Education is where it all begins - a fundamental human right. 

Unfortunately, this is far from the reality we are facing today. In the Nandyal and Sirivel mandals of the Kurnool district in Andrha Pradesh, India, problems such as human trafficking (#2 in the state), child marriages and child labour are widely prevalent and interfere with the development of this region and the opportunities the children receive. As a consequence of a severe drought hits between 2001 and 2018, they are facing chronic poverty.

In these poor communities, education is often the first right that falls away as the families fight for survival and against hunger. Yet, we believe this is the only way to escape the poverty trap in the future - the only way to stop child marriages, child labour and human trafficking. NewBeginnings India aims to fund the education of 47 children (30 girls, 17 boys - some with parents who have passed away because of or are infected by HIV) for an initial support of one or two years, simultaneously offering job trainings to the parents/guardians to increase income earnings so they can take over this support in upcoming years. For 85$, a child receives all it needs to complete one year of education. This covers tuition fees, text books, writing books, two sets of uniforms, a pair of shoes and stationaries. This small donation can make all the difference in the world to this child's future.

As a special thank you, each donor will receive a personalized thank you card and handmade craft from the child who faces a better future because of you (email sarahloverarivas@nctindia.org). Let's fight for this fundamental human right - everyone deserves to escape the poverty trap and education is a great way to do so.
