India has been one of the hardest hit nations in the world during the pandemic. Their private sector unemployment reached 80% at one point. When our partners were finally able to reach the brick factories, they found a community wrestling with starvation, suicide, and depression.
The whole country was starting to adapt the new normal life but the new life didn’t included these people as it’s difficult for them to maintain social distancing and they have to go from place to place for work. So they were still unaccepted by the people.
We started going to the slums daily and started a feeding program there. One day when we were feeding the people a young girl came to us with a book in her hand and told that she was missing school. She was one of the girl we got in school last year. She told us that she really wanted to study. So we took the book and started teaching her.
We realized that this pandemic has taken away the opportunity from the kids to study. The kids just started adapting the school environment. We started the tuition in the area and started teaching them in small groups.”

Back to School
Hope is returning to this precious community. Our partners continue to feed families and tutor the children in the midst of the difficulty.
Now we are faced with another opportunity to change the future for so many children. The government of India is opening schools again on October 19th. The 862 children that the Impact Nations family rescued last year will once again be able to go to school!
In addition, we have already raised enough for another 230 children to begin their education. How many more can we rescue from a life of slavery and send to school?
YOU can send a child to school for only $130 today!
