LOCATION: Brick Factories, Northern India
GOAL: Rescue children from slavery by sending them to school
STILL NEEDED: $130,000
Only $130 Per Child!
We have an opportunity to rescue 1000 children from a life of slavery!
In Northern India, entire families are working in brick factories to pay off their debt to the factory owners. Children as young as five years old spend their days making bricks and piling them high.
Unfortunately, their “wages” are only enough to pay off the interest on the loan. Without the ability to pay the full balance, their work will never be done.
With no chance at an education or even a glimpse at life outside the factory, these kids face a very bleak future.
But everything is about to change!
One factory owner is showing mercy. He has agreed to partner with us to send the children from his factories to school instead. We need your help to get these children registered for school before the school year begins in April 2019.
Your gift of $130 will provide:
- Three school uniforms
- Two pairs of shoes
- Registration fees
- Text books & school supplies
Once the children are enrolled, the state government will subsidize their education for the rest of their school years, while the local school board will locate corporate sponsors for ongoing support.
Imagine changing a child’s entire future for only $130!
