The statistics are heart-wrenching:
An estimated 11 million (unofficial numbers put it as high as 60 million) children in India are struggling as child laborers, most working in hazardous and degrading conditions, for an average of 12 hours a day.
Lured by the hope of finding work, more than 2 million children, mainly girls aged 5-15, are forced into prostitution and sexual slavery.
When even one child goes to school, it completely changes the family’s dynamics. This program is perhaps these families’ only means to pull themselves out of poverty. Order your scarves by December 10 to ensure arrival by Christmas.
