You Can Give a Child in India a Future!

You may just be settling in to summer break – going to the pool, gardening, vacationing, cooking on the deck. But for kids in India, summer break is already over. Classrooms are again filled with bright faces and laughter, as children reunite with their friends and settle in for the next academic year.

But even as these eager young minds return to the the classroom, there’s a sad truth many of them will face. Before they reach high school, 60 percent (47 million) will have dropped out of school. Imagine that! What if three out of every five children in your neighborhood never finished school? Life in America would be very different.

While the reasons for drop out vary, there are some basic causes that seem to permeate especially in rural India. Parents often choose to keep their daughters home for safety concerns and to help with chores. Likewise, young men leave their education to find a job and help supplement the family’s meager income.

Simple solutions will not solve the complex issues these young people face. Education alone will not be a comprehensive solution. It will take much more to help these children grow up to become the next generation of godly leaders, which India so desperately lacks today. But you can help.

With your support and prayers, India Gospel League (IGL) takes a multi-faceted approach to enable children to stay in school and prepare them for future leadership. From education to love, from spiritual mentoring to career guidance, IGL’s children’s ministry, currently serving 8,000+ children, has proven effective at giving children a future of which they could only dream.

IGL childcare workers are presently seeking drop-outs in rural villages to reenroll them. It is imperative that all these children receive every help to remain on the path to leadership.  So how can you help? You can give these young people the love and support they desperately need! Through clothes, nutritious meals and schools supplies, you can change the lives of these children forever.

 


Ways You can Help

Clothes for Children

Clothes for Children

When children come to an IGL home, they come with just the clothes on their backs which, in some cases, are just tattered rags. For less than the cost of a pair of sneakers, you can provide this most basic need.

School Supplies

School Supplies

Most children in rural India do not have access to quality education, let alone the supplies they need for school. At IGL's schools children have access to both. Your gift can help provide a young mind with the tools he or she needs to take the fullest advantage of the education offered by IGL.
