Poverty in India

 One third of India’s people live in extreme poverty, going hungry for days at a time, getting sick from preventable diseases, and struggling to find clean water. With so many challenges, millions of children in India cannot attend school long enough to graduate.

Children trapped in poverty are forced to drop out and find ways to survive, working 12-hour days or marrying men who are decades older. And when they have children? The devastating cycle continues.

60 years of child sponsorship in India

World Vision’s work in India began in 1958. Generous people like you now sponsor over two million children there. The work impacts more than 26 million children.

How can we stop the cycle? 

Sponsoring a child is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. When you sponsor a child in India, you give access to life-changing essentials like clean water, improved nutrition, healthcare, education, and economic opportunity for their parents.

Child sponsorship means that kids are healthy and stay in school. Parents can protect and provide for them. The generational chains of poverty are broken!

The seeds of change extend not just to sponsored children and their families, but to the communities where they live. With your partnership, World Vision’s local staff in India come alongside your child’s community to identify their unique challenges and how to solve them. Implementing sustainable, community-led solutions for their needs helps children not just survive but thrive.

With the generosity of sponsors like you, millions of children in India have been lifted out of life-threating poverty, along with their families.
