to visit our projects and meet children like Meena and get the opportunity to extend your warmth and love to them!
